Michael A. Benjamino, Sr., 74 of Jackson, went home to be with his Lord on Thursday, July 20, 2023. Michael worked as a computer programmer for McGraw Hill of Hightstown for 10 years. He was born and raised in Long Branch and graduated from Long Branch High School. He served in the US Army during the Vietnam War. Michael was in fellowship at the Bethany Bible Chapel of Toms River. He enjoyed watching all sports, but was an avid fan of the New York Mets and Las Vegas Raiders. Always bringing a smile to his face was visiting with family and hearing about his grandchildren. He was predeceased by his parents Angelo and Thelma Benjamino, a sister Veronica Pesapane, and brothers in law Dennis Rohlfs and James Palumbo.
Michael is survived by his wife Patricia; two sons, Michael Benjamino, Jr. and his wife Rebecca, Kevin Benjamino and his wife Megan; five grandchildren, Michael, III, Nicholas, Kylie, Torie and Charlotte; two sisters, Janice Palumbo and Mary Rohlfs; and brother in law Ralph Pesapane.
