Mike had a heart as big as Texas. He was a great friend. Liz & I always enjoyed his & Diane's company. He leaves a hole in the world that will be hard to fill. RIP

My God I am in shock! He will always be remembered here on the forum, and his Focks duck soup will serve as his memorial. As I get older these "surprises" seem to affect me more. R.I.P. my friend you and Diane are in my prayers

RIP Mike, you were a friend to many

Very Sad News. Our thoughts and prayers to Diane.

Mike will be missed by all. Mike was my first contact on the Fanatic site and I first met Mike when he invited me to a Ft Worth Cars and Coffee gathering. I instantly liked this man with his large personality. My wife, Judy, felt the same way the first time she met Mike. I believe he had that affect on everyone he met.

Maybe you could post the Focks Cookie recipe here on the site. Every time someone baked or ate a Focks cookie he would be remembered.

I am so sad.. Prayer to the family.

My first meeting with Focks... three months after I bought my SSR.. we drove in his R to a Phoenix tech/day, a night in hotel and them 17 hour ride back home.. that's what I can full exposure... never met a man that enjoyed the SSR community so much. He even sang to me on the trip. Memories of a wonderful guy.

Focks and I met several times over the last 6 or so years. We also PM'd each other a fair amount. He would joke with you at a moments notice about anything. The year we met he came up to me at the Hot Rod Power Tour and said..."is this a kit car (SSR)". I said "really"? He laughed and we became friends after that. That guy really liked a joke for sure. Like him or not he would do anything he could for you at a moments notice. Personally...I'll miss the good natured banter! RIP my friend. VR,

I'm just stunned! I knew he had various health issues but I had no idea how serious I guess. But that's the way Mike was.... always positive... always joking... and never complaining. One of the quickest wits I have ever experienced. He was at the first SSR breakfast I ever attended at Frank's diner and my wife and I enjoyed visiting with he and Diane at their home a couple of times. What a shock to the system this news is. Prayers for Diane and the rest of his family.

Mike was a constant presence on Facebook. Always bringing up some very controversial stuff.
The last time I saw him was at the Flagstaff International. He came to the Awards dinner bare foot. LoL! Great singer also. What a guy! He will be missed by many.

Read the devastating news on FB yesterday. Still shocked! We stayed in contact even after I left the forum. I had the pleasure of meeting him at several rallies over the years and was honored to have him here for Woodward. He gave unselfishly. My heart just breaks for Diane and his family.
Tough news!

In honor of Mike tonight I took a top down cruise in his memory
