PASS Mourns Loss

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Mike Fanfalone. Mike was a former PASS President and founding member of PASS.

As most of you know, Mike underwent emergency surgery a little more than a month ago for a ruptured intestine, caused by Crohn’s disease. Mike battled Crohn’s for many years before succumbing to the effects of the disease at 5:27 p.m. yesterday.

Service arrangements are pending and will be passed on when they are known. Condolences may be sent to Mike’s daughter Rachel at:

Rachel Fanfalone
1776 Lang Drive
Crofton, MD 21114-2145

Mike will be deeply missed by all who knew him. His leadership and guidance have helped many of us over the years, and I can say with certainty that I am a better person for having known and worked with Mike. Please keep Mike’s family and close friends in your thoughts and prayers as they deal with this tremendous loss.


Tom Brantley
PASS President
