    I was just reminiscing about my time living in KC in the early 90’s and decided to do some Google Earth and searches for old friends. I met Michael at his electronics shop through a mutual acquaintance. He taught me to skydive in Dec ’93 at Independance Airport off of RD Mize Rd (great name for a road at a skydiving center huh?). I had him and Paige to my house in Valley NE for a canoe trip on the Platte river in 1995 maybe? He was one of the people I have encountered in life that led me to a new place and I will always remember him. I still have his book Pat Works – The art of Freefall Relative Work and a picture of him in freefall hangs in my home office to this day. If anyone can let me know what happened, I would be very grateful. I am sad today because of this finding. James

    Very sad to know Michael is no longer here. He loved Ian very much. Thinking of you Ian.

    I’ve only known Michael for about 3 years but consider him a great friend. We met at the Longview RC flying field when he and Ian were flying one day and have been friends ever since. I was shocked to hear the news.

    I will miss our long conversations, his unselfish help and advice, and especially his view of life.

    He has been through quite a bit during his relatively short life and hope he has finally found peace.

    I know that he truly loves his boy and hope that Ian lands softly. Great kid!

    I knew Michael for a short period of about 10 years and in those years he was a great friend, co-work and fellow musician. My prayers and thoughts go out to the family.

    I meant to say I will say to you, I will always love you

    I miss him more than words could ever express. I am still in shock. He helped me a lot with my computer. We talked for hours on the phone frequently. We met when he was 15 and we nearly got married on two occasions. He was kind, had a big heart. He did so many great things in his life and was very intelligent. As you always said to me Michael I will not say to you: I will always love you…

    Say hello to Pop’s and Hatch for me Mike. I miss you.

    I knew Mike for 20+yrs. I did not know he had passed. It’s a huge shock to me. He was always my friend and a buddy. A computer genius unmatched by anyone I’ve known. He survived a lot of stress. He was an avid professional skydiver in past years, earning all of the certifications one could get. He had beaten addictions, and achieved more than many others ever will. I can’t imagine not having him around to help me with the most complicated computer issues. It was all child’s play to Mike. A big giving heart was his stock and trade.

  10. Michael McComas on May 9, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    I am so sorry to see this news. I talked quite frequently to Michael and shared our love of music and recording. I will say a prayer for Ian and the family.
    I will miss him.

    My prayers go out to Ian, Mrs. Pringle and Mrs. Shaw. Michael loved Ian with all of his heart. I have known Michael most of my life. He will be missed.

    We are very sorry to hear of Michael’s passing. My son is a friend of Ian’s. From my meetings with Michael, I could tell that he was a pleasant, sincere person who cared for Ian very much. Our prayers are with Michael, Ian, Mrs. Shaw and Mrs. Pringle.
