For those that knew him, Mike Lomax (user mikelom) passed away yesterday after a year-long battle with cancer. It was looking good for him, hence his current profile comments, but unfortunately things turned for the worse over the past few days.

Mike had been active on this site for many years and he was a good friend. Many of you will have played him. R.I.P. Mike.

This is hard to digest. I was in discussion with him only a few days ago about collaborating over some work. This is such a shock. My thoughts go out to his wife and family and all his friends wherever they are.

I was under the impression that he was recovering, but as is so often the way with these horrible diseases, they can be resurgent.

Mike was a very smart guy and also a strong chess player with a sharp SoH often expressed in the forums. He once sent me a draft of a kids book he had written - talented too! A big loss to his widow and indeed this site.

A fun title

Mike and I hadn't played a game unfortunately, but I liked his gentle voice in the forum. I remember Mike expressing his sentiments and deep love for his wife. My prayers go out to mike's family.

I always valued his posts, and am sad that there will be no more of them.

Heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

"Hi Mike's sister here, Julie. We cannot know what illness Mike had- he claimed he had cancer, was thousands of miles away from family, and did not want to worry anyone. However his death was suicide by taking too many colchicine tablets and drinking whiskey after battling an alcohol addiction for thirty years. very very sad, and we are all devastated, sorry but I want the truth out there. If anyone needs to get in touch I am on fb, and also my email is juxamoldrof@gmail.com. I dearly loved my little brother and am so shocked, hope I am not upsetting anyone, but I believe in telling the truth."
