Please share a memory of Michael to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

On Friday, June 14th, 2024, Michael (Mike) Silver, loving husband and father of three, passed away at the age of 70.

Mike was born on March 30th, 1954 in Spokane, WA to Ilene and Stanley Silver. There he and his three siblings, spent their days in the family diner, until he eventually found his way to the University of Washington, where he received his Bachelor of Science in Microbiology.

Postbaccalaureate, in the late 1980’s, Mike migrated to the other side of the country and settled in North Carolina.

In Winston Salem, North Carolina, Mike began a career as the Operations Manager of bakeries. Through said career path he found his wife Kelly, and with her daughter, Kristen, and his two sons, Aaron and Zachary they formed a loving bond and strong familial unit that continued until his death.

Mike, was described by those around him as reserved, though they would also commend him on never having met someone he could not make laugh. He was forever doting on his family as the patriarch, though he remained a “mama’s boy” calling his mother nearly every day until his last. Avid sports lover and enthusiast of all things: cinematic, gourmet, and technological – there was never a conversation he could not breach. He was known for his quick wit, immense knowledge, and keen sense as an epicure.

Mike is preceded in death by his father, Stan. He is survived by his mother Ilene, his wife Kelly, his three children, Aaron, Zachary, and Kristen, his three siblings, Julie, Tamara, and Mark, and several cousins, nieces, and nephews, as well as his work family and multitude of close friends. A remembrance will be held on Saturday, July 27th, 2024 in his home in Mebane, North Carolina.
