This is a very late blog post on the death of longtime mountain reporter, Mike Neufeld. His service, held in the beautiful San Moritz Lodge on Sunday, February 12, and I can’t help but think that Mike, a longtime mountain reporter, would have been smiling a lot at the number of people who showed up to remember him.
I don’t believe that in all my days I have ever seen such a “turnout” for a funeral service. Throughout the years Mike was a mountain reporter and he had the knack of getting news as soon as possible and as accurately as possible. He was so well thought of which showed because so many and the (probably) 200 people or more who. Those who attended the service was a “who’s who of the mountains” as well as family and friends.
