Upon request of his loving wife, Pam, it is with deep regret that I inform the SGF membership of the untimely passing last month of Mike Wheeler. Those of you who knew Mike will attest that he was a fine man, devoted husband, excellent musician and very much of an electronics wiz—to say nothing of his being an active SGF member. Those of us who knew him will miss him greatly, and all will miss the benefit of his technical insight here on the forum.

Mike’s obituary can be viewed here: https://www.snyderfuneralhomes.com/obituary/99171/


Mike’s passing is yet another reminder that life is short—make every day count. May God bless you all.

Respectfully,
Joe Factor

That's sad news. I respected Mike and extracted as much electrical knowledge as I could from him. He was a great guy and always willing to help. RIP Mike. God bless you and your family.

So sorry to hear this. Mike was a great guy and forum member. Mikes's red Dekley S12U was mine and I met him in person when we made the transaction. My condolences to his family and friends.

Sad to hear this. Mike sold me a real good combo amp that I still have.
