John Michael Ceiswich, 76, of Sophia, entered into his heavenly home on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, at his home.
Born, July 28, 1946, Michael was raised in Manville, New Jersey by his parents, the late Michael Joseph Ceiswich and the late Susan Homyak Ceiswich. Michael graduated from High Point College with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. He worked for many years at Whites International as their finance and insurance manager. Michael was a faithful member of Archdale United Methodist Church. He was a member of the Friendship Sunday School class; previously serving as the class teacher, president of the class. Michael was a Lay Leader and would preach when a church needed a fill in minister. He was a man with a great sense of humor and would always be the one to tell the corny jokes and make the puns. Michael loved collecting novelty neckties and according to his family, he has the best collection around. He was an avid Dodgers fan, and enjoyed watching their games. Most importantly, Michael was a family man, he was a proud father and grandfather; he was always finding ways to show his love for them.

As Shel Silverstein once wrote, “There are no happy ending. Endings are the saddest part, so just give me a happy middle and a very happy start.”
This is where the sidewalk ends…
