Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Mike de Beer, 1973-2006

Posted on: August 12, 2006

In other sad news today, I just learned that a wonderful guy I went to college with and who I worked with in a number of campus organizations died suddenly last week from a heart attack. Mike de Beer was an amazing guy, always working to fight social injustice somewhere in the world. There are postings about him and his work here and here and he leaves a large hole in the world.

I have a framed photo of some of my Amherst friends from 1997 — he’s there in the center back row, always the tallest in any photo.
