Former member Michael Weiskopf was born in Bronx, New York on May 16, 1969 to Lois Stein and the late Norman Weiskopf. He is survived by his younger brother, Daniel Weiskopf. Mike will be dearly missed by the love of his life, Karen, whom he married in 2002 and his two four-legged buddies, Rocky and Harley, their family dogs. Mike spent his life serving the public as a chiropractor, a Deer Park Fire Company firefighter and Cherry Hill EMT before joining the St. Petersburg,FL Police Department in 2003. He was a dedicated and faithful member of the police department, where he spent the majority of his career in the Traffic Section and most recently served as a Traffic Homicide Investigator. Mike fought hard, but lost his battle with Covid-19 on August 27, 2021.
Mike will be remembered as a dedicated 1st responder and a warm and likable professional member of the Deer Park Fire Company and Cherry Hill EMS. Those that knew him were shocked at his passing and wish his wife Karen our sincerest condolences.
