I saw the news of Michael’s passing. And I would really like to know what happened if at all possible. A pm would will do if that is still possible or just a reply. I like the new site. I didn’t reach out to many, but he was one, and always very helpful. Thank you.

Sadly...I dont think any of us know what happened. One Member kinda accidentally discovered the news in a Rowing Newsletter a few months after he stopped posting. He is missed. 

What is beautiful, lives forever.

After a little, research, I think Michael died of natural causes. I think this is him. Way way to early.

Wow, that article encapsulates Michael to a tee. I was fortunate enough to actually be on the water with Michael & watch him coach rowing. He was amazing, literally he coached every stroke; and yet wasn't overbearing.

It's funny, his mind was amazing & his humor oft misunderstood. I miss our phone conversations, which often had little to do with coaching. I hope he's at peace.
