It is with deep sadness than I announce to the Mopar community the death of one of my best friends, Mike Buhrman AKA Mountain Man of Thurmont, MD.

Mike passed away Saturday April 4th, shortly after his 65th birthday of congestive heart failure (not COVID 19 related)

His wife Judy has asked that in lieu of flowers and gifts that you please donate to your favorite charity at this time. We are unable to have a service due to the current state lockdown but a memorial will be planned later on after the pandemic subsides.

I am still looking for pictures of Mike to post (and Judy has promised some as well) but I thought it would be nice to open this post up as a memorial for your comments, stories and pictures.

Mike was loved by everybody and he will be sorely missed.

Thanks for reading!
Greg Purcell

My Heart Felt Wishes Go Out. Remember them both from over the years at Carlisle & Englishtown Swaps. Two of the nicest people to have met & talked too. Always had a good laugh with them.

I just stumbled on to this thread. Thank you Greg for posting. I am in total disbelief right now. Mike and his wife Judy, just the absolute best. I was introduced to Mike when I was 18, that year he did all of the machine work on my first small block build. He was incredibly knowledgeable and knew what worked and kept me from buying all the newest shiny gimmicks out at the time as well. Really fun to watch him wheel his dart down the track. Rest in peace Mike, you will be greatly missed.

Wow! I am shocked to hear this too. Mike was a great guy, he built the 440 I have in my 65 coronet. That was in 1998 or so. It’s still in the car and going strong. My good friend Doc webby introduced me to mike. To Anyone that knows doc he’s still around but lost most of his vision, I’ve been helping him put his valiant together. RIP Mike

It's sad to hear of his passing. It seems like to much of it this year. frown Mike's friends and family are in my thoughts.
