Michael D. English, passed away January 26, 2016 while on a diving trip in the Cayman Islands celebrating his 30th wedding anniversary. He was born in Joplin, Missouri November 22, 1961 to Shirley English and the late Bob English.

Mike graduated from Regis University in Colorado Springs, Colorado and Parkwood High School in Joplin, Missouri. He loved anything outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. He was passionate about the Olympic sports movement and fierce in his love and dedication to putting the athlete first. Most importantly he wanted to be the best father, husband, son and brother he could be and a friend to all. He was always there to listen and offer one of his many quotes.

Mike leaves behind his wife Ana English (Hogrefe); daughter Amber and son Joshua; mother Shirley; brother Butch (Kim, Dustin, Megan) English; several aunts and uncles; and all his in-laws, nephews, nieces, cousins and many friends we considered family as well.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the pending Mike English Memorial Foundation with a mission to directly support athletes pursuing their dream or the Mule Deer Foundation. Information regarding the Mike English Memorial Foundation will be available soon.
