This is very sad.

I met Mike about two years ago when he came to Florida to visit his dad, Pat Buzzeo. Pat is a regular flyer at the field where I fly my planes. Pat must be in his early 90's. I can't imagine the pain he feels to have lost his son.

Sorry Pat. I know how proud you are of your son.

One of the best because he almost always dug something positive out of everything.

While never personally meeting, many of us could rely on Mike for honest help and encouragement.... how often we take everything for granted. He was a huge part of the RCU family and is already missed by so many. God bless his family and as always, and for one last time, "Thank you for your honest opinions, humor and valuable expertise". You have been our friend.....

Wow what a shock, I have never met Mike but his posts always where helpful and kept everything on
an even keel when it got silly. He will be really missed on RCU by everyone.
My condolences to his family and friends, and to all on RCU. Definitely too young to be taken from
us.
Jim.

Just read about the sad news of Mike going to a better world.

Condolences to his family and multitude of friends.

I can understand having lost my only son in March 2010.
My son was just 60 about the same age as Mike.

RIP Mike.

Having known Mike for many years, I considered him a friend; My heart breaks for his wife and family.

Mike was an amazing presence on RCU, always willing to lend a hand, eager to help the next new member learn the basics of radio control airplanes, and one of the most reliable and professional product reviewers in R/C. It truly was a pleasure to know Mike over the years.

I (as Marc already mentioned) relied on him a great deal and he always delivered above and beyond. He was my go to guy when I was in a pinch, and he became the guy everyone knew would get the job done when time was of the essence and/or the product review was of particular importance. Mike was very much loved and appreciated by many who probably never even met him face to face, and I know he will be missed but also remembered for his contributions to R/C.

His legacy in R/C is forever archived on RCU, and for that I am thankful.

What can I say that hasn't already been said so well by others. Mike will certainly be missed by all of us. I hope his family will find a little comfort knowing that so many people regarded him as a friend.

Mike,
May you always have blue skies and light winds. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

David

Oh man. This is horrible, he seemed like a genuine and nice guy, he was too young. God bless his family.
Hearing something like this makes you realize to cherish even your worst days, every day is a gift, the next is not promised to you.

Shocking news to say the least. I'll certainly miss him and never forget him.... He was one of the positive members to the new (and established) members of RCU, sadly another good man leaves us. []
