ORLANDO, Fla. — Michael R. “Mike” Nofsinger, 77, of Orlando, Fla., and formerly of Luke, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Feb. 7, 2013.
Born Oct. 24, 1935 in Luke, he was a son of the late Roland and Veronica (Cosgrove) Nofsinger.
He graduated from Bruce High School in 1954, served in the US Air Force and, in 1957, married his high school sweetheart, Midge. He graduated with his Master’s Degree from the University of Maryland where he also played basketball. Mike and his family were longtime residents of Tampa and then Orlando where he was President of Moran Printing Company until he retired in 1999. He had a passion for golf and enjoyed spending time in the mountains of North Carolina.
Mike was as witty in conversation as he was visionary in business. Above all, he was a loving husband, the best father and cherished friend. He will be dearly missed.
Mike is survived by Midge (McRobie) Nofsinger, his beloved wife of 56 years, and three daughters, Linda Wright (Hal) of Atlanta, Ga., Kris Myerson (Ron) of Orlando and Lorie Rossi (Mike) of Tampa, Fla. He is also survived by five precious grandchildren; Kelsey and Michael Myerson, Rogan Wright, Sarah and Caroline Rossi; two brothers, Bob Nofsinger (Joan) and Dean Nofsinger, both of Keyser, W.Va.; and five sisters, Anne Spriggs (Phil) of Berkeley Springs, W.Va., Mary Jo Torbet (Jack) of Sun City West, Ariz., Helen Holder of Keyser, Jean Burton (Harry) of Keyser and Sue Smith (Glenn) of Williamsport, as well as many other treasured family members.
