Mokrzycki, Michael J.  
Michael J. Mokrzycki of West Newbury; 52 WEST NEWBURY -- Michael J. Mokrzycki, of West Newbury, died unexpectedly at home on Friday evening, December 19, after living life as fully as anyone could in 52 years. He was the loving husband of Jill Gambon, with whom he shared 21 years of marriage, and the devoted father of Brady and Connor Mokrzycki, both students at the Pingree School. Mike's natural curiosity about nearly anything led him to the perfect career as an award-winning news reporter and editor for the Associated Press for a quarter-century. He was raised in the Maspeth section of Queens in New York City, the only child of the late Walter and Frances (Koscielny) Mokrzycki. He graduated from Holy Cross High School in Queens and Boston University's College of Communication, where he served as editor-in-chief of the independent campus newspaper, the Daily Free Press. He later studied survey research at the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research. He joined the staff of the Associated Press in 1985 working in the AP's New England bureau in Maine and New Hampshire. He distinguished himself with coverage of national politics. From there, he joined the AP's general desk in New York as a reporter and editor. He was the founding director of the AP Polling Unit, where he set and enforced standards for coverage of election surveys. In 2009, he established Mokrzycki Survey Research Services, an independent opinion research consultancy, where his clients included NBC News, Pew Research Center, the Washington Post, the University of Massachusetts Lowell, ABC News and others. In his most recent engagement with NBC News, he served as manager of election polling for the November 2014 midterm elections. He was an active member of the American Association for Public Opinion Research, where he was elected to the executive council and worked to preserve the history of survey research. After settling in West Newbury, Mass., in 2000, Mike became involved in open space preservation efforts. His idea of a perfect day revolved around anything he could do with his boys, whether that was a powder day at Mad River Glen in Vermont, where he was a shareholder, surf fishing in the waters off Plum Island or sharing his love for the Grateful Dead and other bands. In addition to his wife and sons and his oft-photographed Wheaten terrier mix dog, Teddy, Mike is survived by his loving family: Andy Gambon and Karen Haggerty (Chelmsford), Mary Gambon (Lowell), Donna Gambon (Chelmsford), and Chris and Susan Gambon of Chelmsford; two nephews, Chris Gambon (Lowell) and Ryan Haggerty (Chelmsford); and his godfather, John Hupalo (Orland Park, IL); as well as many cousins and an international community of friends who will always celebrate his intense zest for living. MOKRZYCKI -- Visiting Hours will be held Tuesday, December 23, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at BLAKE FUNERAL HOME, 24 Worthen St., Chelmsford, Mass. A funeral Mass will be offered at 9 a.m. Wednesday, December 24, at St. Mary's Church, 25 North Rd., Chelmsford. PLEASE MEET AT CHURCH. Interment will follow in Pine Ridge Cemetery, Chelmsford. His family will host a celebration of his life in the spring. Donations in Mike's memory can be made to the Warren J. Mitofsky Fund at the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research, University of Connecticut, Homer Babbidge Library, 369 Fairfield Way, Unit 1164, Storrs, CT 06269-1164; MercyFirst (the New York child care agency from which Mike was adopted) 525 Convent Road, Syosset, NY 11791 or the charity of your choice.
