My deepest condolences to the family. I first met Mike racing R/C cars with his son Ryan, and later flew helicopters with he and his son Adam. He always had a joke or a smart comment for everyone and he always was willing to lend a hand, whether it was teaching someone new, making improvements to the field, or running an event. He will be dearly missed.

I worked with Mike at Berg Tool. He was always nice & easy to work with. When he left I missed his stories. He definitely will be missed by all of us here at Berg Tool.

Our condolences & prayers go to his family.

Mike will truly be missed his passing is a shock to many of us. It won't be the same at the flying field i will miss him shouting out WTH was that!? Or nice landing to bad you don't do that all the time! Lol. His passion for the hobby was undeniable and it was a pleasure spending time with him.

Mike was my instructor when I began flying R/C helicopters 16 years ago. He introduced me to Helicopter Fun Flys. He introduced me to the Fraser Flying Club. I'll miss our Saturday breakfasts. Flying will still be fun, but a whole lot of the humor will be missing. I've learned a lot from him about how to face adversity, look it in the eye, and crack a joke.
