R. Michael “Mike” Ribolla, 79, passed away September 3, 2023, surrounded by his family. He was born July 3, 1944 in Huntington NY to Danilo Ribolla and Gloria (Fogg) Ribolla. He married Jan (Finfrock) Ribolla in 1972. They recently celebrated 51 years of marriage.
Mike graduated from the Thunderbird School of Global Management in 1973. He worked as a medical group administrator at several practices in Terre Haute, Indianapolis, and the South Bend area and became a fellow of the American College of Medical Group Administrators. Later in life, he volunteered at Goodwill and the South Bend Center for the Homeless as a career coach, where he considered each job offer for his students a personal victory. Mike loved classic cars, traveling, and spending time with his grandchildren. He will be remembered by his family and friends for his generosity, his quick wit, and his easy laugh.
Mike is survived by his wife Jan, sons Joshua Ribolla (Christine) and James Ribolla (Mandy), sisters Timi Lewis and Didi Harmon, grandchildren James, Dominic, Ada, and Maggie; and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents and brothers Pete, Bob, and Tom.
