Lakewood Township officials are today mourning the sudden passing of longtime building inspector Mike Saccomano.
“Together with the Township Committee, with a heavy heart, we are sad to announce the sudden passing of Michael Saccomanno, the head of our Inspections Department. As funeral information comes available, we will pass it along. Please keep Mike’s family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult tim,” the Lakewood Police Department said in a statement.
“Mike was a beloved fixture in the Lakewood Township. Tough as it may sound, he remained friends with everyone even as he pushed for higher standards,” the Central Jersey Association of Builders said. “Even though we are a group of relatively small contractors, he always made the time to talk to us and take us seriously. We are so sad as we mourn the loss of our dear friend Mike. May he rest in peace.”
“So saddened to hear of the loss of our dear friend Mike Saccomanno. He had a special place in his heart for the kids at the Center and wanted them in the best building possible. His legacy will live on,” a statement from the Special Children’s Center reads.
