Born in Jersey City, N.J., “Big Mike” grew up in Bayonne, N.J. with his parents Jean (nee: Del Rio) and Tommy Zawistowski before settling in Cedar Grove. He worked as a landscaper with his Uncle Mark, and enjoyed spending time with his amazing son, watching WWE, movies, wrestling, or playing sports. He was known for his quick wit, great sense of humor, infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit. He was a good man with a heart of gold to all that knew him.

Predeceased by his parents, he is survived by his precious son, Thomas Rogalski; and the Zawistowski, Ruymen, Manieri, Del Rio, and Rivera families, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and close lifelong friends.
