My heartfelt prayers are lifted up for his family and friends. I wish I had the opportunity to have known him as well as many of you. I did meet him at the Maggie Valley 2014 rally. I remember he was a big guy with the most stunning patriotic SSR I had ever seen!

Rest in peace our Fanatic Brother and know that you were loved by many!!

Oh my! So sad. Prayers to his family!! My best memory of Focks is the time a bunch of us Texans met up at the Gas Monkey Grill in Dallas. Focks and I were taking turns "harassing" the wait staff. We had a blast that day. RIP big guy!

OH MY GOSH!! I just saw this!

I met Focks at Texas International Rally, TEN years ago.

Learned a lot from him, also learned not to play golf with him on HIS course.

Saw him last at Tech Day in Texas.

He will truly be missed.

Focks was an Anchor of well being!!

Focks communicated with me a few times ,never met him personally,however, I always enjoyed his comments and shared much of his great view of life and certainly his car passion! God bless his equally wonderful wife and family, our deepest sincere condolences from Hal & Toni, HALSSSR,he will be missed for sure here, but most likely has a grand assembly and glorious welcome home awaiting him, by friends and relatives that have gone on before him! RIP FOCKS! Amen.

Mike was larger than life... there are so many stories I could talk about but there are two I would like to share. One was the time when he got me good when he asked me if I wanted to hear his new air horn. Mike told me to stand just behind the driver side rear wheel. I thought sure why not (heck the horn must be near the front of the vehicle so it will be safe to stand there) he then told me to listen up very carefully and all of a sudden he hit the horn and then this GOD AWFULLY SUPER LOUD SCREAMING air horn "BLAST" that nearly knocked me off my feet and onto the ground. LOL there was another time was when we were walking down Woodward Ave. and Mike stops to grab a free power drink and takes the whole drink and swallows it all down in one large gulp! Then all of a sudden he belted out this deathly scream that scared the living crap out of me!!!

I will miss you big guy!!!

Marc... I remember that too! after his gulp, he blurted out something like "My god, what the hell is in that stuff?" Poor girl behind the table had a look of shock like you wouldn't believe. But that was Mike... Thanks for the memory.
