Mayor Dachisen served with honor, showing a passion for the needs of his town’s residents and working tirelessly on their behalf during two decades as a township councilman, council president, and then as mayor.

He was a very dedicated public servant who loved his hometown and who always put the interests of Rockaway Township residents foremost.

He will be missed by his colleagues at town hall and by residents of the township and the Morris County community, to whom he offered his wisdom, knowledge, and tireless efforts to making Rockaway Township and Morris County a great place to live and raise a family.

The freeholders regret Mike’s passing and offer our condolences to his family. A good friend to our county, he will be missed.
