 I care.  He signed my first USPSA card.  How did he die?

I didn't know a lick about him other than he was a USPSA prez from the past, but cancer knocking a decent guy out isn't great news.

At a long-ago Texas Open I was at the wailing wall looking at the stage result printouts (that was a thing, kids ask your parents) and saw my lowly wanna-B self was ahead of MV on a stage. I pointed this out to my girlfriend who said "Who's Mike Voigt?". Unbeknownst to me, he was standing about 2 steps behind us and promptly said "Ah, that guy sucks".

Good guy, he treated everyone with respect, even had time for a nobody like me and a pretty smart businessman. He did a good job for USPSA. Fucking cancer. A shitty way to go. RIP
