It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. For today I received a call that my Good Friend and fellow Ring member Mike "Wreckless" Williams passed. Mike was an awesome pit builder and like so many of us freely shared his knowledge for just the love of cooker building. I have placed this post in the Cooker section because I believe this is where Mike would want it.
Rest In Piece Brother I will miss our conversations.

Respectfully,

Kevin Miller

I was truly saddened to hear the news this morning of Mike's passing. Mike was a great guy that could always dish out as much crap as he was given and do so with a laugh and a smile. Mike was a hell of a fabricator and he was always willing to share any of his experiences or knowledge with anyone who would ask. We shared some laughs via text message just a few days ago, but I talked to him last about 2 weeks ago, and it is now a conversation that I will cherish. I will miss his laugh, his jokes and the occasional "Go F Yourself" when a joke he would try and pull on me would backfire and I would turn it back on him. Mike was my friend, and a damn good one, I will truly miss him.

Rest In Peach Brother

Man, I am so sorry to hear this. Wreckless was a great inspiration to me while I was building my smoker. I always looked forward to his posts, he was very intelligent, witty and had amazing skills.

God bless you Mike!
