Michael W. Tersigne was born September 5, 1956, in Wooster, Ohio and received his wings on December 16, 2021, in Houston, Texas after a valiant battle against metastatic bladder cancer. Mike graduated from Wooster High School in 1975 and attended and worked many years at the College of Wooster where he met lifelong friends. After moving to Houston in 1978 Mike prayed to God to meet his soulmate and soon after met the love of his life; Sonia in 1979. It was a love story that blossomed for 42 years.
Mike had a quick sense of humor and enjoyed entertaining friends and family. He was sharp witted, had an amazing photographic memory, a wonderful sense of style and charisma and was deeply spiritual. Mike genuinely enjoyed over three decades of a real estate career with his wife, Sonia who will continue their legacy at Greenwood King Properties in Houston, Texas. His interest in real estate began at an early age. He loved walking through homes under construction and driving through neighborhoods studying all facets of construction, design, and architecture. In addition to helping clients Mike also enjoyed buying and selling homes in many areas of Houston, Galveston, Texas and Wooster, Ohio. His last home was acquired in his hometown of Wooster, Ohio sight unseen and was to be a retirement home to be shared with family & friends. He was proud to be able to restore the home just months before diagnosis and the pandemic. Sadly, the illness and the pandemic made it challenging to travel but he was able to spend time there this year. Fun times were spent in Galveston, Texas at Mardi Gras with Knights of Momus, The Galveston Artillery Club, and long beach runs and walks as well as time with family and grandchildren. He loved going for daily runs or walks in Memorial Park in Houston, Texas and in Oak Hill Park in Wooster as well as driving through Amish country in Ohio.
Mike is survived by his adoring wife, Sonia, stepfather Robert Byers, sister Louise Manfredi, stepson Chris O ™Docharty and beloved grandchildren Dylan Michele and John Wheeler, sister-in-law Susana O ™Docharty (Lynda), brothers-in-law Dennis O ™Docharty, John O ™Docharty, and Charles O ™Docharty (David) as well as nieces Jessa, Lauren, and Jazmin. He was predeceased by his mother Rose Tersigne Byers, father William C. Lawson, sister  Dianne Lawson Strassner, and daughter-in-law Lisa O ™Docharty. He is also survived by many cousins. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Heartfelt appreciation to sisters-in-law Susana O ™Docharty and Lynda Kornbleet. Special thanks to Kathy & Tony Poling, Texas Home Health Palliative Care and Seasons Hospice, nurse Kendra Dailey and aid Adriana for their loving care and support, Dr. Nancy E.
