July 1, 2023, Michael (Mike) Carmine, 62, from Gloucester, passed away peacefully at home with his wife Sandra Carmine at his side. He had been fighting a long battle with cancer and never gave up. His fight is over, and he is not suffering anymore.
Mike was born on February 23, 1961, to Bernice Carmine and Betty Roane in Newport News, Va. He was the oldest of three children. He was in the Marine Corp Reserves and did his training at Camp Lejeune. After being honorably discharged he became a police officer and worked 30 years for the Newport News Police Department. He loved being a police officer and was always working so hard to make sure everyone in his family was taken care of. He loved being a Granddaddy and always made sure his grandchildren had what they wanted. He worked his whole life for everyone else because that was the kind of person he was. His time off was spent taking the grandkids to do fun things and playing golf. He also loved to take family trips every year and was all about tradition. He was the glue that held the family together, and he will be missed very much.
Mike was predeceased by his father, Bernice Carmine, and brother, Tommy Joe Carmine. He is survived by his wife, Sandra Carmine; his mother, Betty Roane; his brother, Bobby Carmine; his children, Amanda Carmine, Robert Carmine, and Cassandra Carmine, and his grandchildren, Emma Carmine, Matthew Myers, Jackson Ferguson, Aiden New, Kylie Jurgensen, and Caleb Jurgensen.
Andrews Funeral Home, Gloucester is in charge of arrangements.
