Michael B. Lamanteer, age 59 of Pennsville, passed away early Thursday morning, May 13, 2021, at home surrounded by his loving friends. He had fought a long and courageous battle with cancer over the last several years. Born in Elmer and raised in Cedarville to the late Bonino and Mary (Fecsko) Lamanteer, Michael graduated from Bridgeton High School, Class of 1979, and then attended Cumberland County College. He spent many years working as a welder, beginning at Millita Brothers in Cedarville.

He served for over ten years as a volunteer firefighter at the Willow Grove Fire Department in Pittsgrove from the mid 1980's to the mid 1990's. Michael did a little bit of everything in life, whether he was working on cars or using his carpentry skills, he was a true "jack of all trades." He also loved riding his Harley and was a longtime member of the Last Patrol. Michael will be sadly missed by his loving companion and caregiver Vickie Sassi of Pennsville; his son Michael Waltman-Lamanteer of Florida; good friend Linda Hannah of Vineland; three sisters, Karen Chew of North Carolina, Angela Waltman of Vineland, and Loretta Lamanteer of Chicago, Illinois; and three brothers, Dwayne Lamanteer of Bridgeton; David Lamanteer or Waterville, Maine, and Andrew Lamanteer of Vineland.
