"Tahoe Mike" Rhodda Can't Post

Mike's sister Kelly called me today. Mike was found in his tent in a homeless camp. She said a needle was found next to his arm. He had a drug problem for some years.

Harsh.

Mike hung out in Paso for awhile back in the nineties. I remember one skydive, a four way with him, me, Steph and Harry. We turned like 17 points from 10500, and broke off on time too. Best four way skydive I'd ever done.

RIP Mike. I hope you're in a happier place now.

Mike and I went to high school together. I grew up in a house (where my parents still live) across the street from his grandparents. I kind of wish I'd made it to our 20 year reunion two months ago, but I've got no idea if he was there or not.

Mike's obituary

If you knew him, stop by the above and sign the guestbook for his family. They might appreciate hearing from those who shared his passion for the sky.
