Migliaccio struck by car on bike

ADVERTISEMENT

Fraser Yachts technical superintendent Roberto Migliaccio was killed Sept. 21 after he was hit by a car while riding his bicycle near his house in La Colle Sur Loup, a small French village near Nice.

He leaves behind his wife, Julia, and their two young daughters, Matilda and Gaia.

“Roberto … was very kind with all the people around him, so fair with his colleagues and loyal to the company,” a colleague wrote. “Sea and boats were his passion, first as a captain and later as technical superintendent for our company. … He was a fantastic sportsman, taking part in many triathlons.

“Deep in his soul and his whole attitude was one of a team player. If there is one thing to do to honor his memory, it will be to follow his pace and keep that very essential spirit of cooperation within our company.”

An online fundraising page has been created on You Caring. To find it, Google “you caring Roberto Migliaccio”.
