Michael Fanone was formerly married to wife Hsin-Yi Wang. Get to know his family background.
On Tuesday, four officers who responded to the Capitol Hill riot testified in the US House. The group included Harry Dunn, Aquilino Gonell, Michael Fanone and Daniel Hodges.
Among them, Fanone had even suffered a near-death experience in the riot.
Michael Fanone Was Married To Wife Hsin-Yi Wang
Previously, Michael Fanone was married to wife Hsin-Yi Wang. Unfortunately, the relationship didn’t last long.
Hsin-Yi, aka Victoria Wang, used to Work in Washington DC as an executive assistant. Coincidentally, Michael and Victoria met each other at a bar.
After dating for some time, Fanone finally asked Victoria to be his wife. Likewise, the two were reportedly enjoying a meal at Park Cafe in Capitol Hill when the officer dropped the marriage question.
On June 5, 2010, Fanone and Wang finally said “I do” to each other. In addition, the couple added two beautiful daughters in the family named Piper Fanone and Seraphina Ming Fanone.
The former husband-wife are now officially divorced for some undisclosed reasons.
Nonetheless, the officer seems to have moved on from his past. He apparently has 2 more daughters now.
More on Michael Fanone Family Background
Michael Fanone family background includes his mother, Terry Fanone.
Terry has been supportive of her son’s fight since the start. She even gave a CNN interview with “How dare you?” remarks after Michael was injured in the riot.
However, there isn’t much information on Michael’s dad. Unlike his wife, he maintains a lowkey and private life.
As I listen to #OfficerMichaelFanone’s opening, heartfelt statement, I am certain #TFG is watching and ridiculing him because Ofc. Fanone and others prevented him from becoming an American autocrat, monarch, dictator and/or supreme leader. G-d bless our brave law enforcement! pic.twitter.com/EY8lzgmlmz

We speculate that Michael Fanone follows the Christian religion. He got married at a Victorian St Mary, Mother of God Church in Northwest Washington.
Nonetheless, we cannot be 100% before Fanone openly discusses his faith.

In fact, Michael was even injured in the incident after being shocked with a stun gun by one of the rioters. This eventually led him to a mild heart attack and a concussion.
Furthermore, Fanone also accused that he was beaten, stripped of his uniform and badge. The main culprit behind his attack was later identified as 35 years old Thomas Sibick and 18 years old Burno Cua.
