Michael Schiavone 1959, Past Parent and Former Trustee

Michael Schiavone, a member of the Hamden Hall Class of 1959, former Trustee, and past parent, died on December 14.

Michael began his lifelong affiliation with our school community at an early age and continued his involvement as a parent. His children, Loren Schiavone 1980, Jay Schiavone 1981, and Michael S. Schiavone 1992, all attended Hamden Hall. His stepson, Nicholas Fisser, also attended Hamden Hall from 1993-1998.

In addition, Michael served on the Hamden Hall Board of Trustees for nearly two decades starting in the 1970s and again in 2000. As a major supporter of the 1985 campus initiative to build a new science, theater and fine arts, and cafeteria complex, Michael named the Schiavone Science Center after his parents, Joseph and Rip Schiavone. In later years – and as an avid golfer – Michael was a staunch supporter of Hamden Hall’s annual Golf Tournament.
Michael attended Boston University where he majored in psychology and played soccer and golf. He then entered the family scrap metal business, which his grandfather established in 1898. Michael retired in 1999 and ultimately sold the business. Upon his retirement, he began spending nine months of the year in Florida where he fished and played golf.

According to his family, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Please click here to read Michael's obituary.

The Hamden Hall Community extends sincere condolences to Michael’s wife Joyce and the entire Schiavone family.
