  1. I only learned of Mike’s tragic death recently. Mike was a co-worker in early & mid 1980’s He was a Counselor with P.D.A.P. Los Angeles. He worked with Teens, Young Adults & their Parents & Families that had Substance Abuse Problems. Mike showed ways to these people to turn their lives around. That work still is Trickling down in a Positive way today. Who knows all the good that will come from his giving of himself then and during his time as a Firefighter. I share with Mike the words given me by the PDAP Group Members

    “You give but a little when you give of your possessions.
    It is when you give of yourself that you truly Give”

    In appreciation for giving of yourself, sharing, loving and caring.
    You will be remembered and loved.

  4. Although it’s been 25 years since my dear friend Mike Pizinger died, I still think about him. He was a kind man who was friendly to all who knew him. My biggest regret about Mike, besides his untimely death at only 32, was that he didn’t get a chance to watch his daughter Emily grow up. He would have been so proud of her.
