Not sure what to say?

I was informed of Mike's passing by Kelly Jones (past Ballard Little League president, etc) at the Ballard LL Parents Night Out last Friday night (5/19).

Due to medical issues, Low Strike Mike, as he was known in Ballard LL and beyond, probably hadn't umpired in the past 9-10 years. I never umpired with him, but got to know him when I first started in Ballard LL as a manager/coach.

Mike was a character and at some point during the game would get the fans to sing, Take...

I am deeply sorry for your loss. I hope that you can find a measure if peace during this difficult time.

Mike, my darling friend! I'm going to miss you so much. The day after you went into the hospital, an new, really awesome video of the Blue Angels was posted, I bookmarked it so I could find it again, waiting for you to wake up so I could send it to you. I will never see the Blues or Thunderbird fly again without thinking of you.
Give Jim Mack a big hug for me and try not to raise too much hell up there.
I love you dearly!

Sorry for your loss..

Mike, I miss your posts every day! I miss you being silly, and your hippiness! I miss our crazy conversations. Rest easy my kindred spirit.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

I'll miss your puns and references I'm too young to get. Fly high, Birdman.
