Mike Fitzpatrick : I love ya, man


Last Friday, my father-in-law Mike Fitzpatrick collapsed after his normal morning walk by the beach near his home in Santa Cruz. He suffered a heart attack and died. He was 68. His passing is still a great shock to all of his family and friends. He had a great big heart and was a gregarious individual that seemed to have a friend in every corner of the world and down every city block. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandpa and father-in-law. He would give me a great big hug every time we parted ways and would tell me I love ya, man! with a hearty chuckle. Mike, I love ya, man and I'm going to miss seeing you, but I'll carry your spirit with me always.

[update: Michael Joseph Fitzpatrick's obituary]
