Michael A. Tiberio, 68, of Arlington, Virginia, passed peacefully at home on November 12, 2022. Despite surviving Hodgkin’s disease at 17, cancer surfaced once again.
A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Massachusetts Department of Geology, he also attended Boston College Department of Geology and Geophysics. His employ at MIT in Seismology led to a 42 year career as a Senior Scientist in Software Engineering.
Known to all for his limitless energy – he was a force who enjoyed every minute of every day. His Moto Guzzi love led to 4 National Titles, 160 trips to the Podium, and 3 years as a Top Ten AMA Pro Twins winner. Racing was the passion, but his skill at rebuilding engines and “modifying” motorcycles was legendary.
2017 brought a new passion: Land Speed Racing. On a dry lake bed in El Mirage, CA, he set a personal best of 141.69 mph.
Michael is survived by his wife of 34 years, Sondra; daughter, Robin (husband, Ryan Kerr); and son, Dominic. He is also survived by his two brothers, one sister, and many nieces and nephews.
Visitation will be December 3, 2022, from 1-4pm at Everly Funeral Home in Falls Church, VA.
