Michael Allen DallaRosa, the tenacious champion who devoted his life to serving the community through public service and law enforcement, died Tuesday, August 23 after a 9 year battle against cancer.  He was 55. Mike was born in Sanford, Florida on April 18, 1961 to the Navy family of James and Loretta DallaRosa. He grew up in Daytona Beach and graduated in 1979 from Spruce Creek High School. Following graduation, Mike joined Port Orange Fire Rescue as a firefighter paramedic. He soon rose to the level of Commander. Pursuing his lifelong dream of law enforcement, Mike was sworn into the Florida Marine Patrol as an officer in 1992. His dedication to serving and protecting soon allowed him to promote to the position of Lieutenant.  In 1996, Mike achieved another milestone by becoming a Federal Agent with the National Marine Fisheries Service, and finally, he became a Federal Air Marshall with the Department of Homeland Security. These Federal positions took Mike to visit and live in all corners of the world. In 2007, upon diagnosis of his cancer, Mike retired as an Assistant Special Agent in Charge with the Air Marshall Service in Washington DC. Mike is survived by his brothers Wendell and James and sister Teresa. He leaves behind his treasured sons Matthew and Johnathon, and his beloved wife and soulmate Janelle. A funeral mass will be held at Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church on September 10, 2016 at 8:30AM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to The American Cancer Society.

    From, across the miles our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad occasion of losing your loved one. Mike has and always will have a special place in our hearts, growing up he was like a brother...we played , we fought, we grew up and went our separate ways but always knew home. He fought a great battle and is now at peace.
