We just lost a great man, friend and a credit to the hobby.

Mike Race passed away yesterday. While he only attended a few DIV's, I have known him for years thru many different metal detecting events we have attended. Mike and he wife Sue were well known in the metal detecting world and were the nicest couple and best people you could ever meet. He left a BIG hole in the community. He was always the first to help someone and would give you the shirt off his back in a heart beat. His wife Sue is the same way.
Prayers requested for his speedy ascent into heaven. You will be sorely missed Big guy. Streak!

Kim, Mike Race was one of the nicest guy I ever knew. I feel that a huge hole has appeared in the soul in our hobby.

Mike was nice to most and gave more of himself than anyone I know. I will miss him my fellow Veteran and Friend
