No Good Reason Why
A good friend died a few weeks ago (that's us singing "If I Fell" at his first wedding), and I've been at a loss as to what to write. Mike was extremely successful. He worked as a CPA for Price Waterhouse, he flew jets in the Navy, he patrolled the streets of San Jose as a policeman, he earned an MBA from Harvard Business School, and he played on a Lincoln Glen Little League team that reached the World Series (a team that included Dave Righetti). Most recently he worked for UBS and was ranked as one of the top investment bankers in the United States. More importantly, he was a loyal friend, a devoted husband and father (he leaves behind a wife and three adorable boys), and a tireless advocate for his adopted city of Pasadena. All I can say is that I (and many others) will miss him. He left this life way too soon, and there's no good reason why.
