Via rwstorm, social media and meetup, I've learned that long-time HAZ member from Alamogordo, "imike" has died from a fall while on a hike. This occurred about Dec 12. On social media he was known as Michal Ja.
From what I can learn it may have been on a hike called Bishop's Cap, although Randy may be able to find out more via his meetup memberships.
Mike had lived in Tucson for a while as well, and knew a lot of hikers there.
I went to his place in Alamogordo one time to buy a vintage Kevlar kayak he had stored under his house. He was a friendly person. Randy and Jim_H both had hiked with him.
Rest in peace, Mike!
