Michael Plisko, 82

M ichael “Mickey” Plisko, age 82, passed away at his home in Hudson Falls on Tuesday, May 6, 2014.
Mickey was born on Oct. 15, 1931 in Granville, the son of the late William Plisko, Sr. and Susan (Dirga) Plisko.
Mickey owned and ran Plisko Slate Co. in West Pawlet, Vt., for over 50 years. He was an extremely hard worker and astute businessman.
Mickey was an avid hunter and fisherman, as well as trapper. He loved working in his vegetable garden and was very proud of the bounty he produced in it.
Mickey loved to present a gruff exterior, but inside was a heart of gold. This was evidenced in many ways. He was a loving husband, father, brother, and grandfather. He loved children and animals. Throughout the years he was known to give those in need “loans” to help them through a tough time. This earned him the nickname of “Bank of West Pawlet.” He had a wonderful sense of humor.
Mickey was predeceased by his parents, by a daughter Jayne Park, a son James Plisko, and three brothers: Peter, Joseph and Robert. Survivors are his wife Dorothy (Keelan) Plisko, a son Joseph and his wife Linda of Argyle, a daughter Joanne Seeley and her husband Steve of Queensbury, his seven grandchildren: Scott Jones, Rodney Park, Rebecca Park, Nicole Jones, Ryan Seeley, Joseph Plisko, Jr. and Keela Plisko, as well as three great grandchildren: Ava Jones, Brayden Jones, and Paige Seaman. Mickey was survived by two brothers: John and his wife Annelise of Granville, and William, Jr. and his wife Faye of Fort Edward and three sisters: Mary Ellis of Granville, Betty Kilmer of Whitehall and Ann Foster of Hoosick Falls.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, May 9, 2014 at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, 23 Bulkley Ave., Granville, NY at 11 a.m. Burial will follow at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Middle Granville. Friends may call on Thursday, May 9, 2014 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, N.Y.
