Michael Robert Twomey, age 67, of Newnan passed away on December 29, 2021 at Piedmont Newnan Hospital. Mike, or as he was affectionately known to family as 'Mick' or 'Mickey,' was born on March 29, 1954 to Brigitte (Maurer) King and the late John Edwin Twomey in Salzburg, Austria. He was raised in Wiesbaden and Mainz-Kastel, Germany where he began his life-long exploration and appreciation of various foods, cultures and music.

He attended university on the GI Bill and received a Bachelor's of Science degree in Chemistry. He went on to serve in many capacities as a lead engineer who dealt with the chemistry of plastics and as an executive chemical engineer who worked with large manufacturing corporations. Through different employments in the 1980s, Mike found his way to Newnan where he met Nancy, the love of his life. They built a life together and raised their daughter in this city where he formed so many friendships. Mike was a charismatic and witty man who thoroughly enjoyed life and never met a stranger.
