    Default Mike Becker - our community has lost a great man

    I am stunned to have just heard this news that Topsail Angler went home to be with the Lord yesterday. Mike was a strong man of faith and a great friend. We met here on NCangler.com over 11 years ago and became great friends. Mike served our online community as a moderator for several years.

    Mike and I fished together just a few weeks ago. I don't know what to say. I know God has a plan for us all but this one has jarred me. Lord please be with Pat and the family. Mike I miss you already buddy but I'll see you again by God's grace.

    Here is a photo of one of first old drum fishing trips with Mike back in 2010.

    I was saddened to hear of this news. Though I never met Mike, I feel like I knew him and considered him a friend. He was a valuable asset to our online community, a great leader of his church and community, and above all else a good person. His family is in my prayers, and he will be missed.

    Shared a couple meals.
    Shared one fishing trip.
    Shared his being tickled to take a flounder I caught to give to his mom.
    Shared him introducing me to shrimp & jack cheese omelets (never waste good bait!)
    Shared a million behind-the-scenes conversations about NCangler.com.
    I only saw the tip of the iceberg, compared to the man he was to his family, his church, his community and his mission around the world.

    Well done Mike.

    I was crawling through some of the older site photo albums today and came across all of these (and many, many more) of Mike...

    So sorry to hear about Mike. I think Mike was the first person to welcome me to the board many moons ago. He never hesitated to happily share advice with my teenage self and as trigger said was a huge asset to this site.

    I know that Topsail_Angler (Mike), Fojoloy (Forrest), PapaDave (David), and Lefty (Kevin) are sitting on a dock somewhere reminiscing on good fishing stories and enjoying their reward.
