Michael J. Plant
September 25, 1948 - May 5, 2019
Mike Plant was the guy we expected to outlive us all. He was an Iron Man, a lifelong athlete, a voracious writer, a loyal friend, a devoted husband, an incredible father. The list is endless. He lived his life with insatiable gusto and inspired others to do the same.
On May 5th, 2019, with his family by his side, Mike moved onto his next big adventure. He left us too soon and will be deeply missed, but he left his mark on the world in so many ways. Mike’s love for his family, work, friends, and passions will sustain his memory for years to come.
In honor of Mike, we’ve established this memorial fund for a cause that held such a huge piece of his heart: The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. Mike was involved in the Foundation for over a decade, and served as Board President for the San Diego chapter. Mike himself lived with ulcerative colitis for over four decades, and his dedication to the Foundation came from a drive to improve the lives of others with IBD.
Donations to his memorial will help fund the critical research, disease education, and awareness efforts of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
You ran one hell of a race, Dad.
- Cathy, Kendall, and McKenna Plant
