It is with deepest sympathy that I report the passing of Merwin (Mike) Wittum this past weekend from a massive stroke. I spoke to Kristy, his wife, and she is doing OK. She said Merwin will be cremated. There will not be a funeral, however, a celebration of life will be planned for sometime this summer.

For those of you who didn’t know Mike, he was one of the original TPTKD black belts. He started Taekwondo in 1974 and supported our organization for decades. He will be greatly missed.
