Michael Patrick Chiola, 59, of Summerville, SC passed away late Friday April 27, 2012 surrounded by his family and in the arms of his wife and children. He battled frontal lobe dementia for the past 8-10 years.
After Michael received his Electrical Engineering and Computer Science degree in 1974 from Clemson University, he went on to work for Dupont, Exxon, Alumax, Alcoa, and our very own Charleston County.
Michael was characterized by his ability to fix anything and his love for the water. His favorite activities involved do-it-yourself projects, boating with his family, skiing, and fishing.
Michael is survived by his wife, Deborah Chiola; his daughter, Ashley, and her husband, Justin Ergler; his son, Alexander Chiola; his parents, Ark and Ruth Chiola; his siblings - John Chiola, Patty Watson, and Kathy Raymond - and a multitude of nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will take place 6-8 weeks from now at Carolina Memorial to commemorate Michaelís wonderful life. Please contact Carolina Memorial - 7113 Rivers Avenue, North Charleston, SC 29406 - or the family for more information.
