"Dunner" Mike Beatty

Our friend and fellow iRV2 contributor "Dunner" (Mike Beatty) passed away Thursday May 29 in Phoenix. I will miss his voice on the forum.

RIP, Mike. Thanks for all the help you gave me.

RIP, your wit and advice will be greatly missed. Your thread on basement air is a classic.

Mike and I chatted a number of times, I enjoyed his knowledge, humor, and outlook on life. I know he was fighting some health issues recently, at least now he's not in pain. R.I.P.

Mike was one of a kind, "If Dunner can't fix, nobody can". It was good to know him.

Must have been things up in Heaven the 'BIG GUY' needed Mike's help with. His wit and wisdom will be greatly missed. RIP Dunner.

Sorry to hear this news. I know he had been going through some pretty dark times a while ago, but thought he was beating it.

Going to miss him as well.

So long buddy...
