MECHANICVILLE - Michael “Cruiser” D’Aloia, 72, lifelong resident of Mechanicville, passed away on his birthday, April 23, 2020, at Albany Medical Center with his loving family at his side. Sadly, Mike died as a result of a nearly month long battle with COVID-19, after overcoming several other medical obstacles in his life.
Born in Troy on April, 23, 1948, son of the late Albert and Philomena “Fanny” Pucci D’Aloia, he was a 1966 graduate of Mechanicville High School.
Most recently, Mike worked as a Quality Control Inspector and retired from Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory, West Milton and previously had worked for G.E. Schenectady as a draftsman. As a young adult, he also worked for B&M Railroad and Ford Automotive.
A longtime member of the Mechanicville Athletic Club, he enjoyed his Monday night Gin games with fellow members. A horse racing fanatic, he loved the yearly meet at the Saratoga Race Track and trips to the casino. He also enjoyed fishing as well as vacations with his family. The yearly trip to Ocean City, NJ with his family and friends, where countless unforgettable memories were created, was something he always looked forward to. Most of all, he will be missed on the sidelines of his grandchildren’s sporting events and in the seats watching their academic and student achievements. Family meant the world to him, as he was a loving husband, father to his son and daughter and always strived to be the best grandfather he could be.
Survivors include his wife of nearly 50 years, Donna Caputo D’Aloia, whom he married on August 29, 1970, son Michael(Valerie) D’Aloia and daughter Jaclyn(Stephen II) Sgambati, both of Mechanicville, grandchildren Nevaeh and Anthony “Chooch” D’Aloia, Andrew, Michael, Stephen III and Emily Sgambati, his sister Corinne(Dr. James) Chauvin, sisters in law Bea Lane and Patricia(Thomas) Cordier, brother in law Anthony(Gloria) Caputo and many loving nieces and nephews.
Current services will be private and held at the convenience of the family. During this extremely difficult time, we strongly encourage friends and family to visit to share condolences, photos you may have and memories of Mike you have, with his family.
Those wishing to make a contribution in his name are asked to donate to the American Heart Association, 4 Atrium Dr., Suite 100, Albany, NY 12205 or American Diabetes Assoc, 5 Pine West Plz Ste 505, Albany, NY 12205 in memory of Michael A. D’Aloia.

Donna, Jackie, Mike,
Five years living above you hold so many wonderful memories. You were so gracious to welcome us into your home and your family. We loved time spent by the pool with all of you. Mike would always make us laugh and the girls just adored him. (Although the twisty donuts were also a big hit that he always bought!)
We are thinking of you all and are sending prayers. We will always hold Mike deeply in our hearts. Love to you ❤️

I was saddened to learn of my cousin Michael’s passing. Michael grew up with my dad, his Uncle Teddy, as they were close in age and disposition. They both loved spending time with their families, telling stories, and playing cards. Michael was always there for my dad, especially during the end of of my dad’s life. He is deeply loved and will be greatly missed.
