In Memoriam

Michael A. Sokolowski, CPAGDS partners and staff sadly recognize the one-year anniversary of the passing of our friend and partner, Michael Sokolowski (Sok). He was tragically taken from us on October 28, 2022 after a courageous 11-month battle with brain cancer.

In Mike’s memory, GDS created a charitable foundation, Sok Up the Sun Foundation, with the purpose of providing assistance to the disabled, a client base Sok was very passionate about serving.

As we contemplate the one-year anniversary of our partner’s passing, we honor his legacy by diligently serving our clients with the same passion and love that Sok taught us all. 

Sok was truly one of a kind whose larger-than-life presence is missed by all. Never to be forgotten, his legacy will live on.

Sok’s family, including his wife and five children, hit the ground running with their Miles 4 Mike campaign to raise money for the National Brain Tumor Society culminating in a walk in Boston on October 22, 2023.
