Fahrenkopf, Michael J.  
Michael J. Fahrenkopf Age: 28 • East Greenbush, NY Michael James Fahrenkopf, 28, of East Greenbush New York, died suddenly on June 25, 2016. Michael James is survived by his loving, proud mother Heather (Campbell-Reilly) Zaninelli (Dr. Rocco Zaninelli) of Ballston Lake, and father David G. Fahrenkopf (Pam Fahrenkopf) of Hampstead, New Hampshire. Michael James was also survived by his four adoring, beloved sisters Jessica Jarvis, Lauren Goodall, Kaitlyn & Brianna Fahrenkopf; Step-sisters Sherilyn, Jennifer & Erica St. Louis; two devoted brothers Paul Mahar III and Riley Goodall; Adored nephews Michael & Frankie Emery; Grandparents, Darlene (Gramma) & Robert (Papa) Wood, Patricia & Jay Reilly and David R. Campbell; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, frat brothers, co-workers and friends. Michael James graduated with honors from Columbia High School, East Greenbush New York in 2007 where he also had a love for culinary that earned him recognition. He went onto to accomplish high standards including the presidents list and graduating with honors from Clarkson University in Potsdam New York. During his years at Clarkson he was inspired by many and a proud brother of the Fraternity Delta Tau Tau. Michael James started a very bright and successful career at IBM and later Globalfoundries in June 2011. He was well known for his accomplishments as a semiconductor photomask chemical process engineer and later the lead engineer with SEM metrology tools. Soon after settling into to Vermont Michael was a proud member of Burlington Rugby Club. In addition to his extraordinary career path Michael also led his life living for adventure. He enjoyed reading, music, hiking, bicycling, skiing and traveling. His love for life and adventure took him across the globe to Europe on a hiking adventure to Tour de Mont Blanc where his experiences brought him great pride and accomplishments. Last year Michael thought it would be another great adventure to just take a "quick trip" to Jamaica for his birthday. That is just who he was. In addition to his travels he spent time working out, preparing and planning to spend weeks walking 272 miles along "The long Trail". Later, his courage and love for adventure led him to enter into a very physical event called the Tough Mudder and proudly displayed his medals around his neck. Michael's life and career path were about to be enhanced by another world wide hiking trip to New Zealand this October which he enjoyed so much. Michael James will be missed and loved by so many. His heroic spirit, inspiration and laughter will live within any person that ever came across his path. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a memorial service at 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 30, 2016 from Wm. J. Rockefeller Funeral Home, Inc., 165 Columbia Tpk., Rensselaer, NY. Friends may call in the funeral home Thursday prior to the service from 1 to 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers the family is asking for any donations to be made to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, 950 New Loudon Road Latham NY, as Michael would wish for his little sister Lauren, a Type 1 Diabetic, or to the Mike Fahrenkopf Memorial Fund on Gofundme towards a scholarship for prospective college students desiring an engineering degree in Mike's name. Education was one of the most important things to Michael and we thank Morgan Knapton , his trusted friend and roommate of 3 years, for setting this up in my son's name. Thank you.
