Obituary for Mike Chapman
Mr. John Michael (Mike) Chapman, 74, of Raleigh, North Carolina peacefully passed away after a long battle with primary progressive aphasia on September 19, 2020. He was the son of the late William “Chappy” Chapman and Opal Brogdon Chapman. Mike was born January 4, 1946 in Atlanta, Georgia.
He was married to Glenna Rogers Chapman for 51 years and was blessed with two children.
He was a proud employee of NC state government as a loss control/safety consultant, and a retired volunteer firefighter, serving approximately 40 years at both New Hope Fire Department and Durham Highway Fire Departments in Raleigh. He never met a stranger and was the friendliest person you would ever meet.
His life will forever be cherished in the lives of his children; Michael (Sarah) Chapman of Wake Forest, NC and Amy (Jeff) Braun of Raleigh, NC; his wife, Glenna Chapman of Raleigh, NC; and five grandchildren, Avery, Ethan, Matthew, Lillian, and Simon.
A family celebration of his life will be held at a later date due to the pandemic.
