Obituary

Michael Nevitt Kokoska died on June 11, 2022, leaving a legacy of love and integrity.  Mike was born in Charlotte, NC on November 2, 1941 to Michael George and Mary Kendrick Kokoska.  He graduated from North Carolina State University, where he played on the tennis team and was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.  He received his Master’s Degree in Economics from Indiana University and was a CPA and CFP.  He retired from BellSouth (AT&T) after 32 years.

Mike was a true gentleman with an unwavering moral compass and had a lifelong thirst for knowledge in a variety of fields.  He was an avid golfer, forever in search of that elusive perfect swing, and served on the Harbor Club MGA board as Treasurer for many years.  After retirement, he volunteered his services to Shepherd Center, Side by Side Clubhouse, First Tee and Meals on Wheels. Mike loved to travel and famously made The Plan for every day of each trip.  He will be remembered for his intelligence, quiet wit and passion for his family.

Mike is survived by his adored wife of 52 years, Jane Hamrick Kokoska. He was predeceased by his daughter, Perryn Michelle Kokoska.  Left to cherish his memory are his son, Peter Michael Kokoska, daughter-in-law, Diane Kokoska, and  grandchildren Bryan Bettiol, Shannon Bettiol and Michaela Kokoska, all of Atlanta GA.  He is also survived by his brother-in-law, Edward Hamrick (Dianne) as well as many relatives and friends.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.  The family requests any memorials be made to St. Mary’s Hospice House, 1660 Jennings Mill Road, Watkinsville GA 30677 or to Side by Side Brain Injury Clubhouse, 1001 Main St., Stone Mountain, GA 30083.  McCommons Funeral Home, 109 W.
