Obituary for Michael Kornas

Michael Kornas
Somerville, NJ

Michael Kornas, 81, of Somerville, NJ, passed away peacefully surrounded by his children on Thursday, February 1, 2018 at Morristown Memorial Hospital, Morristown. Born and raised in Elizabeth, he formerly resided in Raritan before moving to Somerville 50 years ago.
Michael was a 1957 Summa Cum Laude graduate of Rutgers School of Pharmacy in New Brunswick. For over 30 years, Mike was a preceptor for Rutgers School of Pharmacy. Mickey was a very dedicated, hardworking and compassionate pharmacist. He was the proud owner of Peter Pan Pharmacy in South Plainfield for the past 58 years. For 29 years, Mike worked side by side with his son David, also a pharmacist. He also was proud to have worked at Peter Pan Pharmacy with his beloved late wife Judy and his beloved late mother in law Helen Macko.
Mickey was proud to serve his country as a medic in the National Guard branch of the United States Army. He was a parishioner and former Church Council Officer of St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church in Raritan. Mickey was a former altar server and parishioner of St. Vladimir’s Ukrainian Catholic Church in Elizabeth. For over 25 years, he was proud to serve on the volunteer Somerville Rescue Squad. He was a former member of the South Plainfield Rotary and the South Plainfield Business Association. Many years ago, Mike volunteered as a Somerville little league coach.
Michael was a very generous, compassionate and caring man who would give you the shirt off his back. He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He was an avid sports fan who especially loved cheering on his grandchildren. He loved watching his grandchildren act, sing and dance. He loved playing pinochle, poker and horseshoes at family socials, doing crossword puzzles on the beach with his family; taking trips to Atlantic City and vacationing in Aruba with his late wife Judy.
Michael was preceded in death by his parents, Mary (Senitch) and Steven Kornas, and his beloved wife of 44 years, Judith Macko Kornas.
Surviving are his loving daughter, Carolyn Karbasian and husband David of Medford Lakes; his dear son, David and wife Jennifer of Neshanic Station; his dear brothers, Steve of Colonia and Ted and his wife Beverly of Nutley; his wonderful sister, Olga Martynuk of Monroe Township; and the apples of his eye, his five cherished grandchildren, Kelly and Zach Karbasian and Otto, Belle and Katarina Kornas.
Viewing will be held on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Branchburg Funeral Home, 910 US Highway 202 South, Branchburg, NJ. Funeral services will begin with a prayer at 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at the funeral home followed by a 10:00 a.m. Funeral Liturgy with Rev.
