Michael Taubes Turzilli, 24, of Greenwich, passed away in his home on October 27, 2017.
He graduated from Greenwich High School in 2011 and was a student at Fordham University.
Michael was a comedian, musician and writer who was the former lead singer of the band Skinny Blonde and was well known at comedy clubs around New York City.
He was a rising star in the music and entertainment industry and worked as a freelance producer making beats for various up and coming artists. He had just signed a contract to write and star in a ten episode web series ‘Double Homicide.’
He was a shining light in all our lives, known for his amazing sense of humor and effortless confidence.
He had a profound impact on everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him and will be missed by many.
He is survived by his loving mother Lisa Taubes; maternal grandmother Laura Taubes; his brother Matt Turzilli; and numerous loving aunts, uncles, and cousins; the Taubes family, Martin family, Levitan family, Lenihan family and Turzilli family.
He was preceded in death by his father, Gary Turzilli; his maternal grandfather Frank Taubes, and paternal grandmother Yolanda Schmale. Michael was a bright and beautiful soul just beginning to shine, and his path was cut short due to an accidental overdose of heroin and fentanyl.
It is never too soon to reach out to someone who is struggling. He had so much more to give this world and he will be missed dearly.
