I figured I'd post here and see if anyone could help me.
My name is Stephanie and I am looking for my father. His name is Michael Gerbino and he grew up on Staten Island. He has a sister named Diane, who was friends with my mother Sandy. Michael's childhood friend is my mother's cousin Dominic (Dom).
I'm not sure where exactly on the island he grew up. He would be about 40 now. He has dark hair (from what I've seen in a picture) and had a mustache April 1984. He was best man at Dom and Jane Servello's wedding. My mom believes he married his highschool sweetheart.
My family is not supportive in helping me find him, and I have very little to go on from my mother. I believe they are still in contact but will not speak to me on the topic. I'm not sure why. From a rumor I heard, his mother, my grandmother, had recently passed away.
I would like to find my father, and learn a little more about me. Of course I would not want to intrude in his life,or ruin what he has, but all I would want is one meeting for lunch. Just to meet him.
If anyone knows any Michaels who grew up on Staten Island, or anything I have mentioned above please contact me.
