Michael E. Cummings, 73, of West Portsmouth, died Tuesday evening with his family by his bedside at the SOMC Hospice Center. Born on April 23, 1951, in Portsmouth, he was a son of the late Lloyd and Lilly Flake Cummings and was a self-employed flooring contractor. 

Mike enjoyed watching his Ohio State Buckeyes, Cleveland Browns and those westerns that everyone watches. He loved riding his John Deere tractor, keeping his lawn spotless and flying his American flag.

Also preceding him in death were his second wife, Sandra Lou Cummings, three brothers, Willard, Jerry and Terry and five sisters, Olive Veach, Lorrain Stonerock, Leona Snyder, Nora Riggs and Betty Coldiron.

And we can’t forget his beloved Shih Tzu, Sam, who went everywhere with him and his companion Terri Kay Buckle Chandler.
