This will be gutting to all. What a tragic year.  Mike had a fatal accident at home yesterday. He has passed away.  Wow. Where do you  go with this news. Condolences and mucho hugs  to wife

Dana and I are devastated. Mike was our friend, travel companion and my cigar mentor. He taught me so much and alway made sure to introduce me to everyone and to make sure we were included as Mike was

I had the good fortune to stay with Mike, Kelly and the DeZiel’s in Havana in November, 2016 during my one and only trip there. Mike was extremely welcoming even though I was a Havana newbie.  A great guide.  I fondly remember our efforts every morning to get more coffee from the folks running the house. I’m sure Mike needed it more than me because I don’t think he slept much. His nonstop energy, and continual interest in engaging those around him and enjoying every waking moment was inspiring. He will be missed. —-sam (aka Walt)

I remember this trip to the rum museum for the Havana Maestros tasting in 2016.

So sorry to hear of Mike’s passing.  I only knew him through zoom calls - such a great guy and the heart and soul of this community.  Prayers for his family.

This is news breaks my heart.
Mike was generous, open-hearted, funny, full of life, a charmer.

In the post " no time like the present" he always encouraged us to live in the here and now.

If I were to give Mike a mantra it would be Sharing is caring. 

We need more Mike‘s in our world. 
 

My deepest sympathy to Kelly, his family & friends.

Haven’t logged on in a while, and this is what I log on to.  I’m heartbroken.  Many a Zoom sessions with this man.  Many laughs and great stories.  Was supposed to meet him for dinner just 6 weeks ago that fell through logistically.  I’m in total shock right now.

While I never met Mike in person, I felt like I knew him. We had chats and he inspired me like so many others with his “no time like the present” thread, which I added little to, but admired in spirit. Mike always had kind and encouraging feedback, and of course he had primo cigars that many of us only dream about.

So long brother, Rest In Peace with the knowledge you inspired many brothers and sisters, and rest assured your presence and sense of being will be sorely missed.

I will be smoking my best and tipping a glass of my finest scotch this weekend in your honor. Condolences to your loved ones who are grieving your unexpected departure.

Just unbelievable news. I only knew Mike from his postings and comments. But in everyone of his comments, he exemplified the best of our community. A generous heart and a true love for life. He will be missed.

Incredibly difficult news to digest….

 

Rob, please give Kelly my condolences when next you speak to her. We had never been able to meet in person and I’m sad.

For the world to have lost such a generous soul is indeed tragic.

I did not know Mike beyond a brief zoom meeting and his posts. I admit a huge jealousy for his collection but saw his generosity on the threads. His spirit was obvious in his magnum opus thread.

I already miss his contributions to the forum and wish the deepest of condolences to his family and close friends.

That is just horrible news! Mike was such a stand up guy. Smoked with him a few times over the years and we always had many laughs. So tragic, my thoughts and prayers go out to Kelly and his family. Another great one taken way to soon.

Sad to hear this.  Just came back after a hiatus and my last message in my box was with Mike doing a box pass. Will spark up one of those in regards to this great man.
