Mike was a gentle soul, and we shared the experience of watching our sons play disc golf as doubles partners at 2007 Am World Championships in Milwaukee.
Mike also served as Membership Director for Pittsburgh Flying Disc Society and enjoyed playing the game with friends. See you on the tee pad, Michael Hoeg!
