    I never met or talked to the man but I appreciate what he helped build. Rest in peace Mike.

    Sorry to hear this guys. Hopefully all his friends, family and coworkers will remember him for who he was and what he accomplished through his years.

    I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Ditch Medicine class I took. We were all standing around that night when he strolled up the driveway playing the role of a drunk guy who’s buddy was hurt in the woods. He played that role to a T and had everyone convinced it was the real deal. For you guys not from the south, it isn’t out of the norm to have a random guy stroll out of the woods drunk at night. Not everyone that was there was from the south, so I seen some fear in some peoples eyes that night.

    Rest easy Mike Perrin, until we meet again…

    Dang man, so sad. I wasn't aware that he was even ill. Prayers headed out.

    My funniest Mike moment is when I designed an ESEE Kephart, unaware that Patrick had one in the works. He thought I had some inside knowledge, but it was purely coincidence. He was pissed, haha. Jeff had to straighten him out. :D

    sincere condolences to all his family and friends who are mourning his passage.

    way back in the dark ages, before the ESEE training compound was built, Jeff had an ESEE gathering (this is also where I met Ethan Becker).
    I got there right after sunrise, and got a tour of the place (including the beginnings of Jeff's house he had started building recently)
    at one point, we were sitting in the office, jeff and co were eating lunch and there were 2 hotdogs left.
    Jeff asked me if i wanted them, since he had made them for Mike - who wasn't there yet.
    I was about halfway through the first one when Mike walked in and said "well, where's mine?"
    Jeff pointed at me, and Mike gave me that look of his, took the second one off my plate and ate it.

    we all laughed.

    I'm pretty sure he didn't remember it, but it's stuck with me for years.
    The only other times I saw him were at Blade show, and he was busy, so I never had a chance to get to know him very well.

    Condolences. I have no doubt there is an unfillable void left in the esee family.
