RIP Mike Puhallo

We mourn the loss of Mike Puhallo, popular poet, cowboy, artist, Kamloops Cowboy Festival organizer, and friend to so many

. Mark McMillan, at the British Columbia Cowboy Heritage Society (BCCHS) sent the sad news:

Mike passed away peacefully in his sleep in the wee hours of June 24th. There will be a Celebration of Mike’s Life at 1:00 pm, on Thursday, June 30th, at the Calvary ommunity Church in Kamloops. Bryn Theissen and Pastor Don will officiate. The family is asking that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the BC Cowboy Heritage Society Student Scholarship fund.

Mike, 58, had been battling brain cancer. Find a link for the fund here and more at the BCCHS web site, including a moving article by Mike’s daughter Shar, here.

A June 28, 2011 article here in the Kamloops Daily News comments, “Kamloops has lost a leading voice and an energetic hand close to its heart and western heritage.” Find an obituary here.

Mike was a tireless supporter of cowboy poetry, Western music, and Western heritage. In an announcement in April, Mark McMillan wrote, “Mike Puhallo could be referred to as Mr. Kamloops Cowboy Festival, Mr. BC Cowboy Hall of Fame, and Mr. BC Cowboy
Heritage Society. Mike is one of the founders of all three, and has put a big chunk of his life over the last 15 years towards the betterment of all three, and everything connected to them. He’s put on many Cowboy Concerts over the
years, many of which have been benefit concerts for others….”

A few years ago, Mike sold his part of a ranch shared with his brother so that he could do what he said he always wanted to do: “Just cowboy.” And, he enjoyed doing just that.

Mike was the author of a number of poetry collections, had a solo CD recording and was included in other audio collaborations. He performed at many events and gatherings, and was invited to the Western Folklife Center‘s National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in 2010.

Mike was one of the first poets with work at CowboyPoetry.com, and shared many of his syndicated weekly “Meadow Muffins.” See many poems by Mike Puhallo and more about him and his books and recordings in our feature here.
