RIP. I wish I could have thanked Mike again for all of his help that he gave to me. I was lucky to have known him and call him a friend.

Sorry to hear the news of Mike Reedy passing away. He was a true legend in this hobby and he will be missed by all.

I spent many hours picking his brain (back in the day) about motors and just the industry itself. He taught me a great deal and it was fun just to talk to him.

Rest In Piece Mike Reedy, you will be missed.

July 31, 2000 early in the morning. I show up for my first day of work at AE. Who unlocks the door to let me in? Mike Reedy. And I'm thinking holy crap it's the legendary Mike Reedy opening the door for me. I didn't know whether to say 'good morning' or try to get an autograph. Nicest guy in the RC industry. We're gonna miss him. May he rest in peace.

I was so lucky to spend tons of time with Mike when I was the Team Manager for Team Losi. Even though we were on opposite sides of the track, Mike was always great to hang with, share life stories and just flat out talk racing. He will be missed.
Rest In Peace Mike

I remember reading about Mike Reedy back in the 90s through RCCA, tried the legendary "Mr." series of off road motors in my buggies, and have never been happier

RIP dear Sir...thank you...

To Mike's family, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Brian and I will never forget all the fun we had when Brian ran for Mike and Team Associated way back in the 90's. Mike was a great ambassador to this hobby he so dearly enjoyed. Rest in pease, Mike....from Brian and Dave Berry.
