So very sorry for your loss. This reminds me to make every encounter I have with someone on the mountain a positive one. Sounds like Mike lived that.

John, Ben, and the rest of Mike's family and friends: I am so sorry for your loss. I have never met Mike, but I wish I had. I love the photo of him on the summit of Humboldt Peak. In his smile and fist pump I can see his true love for climbing mountains, and his joy in living life to its fullest. I pray that you will all find comfort and strength in each other, and that God will give you peace as you grieve the tragic loss of your brother/father/friend.

Man oh man, this is brutal... Thoughts and prayers to Mike's friends and family. May he rest in peace. This has been an absolutely devastating season for our community. Totally sucks. Peace.

Many condolences to all who knew and loved him. It was with a heavy heart that from the summit of Kit Carson I watched the helicopter take off from the valley floor yesterday morning. It is another reminder to never take life for granted and to express your love daily. Rest in peace.

I am so sorry. I was on KC/Challenger on Sunday when the SAR chopper was searching. It sounds silly, but when you are on the mountain you feel a certain kinship with someone in danger.

RIP, Mike.
