Michael Eugene Deal, 70, died Thursday, October 8, 2015 at his home in Sykesville, Maryland. Michael was born in Oakland, California on March 9, 1945 to Art and Bobby Semple. He has been a resident of Sykesville since high school. Michael joined the Navy in 1964, where he served on active duty aboard the USS Dominant, and was then honorably discharged in 1967, where he served in the Naval Reserve. Michael started his IT career at Montgomery Ward Corporation but then rose to management in the IT department of the Social Security Administration where he retired in May of 2003 after almost 29 years of service. Michael was an avid fisherman and deer hunter, both with a bow and rifle, hunting locally and in the mid-Atlantic area, and occasionally in other areas of the country. He enjoyed restoring old cars into hot rod vehicles, which he would then display at local area car shows, along with his friends. Michael is fondly remembered for occasionally taking in stray dogs and cats that wandered through the neighborhood needing a home. Michael is survived by his son, Kenneth, son of Michael Jane Deal; his stepfather, Robert Newcomer; his sister Toni Deal and his nephew and his wife, Case and Laurie Seibert and grandniece Jessica; his sister Lauren Newcomer-Leverett and her husband, Fred and nephews Cole and Braeden and his nephew Brett and his wife Mandy, and a grandnephew Bryce; his sister Robin Lancaster and her husband, Michael, and his nephews Austin, Connor and Logan and his niece, Taylor. He also leaves close friends and neighbors, Tara and Leon, who cared for him in recent years. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 24th, 2015 at 10:00 am at Haight Funeral Home and Chapel, 6416 Sykesville Road in Sykesville. Interment will be family and close friends only, at the Newcomer Family Cemetery following the service. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to www.copdfoundation.org.
