Throughout Mike’s life journey, he built strong relationships with a vast group of friends who became his family. The impact he made on the people he touched was keenly felt during his final weeks at Hospice, where many friendships and relationships were renewed & celebrated, and the bonds of friendship strengthened with the many friends who were his constants in life.

During his battle with cancer Mike’s dear friend Dory Cameron, who he adored; together with a group of close friends, made sure that Mike received the care that he needed and that he was surrounded with people who cared for him.

He will be missed by all who knew him, and his beloved musical community will be a little quieter today for the loss of one of their most passionate drummers.
