Lawrence Michael “Mike” Robertson, 68, of Kure Beach, NC, passed away at his home July 5, 2022.

He was born May 29, 1954 to the late Joe Henry “Bill” Robertson and Jennie Kure Robertson.

He graduated from Hoggard High School and later attended East Carolina University.

Mike was the proud owner and operator of the Kure Beach Pier for 38 years. He also owned and operated Jack Mackerel’s Island Grill and Hi-Tech Arcade. Mike was a volunteer fireman for 45 years and also participated in the East Coast Got-Em-On Classic King Mackerel Tournament. He was a leader of the Boy Scouts and was also a T-ball coach.  However, one of his most far-reaching accomplishments was the instilling of work ethic in hundreds of high school and college kids who worked for him on the pier during the summers.

Mike was a lifelong member and supporter of Kure Memorial Lutheran Church and the Kure Beach Volunteer Fire Department.

Mike is preceded in death by: his sister, Tony Robertson Banks; and parents, Joe Henry Robertson and Jennie Kure Robertson.

He is survived by: his loving wife, Lisa Robertson of the home; son, Paul Robertson (Kristy), daughter, Kelsey Robertson Morris (Luke); sister, Pat Robertson Rice; uncle, Andrew Emile Kure; grandchildren, Natalie, Raylan, and Hazel; sisters-in-law, Sherry Sunderland and Ronda Meehling; and nieces and nephews, Kure Elizabeth Hern, Blair Van Coutren, Kristen Rice, Ashleigh Spaulding, Jordan Spaulding, and Ryan Meehling.
