Below is his obituary from the Woodfin Funeral Home in Mufreesboro, TN.
Michael Christopher Semich, 35, a life-long resident of Rutherford County, Tennessee, died unexpectedly on October 15, 2014.
Mike is survived by his wife Danielle Dean Semich; father, Deacon Peter Semich and mother Alice Blevins Semich; brother Brian Anthony Semich, sister-in-law Amanda Dirksen Semich and nephew Preston Joseph Semich; father- and mother-in-law Joe and Shirley Dean; sister- and brother-in-law Nichole Dean and John Paul Corley; brother-in-law Shawn Dean; nephew Max Dean and three nieces, Treasure, Eden and Summer Corley.
Mike was born in Murfreesboro on February 18, 1979. He went to Walter Hill Elementary and graduated from Oakland High School in 1997. One of his greatest accomplishments, other than wooing his wife Danielle, was earning the rank of Eagle Scout with Boy Scout Troop #538. He graduated from the Middle Tennessee State University in 2001 with a degree in computer science and has worked as a senior developer at NASBA since 2005. On April 6, 2013, he married Danielle, a postdoctoral fellow at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Mike was a devoted husband and an avid homebrew master. He was president and founding member of the Mid-State Brew Crew. He was a spiritual man and involved in many church activities; he was a member in the 3rd Degree in the Knights of Columbus. Mike was filled with abounding energy, love, and concern for others. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him, but his memory will last a lifetime.
Visitation will be from 4:00 until 7:00 p.m. with a Rosary at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday October 19, 2014 at Woodfin Memorial Chapel.
A funeral Mass is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. Monday October 20, 2014 at the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church on Tennessee Boulevard. Father Mark Sappenfield will officiate.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Rose of Lima Catholic School or Church, both organizations that Michael was committed to in time, talent, and treasure.
