RIP Mike Halloran

Bad news folks, Mike Halloran (@MikeHalloran), a long time member of Eng-Tips and here at SimpliEngineering, passed away June 30, 2021. MIke was a well known Mechanical Engineer who “was revered for his engineering talent, machining, building, woodworking and repair of automobiles.”

Let’s raise our glass to a fellow engineer who has gone on before us. Mike, it may be a long while, but we’ll get to solve more problems together again.


Sad news. We have lost a friend and a valuable contributor.

So who used Mike’s handle yesterday in offering condolences for Gunnars passing???

You mean this one from June 21? That was 9 days before he passed.

You’re correct - did not look at the date. My bad.

Yes, Mike is truly a loss to us and the engineering community. He was a common sense engineer…unfortunately a passing attribute these days.

I inquired a few months back as to how he was doing but didn’t get a response.

I seem to recall his mentioning a bout with the big C. Sad to hear of his family’s (and our community’s) loss, he will be missed. Oh, and thanks for posting the link, Latex.

Well, really sorry to hear that. I so much enjoyed his posts and could only be in awe of all the stuff he knew.
