Irvin "Mike" Nissen March 26, 1930 - September 11, 2021 Born and raised Kamar Iowa, Mike passed away peacefully on September 11th of natural causes at the age of 91. Mike worked his way through school and had his first teaching job in a country school there. Mike joined the Navy and was stationed in San Diego. Upon discharge he became a teacher in the Inglewood School District. He subsequently earned his Masters in School Education from USC and became the Superintendent of all of the elementary schools in the Inglewood District. After 28 years, Mike eventually retired from the education field and then went to work at Sea-Land in the Shipping Industry. Mike's "hobby" was entertaining his numerous friends. He had a great smile, and infectious laugh and was loved by many - he will be sorely missed. Mike's funeral will be at McNerneys Funeral Chapel in San Pedro this Wednesday at 10 AM. In lieu of flowers, Mike has asked that all donations be made to the Boys & Girls Club of San Pedro: 1200 S. Cabrillo Avenue, San Pedro 90731.
