Michael died unexpectedly yesterday while playing music with his friends. He taught the 5 rites at the Haven and was the organizer of several musical groups in Boquete. Rest In Peace Michael.

A year ago I helped Michael produce a yoga video called "The Power of 9",

which was his own idea, to expand on the well-known 5 Tibetan Rites.

This video was used by Michael with a number of his students

and I would now like to share it with our entire community.

Michael touched many people with his love of life.

Really sad news. Michael was very much involved in our community, both for health/physical fitness and musical entertainment reasons, and truly was a nice guy. Marcelyn and I had taken stretching exercise classes with Michael at The Haven, and also were working with him on preparing some high end multimedia to help document and market his musical skills.

Following John's lead above, below are some video recordings taken on September 27th at Boulder 54. It was a rainy evening, there was the ambient noise of recording in a functioning restaurant, and the audio was based only on the camera microphones, so not good quality. These videos were test runs only, and not intended to be made available to the public. However, under the circumstances it seems appropriate to publish these so as to share Michael's talents. We cannot confirm, but believe that these likely are the last videos taken of Michael prior to his passing because a few days after these recordings were made Michael traveled to the USA for about a week; we were on the same plane with him. That was the last time we saw Michael, on the plane from David to Tocumen on October 2nd. We do not think he would object to these postings. Along that line, we were working with him to produce higher quality multimedia recordings (using studio quality audio kit) in November and December.

Again, really sad news for our friend. RIP. Posting here in your memory.

SHOCKED. I had a conversation with him the same day he passed.

We were so taken aback, and saddened to hear this news. Michael taught a stretching class at The Haven.

I learned how to get up from a fallen position without needing a wall or piece of furniture. Very important at our age.

Is there a Memorial for him?

I went to high school in Tampa, FL with Mike.  I think he was the nicest and most well-liked guy of the whole class of 100. We were friends.  So sad.
