Obituary: Patrick ‘Mike’ Pomorski, Sr., 79, of Ludington

Patrick Michael Pomorski Sr. (Mike), 79, of Ludington passed away peacefully Thursday, May 27, 2021 at his home surrounded by his family after a courageous year and half battle with cancer. He was born June 9, 1941 in Ludington to Edward and Kathryn (Dahringer) Pomorski. Mike attended Ludington High School. After school, he worked as a foreman for Ludington Plating. Mike left his foreman job to work alongside his mother at Pomorski’s Tavern. In 1977 the Tavern was destroyed by fire. At that time Mike rebuilt and took ownership. He went on to run the family business until his retirement in 2004. After retirement Mike could often be found taking leisurely cruises with his dog Gage.

Mike married Carol Ann Morin on April 24, 1965 at St. Simon Catholic Church.  He was a member of the Ludington American Legion, a Gold Member of the Eagles, St. Simon Catholic Church, and a member of the Ludington Boat Club. Mike loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great granddaughter Ava. He took pride in watching all of his grandkids sporting events and could always be spotted in the stands. He also enjoyed deer and duck hunting, boating, traveling, and NASCAR.

Mike will be greatly missed by his wife of 56 years, Carol; his children, Patrick Jr. (Dena) Pomorski of Custer, Edward (Karisa) Pomorski of Ludington, Dawn (Ron) Sarto of Ludington, and Teresa (Andy) Wendt of Ludington; his nine grandchildren, Nicholas (Paige), Joshua, Kevin (Jenna), Ashley, Dillon, Cassie, Maressa, Kyle, and Connor; his great-granddaughter, Ava Pomorski; his brother, Timothy (Kristin) Pomorski of Ludington; and his best friend Ronnie “Snowball” Sniegowski.

Besides his parents, Mike was preceded in death by his brother, Thomas Pomorski.

A Mass from the Order of Christian Funerals will be held on Monday, June 7, 2021 at 11 a.m. at St. Simon Catholic Church with Rev. Wayne B. Wheeler, Jr. presiding. Family will greet friends starting at 10 a.m.
