I am sort of at a loss for words. Mike was such a help to me on my first R3 project. I had a lot of respect for him. He will truly be missed. Condolences and prayers for you and your Family. Randy

I've very sorry to hear this. My condolences. angel

A quick story if I could. I didn't have a ton of interaction with Mike via the forum, as I'm not a racer. Over a couple of decades of hanging out here, I certainly read more than a few of his posts. But we had no direct interaction really.

Rolling the clock back a couple of decades, when Gary Davis was still with us, and a core group of Detroit area members would get together socially on a fairly regular basis. One summer, we planned a Detroit area Moparts members get-together at Stony Creek. I was quite excited about it, and got Tom's permission to have this banner made for the event. Food prepared, coolers filled, ready for a great day, and it did nothing but pour down rain overnight and into the morning, with just the occasional break long enough to keep a glimmer of hope alive that we might still have some members show up. With great optimism, I headed to Stony, and staked out our spot.

No one was there. But Mike showed up. It became clear no one else was coming (and didn't). But you know what....Mike stayed there with me for maybe 30 minutes, under an easy up, with sporadic rain, talking Mopars, work, families and hobbies.

Mike could have turned around as soon as he entered the empty parking lot, and never gotten out of his car. Instead he spent a half an hour with a total stranger in the rain. I always appreciated that more than he probably ever knew.

Rest assured, I (Lauren, his wife) have been checking back periodically to see all your posts and reading your memories. I'm so happy he's being remembered with such love and respect.
Thank you again for all of your condolences.

one of the [many] tips and ideas i "stole" from Mr. P. was the deal of cutting header flanges between the tubes and opening up the bolt holes a drill size or two.
this allowed even the thinnest of flanges to seal and have the seal last.
thank you Mr. P. Body ! may you Rest In Peace............

Sorry to hear that he’s no longer with us. He was a great person here on the forum and many would say one of the best persons of you ever met him in person. A huge loss to our community, but glad he was a part of it. Prayers to you and the family on his passing.

My condolences, I spoke with him once at a race. He was a smart man interested in helping others. I hope everyone in your circle can find peace.
