On May 18th 2017, word started circulating that something tragic had happened to our great friend, Mike Darby. We soon found out we had lost Mike to a tragic and senseless crime.

Mike was a unifying force for a greater good. He started his own charity, The Tour De Hope, with fellow Prospector, Keith Steiniger. Mike also always made things fun, no matter who was involved! Mike’s selfless approach, along with his ability to unite his fellow Prospectors to better serve those in need, inspire us all to “Live Like Mike!”
