On May 19, 2012, a memorial gathering was held at the Hi Mt. Lookout to celebrate the life and work of our dear friend Mike Tyner. A number of Mike's family members were in attendance that day, and Hi Mt. volunteer John Fitzrandolph sat down with Mike's brother Tim Skeens to ask him a few questions about Mike's life.

John recently found the recording he made of the interview, and thought it might be something Mike's friends would enjoy hearing. Mike's family has given their blessing to share it with the world via this website. Tim has a great speaking voice, and he shares some wonderful and poignant insights.

We hope that Mike's story will continue to inspire and uplift both those who knew him, and those that have only heard of him. Thanks to Tim Skeens, Nancy Tyner, and John Fitzrandolph for making it possible to share this interview.
