Michael David Wolrich of Warwick passed away in his sleep while in his new home Tuesday, July 19, 2011. He was 63.
Born in New York City, Mike was the son of the late Irving Wolrich and the late Roslyn (Rosenbaum) Wolrich.
He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Unity College and his Master of Science degree from Kansas State College of Pittsburg. Upon graduating with his Master's degree, Mike moved to Pennsylvania to secure a position as a clinical psychologist. It was during a job interview at Eastern State School and Hospital when he met his loving wife of 37 years, Ruth L. (Schmidt) Wolrich.
Known as 'Dr. Mike' by many of his patients, he practiced as a clinical psychologist for more than 39 years.
In addition to his wife, Mike is survived by two children, Jason Wolrich and his wife, Michelle (Tulino) Wolrich, of Jackson, Fla., and Amy (Wolrich) Moskovitz and her husband, Jason Moskovitz, of Bedminster. He also is survived by his loving and adoring grandsons, Zachary Moskovitz and Jordan Wolrich.
Mike thoroughly enjoyed spending time with and doing things with his family.
He was an avid New York Giants, Mets and Rangers fan. He enjoyed a game of poker, music and music trivia, and horse racing, among many other things.
Mike never lost his New York accent even after all these years living in Pennsylvania. He had a terrific sense of humor and was a devoted, compassionate and giving man to so many others.
