GSOC Obituary for Mike Durant

The GSOC lost a dear friend and longtime member yesterday.  Mike Durant passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at his home.

I’ve known Mike and Nancy almost the entire time I have been a member of the GSOC.  Nancy was treasurer when I was president many years ago. Her beloved husband, Mike, was one of the most industrious and motivated individuals I have ever known.  No challenge was too small or task too big for him to tackle.

When Mike and Nancy decided to move to Greensboro and build a new home, he got his contractor’s license.  When doing their taxes became more complex, he sat for the CPA exam.  When he wanted to get serious about his favorite avocation, flying, he not only got his pilot’s license - he bought his own airplane.  And most recently, he sat on the advisory council of the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of Greensboro and was a major fundraiser for the new Royce & Jane Reynolds Family Center under construction at 400 W. Whittington Street.  The list goes on.

A native southerner, Mike put the “gentle” in gentleman. He had a heart of gold and mentored and supported the dreams and ambitions of his and Nancy’s many nieces and nephews.

His favorite saying was always, “Life is Good.” And if you were fortunate enough to know Mike and Nancy Durant, life WAS good!!

Arrangements are incomplete but will be handled by Forbis & Dick Funeral Service.

Sincerely Yours,


Linda Pickl

GSOC President
