Default Remembering - Mike Fuhre Sr. "PopFuhre393"

The 'bell tolls' for yet another in the Off-Road Family. Mike Fuhre Sr. passed away on June 23, 2011.

PLEASE use this thread to comment on Mike Fuhre and to those who knew him, tell us how he impacted your life.

For me PopFuhre393 was known to many of us here on ATM and was an instrumental part of many of the GMB Remembering Those Who Rode Memorial Races.

Many here on ATM had the privilege to know Mike and his sense of humor and to witness his giving heart. Mike is known for his compassion, love for his family and the wisdom that comes from living a good life.

Mike "PopFuhre393" YOU WILL BE REMEMBERED and thank you for being an example to follow in the 'Art of Giving.'

I have often said that "success in life is measured by what those who knew, loved you say about you when you are not around." Mike Fuhre Sr. was a special man and I am priviliged to have know him. I will never forget Mike Fuhre and how he touched the lives of many, his passion and mostly his big and compassionate heart.

Pop, "You did It Right!"

My family and I will keep the Fuhre family in my thougths and prayers as them move forward. Mike Fuhre Sr. was a Special Man.

Sincerely,

Mike Berg
"Motodad393"

My prayers are with Mike Jr. and family. He was a good guy and I'm sorry he's gone. End of suffering is a welcome end but it is still hard on those left behind. Godspeed 'ol Pop.

I'll always remember Pop's smile, the sound of his laugh and his generous, unselfish nature. Pop was a good man with a great sense of humor.

He sure fought for a long time. You'll be remembered forever Pop... always with a smile!

You are right Char. Even when he was not feeling well he always had a smile on his face and was never searching for sympathy.

I first met PopFuhre at GMB and I had an immediate like for the man. I never really got to talk to him in a sit down setting but the conversations we had were always full of laughter. The last time I talked to Pop he was at GMB7 and had to talk through the voice box machine....still smiling while chatting. The mere fact that he came to the GMB event while feeling poorly spoke volumes to me about the man.

We used to joke about his being a firemen and my being a cop and the rivalries that pertain to those professional relationships. I can say with 100% certainty that Pop was one of the very few "Hose Draggers" that I would have liked to get to hang out with.

I'm thankful that his suffering is over but the loss of any loved one is tough. My prayers to the Fuhre family.

I never heard anyone say a negative word about Pop. I know there is a big ol' empty spot in the heart of the ones closest to him.

My family and I attended a Memorial Service this morning for Mike A. Fuhre. It was an incredible tribute to this fine man. The chapel was full of people who paid tribute to Mike.

For me, I remember Mike as a kind man with a huge heart. He was always helping someone do something in deed and/or in word. One of the men referred to Mike as a "Lighthouse" and man is that ever appropriate. Mike was a LIGHT in the lives of many people. His "Light" was made brighter by his phenominal sense of humor. Makes me smile just thinking about it.

I am damn glad I had the pleasure of meeting and knowing Mike Allen Fuhre "Pops" - he is the kind of man that truly made the world a better place.

Rest in Eternal Peace Mike - YOU WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN!

"I know there is a big ol' empty spot in the heart of the ones closest to him."


That, Jedi, there definitely is.

I threw in an old CD of his today while driving...when it hit John Denver's "Country Roads" I just fall apart.

I have never lost someone close to me before, I never knew it could be THIS hard.

Pop's, I'm trying to be strong for you, but it sure is hard, man. I love you more than you could imagine.

Mr. Berg...it was great seeing you and Shannon. Warmed my heart to see old friends. You are one of the best dudes around, I genuinely appreciate your words of wisdom and kindness. You will forever be down in my book as a grade-A man, just like my dad. Thanks again.

My thoughts are with the Fuhre family and especially MxMike393. It is so hard to deal with losing a family member. It's a really sad time but we can all get behind the family and wish the best through this trying time.
