Last month our world lost a very special soul and friend to many of us when one of our own, Mike Biggar (known on R2R as @Aquanaut) lost his battle to cancer. Many of you knew Mike as the owner of BigR Corals and the one who brought the Walt Disney Tenuis into the hobby.
Mike worked as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist for over 20 years. He was passionate about the wonders of the ocean and became an avid reef keeper. He eventually founded his company, BigR Corals, with the ultimate hope of replenishing our dying reefs with corals that he grew. His biggest goal was to work alongside other reefers and foundations to save the amazing reefs for the future generations.
His signature gift of joy, shown through his funny antics and easy-going demeanor, will never be forgotten. He leaves behind his legacy through the many corals he named, the lives he touched and through his only child, Brady, who will forever know how unique and wonderful his Daddy was. He was loved and supported by many.
In his memory, some of Mike's friends are hosting a memorial fundraiser for Mike's family. At R2R we are honored to host this fundraiser (all of the proceeds will go to Mike's family) as a way of expressing our love and support for a friend we will all miss dearly. We will update the 2nd post in this thread with links to the threads from those joining in the fundraiser with various coral sales. You can also find them at the hashtag: #Memorial4Mike
