<p>It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of graphic designer Mike Stoianovici, who died in his sleep on June 22 due to health complications not related to COVID.</p>
<p>Mike began his 47-year career at the College in June 1973 in the grounds maintenance department. He then transitioned to a position in the library. While most recently working as a designer in Creative Services, Mike spent most of his career in the Instructional Television unit, which eventually became MCTV. Mike also was an MC alumnus, having earned an associate's degree prior to graduating with a bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland.</p>
<p>Mike was a Montgomery County native and a graduate of Winston Churchill High School. He enjoyed cooking, photography, and providing a home to many stray cats and dogs over the years. His neighborhood was adjacent to the Rockville Campus. He loved being part of the College and living nearby.</p>
<p>Colleagues will remember his kindhearted spirit. Mike was a good friend to many employees--and he was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needed it.</p>
<p>He is survived by his wife, Joanne Bonfils, sister Alexandra Stoianovici, stepdaughter Nicole Bonfils, and many beloved cousins, nieces, nephews, and in-laws. A private service is being held at the Pumphrey Funeral Home in Rockville on June 29, followed by interment at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Silver Spring at 11:15 a.m. MC colleagues are invited to attend the interment. The family also plans to have a larger memorial service in the future as conditions allow.</p>
