The 2022 Run For The Animals is dedicated in memory of Miguel Bizzotto



“Michele Angelo Bizzotto passed away on October 4, 2021. Miguel did not even want an obituary, but agreed if it was kept short and to the point. Since he always refused to tell his age in life, we are honoring his wishes in death…….he was ageless. He is survived by his wife, Colleen Cajetan Killeen; daughters, Kelly Killeen-Bizzotto Moore, Christopher and Eleonora Bizzotto; sisters, Teresa Bizzotto and Angela Bizzotto Ortiz; and daughter-in-law, Jacquelyn Cashwell Bizzotto; and numerous grandchildren. He is predeceased by his father, Luigi Ignacio Bizzotto; mother, Maria Lopez; sister, Azucena Ester Bizzotto; and son, Justin Killeen-Bizzotto.”


Personal Note:


Miguel was an avid cyclist, a fine leather craftsman, and a superb chef.


I, like many others, came to know Miguel through his restaurant, Bizzotto’s Gallery Caffe, established in 1995.

In his restaurant, not only could you enjoy fine dining,

but you could find his beautiful leather purses and briefcases on display.

Miguel’s leather-work enjoyed the honor of two showings at the Smithsonian Institution.


I recall when I took up cycling back in 2010.

Miguel was part of our cycling group and even though he had twenty years on me,

I found him to be one tough cyclist…….

Oh, I how I miss those days!



Miguel had a soft spot in his heart for animals and he proudly sponsored "RFTA" every year as well as many other non-profits on the Shore.


I think the unexpected passing of his son, Justin, broke his heart. I pray they are together again.

Miguel’s passing has left a giant void in our community and he will forever be missed.
