( November 25, 1926 – February 01, 2021 )
Michael Semersky of Cary, NC passed away on Monday February 1, 2021 at the age of 94.
Mike was born in Brooklyn, NY on November 25, 1926 to the late Mary Kopelic and Andrew Semersky. He was a loving Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather. He was affectionately called “Grandpa Mike” by his Grand Children, the rest of us called him Pop. He is preceded in death by his wife Alice (Brown) Semersky. He was the youngest child and was preceded in death by his sisters Anna and Mary and brothers Andrew, Johnny and Nick. Mike and Alice raised three sons, Jim and his wife Patti, Bill and his wife Ginny, and Ed and his wife Erika. He enjoyed being around his Grandchildren Sherri Harris and her husband James, Amanda Seeger, Derek, Chelsea and Jessica. He was so proud when he became a Great Grandfather to Ansley, Andrew, Katelyn, Joseph, and Logan. This is when the Grandpa Mike name was given.
Mike was a World War II Veteran serving in the Army as a mechanic. He took that training and worked as a mechanic and machinist for the City of New York, where he retired in 1977.
Mike was a former member of the Hasler-Kamp Post American Legion, a retired member of the Lake Carmel Volunteer Fire Department, and past member of the volunteer amateur Radio Club QSY and R.A.C.E.S Emergency Radio Club.
We remember him as always doing something; he never sat still for very long. He designed and built the house in Carmel, NY where we spent many of our childhood years. To all of his family and friends, he will be missed, but he was looking forward to being with Alice again.
We love you Pop and Grandpa Mike!!
