Obituary for Michael Charles Senft

Michael Charles Senft 80, ended his earthly journey and entered eternal life on Sunday, May 3, 2020.

He was an active member of AA since 1986- with the Grace of God and the fellowship of the men and women in AA, he turned his life around.

He loved to plan and to make "To Do Lists." He had a passion for travel and managed to visit all 50 states, DC PR, and the Virgin Islands, as well as eight foreign countries: Korea, Japan, Mexico, Canada, England, France, Italy and the Bahamas.

Michael helped dozens of people over the years in the classes he provided on dealing with loneliness, and discovering one's inner self, and improving one's self esteem.

Devoted and loving husband to his beautiful wife Darlene. "Daddy" over the years, to his 4 legged children: Gidget Girl, his beloved Scooter Boy, his beautiful Abbey Rose and now his adorable Gracie.

Michael spent 40 years in sales and managed to earn $2 million in income in his lifetime. Born and raised in New York City, he took delight in reminiscing that he had been a classmate of both James Caan (Movie Actor) and Colin Powell (Chairman, Joint Chief of Staffs).

He was in a plane over New York on September 11, 2001 at the same time planes were flown into the World Trade Center. He recognized "there but for the Grace of God go I".

He leaves behind many cherished friends and wonderful memories.

Thank you Michael for being a part of our lives. You will be greatly missed.

Military honors will be held at St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church in Simpsonville, SC, Thursday May 7, 2020, at 9:30am. A mass will follow at 10:00am.

An interment will be held at a later date at Dolly Cooper Veterans Cemetery in Anderson, SC.

One of the nicest men I’ve ever met, and a great AA sponsor. Mike will be missed here in the TN tricities AA community where he served others for many years. Condolences to Darlene and the family.

It was our honor to know and have Michael as our friend. We shared the same faith in our Lord; we shared dinners; we shared some sad times; we shared many laughs; but most of all we shared friendship. You will be greatly missed until we meet again. Love on your journey home, Tanny and Ron

Michael was such a great man who loved Darlene and his 4 legged baby, Gracie.
Every morning Michael would walk Gracie, and all of us in the neighborhood got to
see his infectious smile. He always had something good to say, and he never took life for granted.
He will be greatly missed but we know we will see him again.
Danny and Gail Deal
