A Father’s Wish: Mike Loyer’s Memorial Fund

This weekend, we lost our dear friend and my housemate, Mike Loyer. He passed away early on Saturday morning in the tragic fire on King Street in Burlington Vermont. We are at a loss to describe our sadness.

Mike was a loyal father, son and friend. He was a giant presence with a soft spot for those in need - close friends and strangers alike. He was also hardworking and always willing to lend a hand. Now, we wish to help honor him.

Mike's 8-year-old daughter, Saedi, was the most precious thing to him in his life. She shares his curiosity of the world, many times over. If there was ever anything he would want people to support in his memory, it would be to help Saedi follow her self professed dreams of being, “... a scientist, doctor or inventor.  Or an Olympic swimmer!”

All of the proceeds for this fundraiser will go into an Educational fund managed by Saedi's grandparents, Michael & Sandra Bradshaw to help Saedi work toward fulfilling those dreams.

Rest In Peace, Mike.
