RIP Focks

My wife just texted me that Focks had passed away. Evidently it's on FB.


I am totally shock by this as I had no idea anything had been wrong if at all.

Hoping someone has some details so I can make sense of it.


RIP Mr Focks, You'll be missed.

In shock, still hoping it's not true. He was a great guy with a big heart and a great sense if humor. I'm glad I got to hang out with him. RIP Focks.

No way. This cannot be. I remember the 1st time I met and shook his hand. He had the biggest smile I'd ever seen.


I will miss him greatly.


Adios and RIP my friend.

I just saw this on a Facebook.

There was a posting by Machell Embry Oviedo.

Someone said he passed away last night.

I am sure someone will add details as arrangements are made.

Such a shock. I last saw him last year on the Hotrod Power Tour in his Mustang.

Such a shock indeed, just spoke to Michael last week.

We all know how outspoken Michael was, but he would do anything for ANYBODY at anytime. His heart was as big as he was in stature.

He went through many tough times physically and emotionally throughout the years that he seldom spoke about and I was amazed that he was still around to talk about it and he would even try and put a smile on your face as he was telling you a heartbreaking personal story...didn't need to, he just wanted to make you smile.

Oh NO !! That is very sad. Terrible, to read.
Mike (aka FOCKS), is a great guy, an American Patriot and true Fanatic.
He was very very likeable, kind, BIG in stature, but way bigger in heart. He was an incredible singer.
Shocking to read about his passing. Very sad.
Rock on Mike, Rock on...

My deepest condolences to Diane and his family. Mike was one of those larger than life personalities you meet in life that leaves an impression, you will always remember the first time you met him and the last time you spoke with him. I consider myself fortunate to have spent some time with him in this life, he was truly an exceptional human. Rest in peace my friend.

He may have been the only Fanatic to have cookies named after him. My wife made some that he liked so much that he took the whole bag! We named them after him. Every time I eat a Focks cookie from now on I will remember Mike. I will always remember him tumbling down the white sands at Alamagorda! Great guy!

Recipe per request----
Apricot Oatmeal Cookies (Focks' Cookies)
1 cup butter (softened); 1 cup packed light brown sugar; 1/2 cup granulated sugar; 2 large eggs; 1 1/2 cups flour; 1 tsp. soda; 1 tsp. ground cinnamon; 1 tsp. almond extract; 1/2 tsp. salt; 3 cups oats (uncooked); 1 cup chopped dried apricots; 3/4 cup dried cranberries; 3/4 cup coconut; 3/4 cups slivered almonds. Beat butter and sugars until creamy; add eggs, flour, soda, salt, extract, cinnamon until blended. Stir in oats and remaining ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees 14-15 min. until golden.
