Michael Robert Deutschman, born May 4, 1945 in Washington, DC, passed away peacefully as the sun rose on Sunday, September 19 with his family by his side. He was 76 years old. Michael was brilliant and graduated from high school at the age of 16. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Maryland and graduated from Columbia University with Honors in Law, where he met the love of his life, Lynn Stemple. The two have been married for 53 years. Michael began his career with Weinberg & Green in Baltimore, Maryland, where he majored in real estate law. In 1970, Michael helped create Diversified Investments, a successful real estate development company in Baltimore. He was a senior partner for 25 years. Michael and Lynn became parents to Scott Benjamin in 1971, then Emily Johanna in 1977, followed by Christopher Brahms in 1982. The family of five was extremely close. In 2001, Michael became COO of Iridium Satellite, LLC, a satellite communications company. In 2007, Michael was nicknamed “Bocky” by the first of his five grandchildren – Hannah Scott and Lucy Will Tamberino and Addison Claire, Eleanor Scott and Brahms Oliver Deutschman – who all adored him. In 2008, Michael and Lynn joined Emily and her husband, Mark Tamberino, Christopher and his wife, Emily (Heseman) Deutschman in Vail, Colorado, a place the Deutschmans had called their second home for almost 30 years. In 2011, Michael became the co-founder and senior advisor of Globokas, an international company that uses satellites to help people do banking in third world countries. Michael will be forever remembered as a man of great integrity, ambition, humor and kindness. “If every man was like you and every life a life like yours, this earth would be God’s paradise.” A memorial service will be held Thursday, September 30 from 1 pm to 4 pm at the Sculpture Barn of the American Visionary Arts Museum, 800 Key Highway, Baltimore, MD 21230.
