Robert Michael Nussbaum, 67, passed away Thursday, March 30th, 2017, at his residence.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 1 p.m., Wednesday, April 5th, 2017, at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church, 2203 West Market Street, with Father Eric Kowalski officiating. Interment will follow at Westminster Gardens Cemetery, 3601 Whitehurst Road.

Mike was born January 27th, 1950, in New Rochelle, NY to the late Victor and Mary Corrine Nussbaum. He grew up and resided in Greensboro, NC.

Whether it was his childhood paper route, shoveling snow, or leading Southern Foods, Mike never shied away from hard work.

He was married to his devoted wife Neldy for more than forty years. Even though Neldy is Spanish speaking, Mike only learned two Spanish phrases "hamburguesa con queso" and "cerveza fría, por favor."

Mike and Neldy both shared a love of travel, and their son Patrick, whom they both affectionately called "Chico."

Mike loved golf, whiskey, Carolina basketball, working outside, and family--not necessarily in that order.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, April 4th, 2017, at Hanes Lineberry North Elm Chapel, 515 North Elm Street.

In lieu of flowers, Mike would have liked for you to not sweat the small stuff.
