- Mike Johnson -
In Memory of Mike Johnson It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one of our own, Mike Johnson. Mike passed on Saturday morning, April 12th, 2014 while recovering from surgery he had earlier in the week. He turned 69 last month. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to his wife (Debbie), son, family and friends.
Mike joined the San Diego Pool League in the early 1990s. It is said Mike’s amazing presence propelled The Capri team of Spring 1995 into its first ever 1st Place League Team Championship. Mike then went on to win a 1st Place for the Clemens Captains Classic XVI Tournament and placed many times in Open Individuals. Just last season, Mike represented San Diego at West Coast Challenge Long Beach as the 4th Place seed for Open Individuals. Mike’s teammates (Redwing 2) describe him as a supreme example of a consummate player. He will be remembered for his love of old school music, generosity, kindness, and for making the game fun.
Celebration preparations are in the works for next weekend, April 19-20, both in Oceanside and San Diego. More information to follow. We will miss you!
