Passing of Mike Fiske

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mike Fiske. Many of you have known Mike from his decades of service to the profession. The below announcement comes to us from Paradigm Traffic Systems.

Fiske

Dear Friend,

Paradigm Traffic Systems has lost a member of our Family, and we wanted to share it with you.  Mike Fiske, our beloved past Chairman of Paradigm, passed away on Wednesday night at his home in Fort Worth. 

As you well know, Mike had been in the Transportation and Traffic Industry for many decades, and loved being an Engineer.  Mike was one of the original partners that formed Paradigm Traffic in 1994, and had retired just under two years ago.  But, full-time retirement was not in Mike’s personality.  He formed Endeavor Concepts after leaving Paradigm, and you have most likely seen Mike at a recent TexITE, IMSA, or ITS conference.  Although he was representing a few product lines, we all know that it was truly the long established friendships and interactivity within the Traffic Industry that he didn’t want to walk away from. 

Mike is in heaven with his Maker, and would not want any of his friends or family to be saddened by his passing.  A memorial service will be held at Christ Chapel Bible Church in Fort Worth, Texas, on Tuesday, March 25th, at 11am.  The church address is 3701 Birchman Avenue, Fort Worth, Texas 76107.

Christ Chapel currently has a North India Mission.  In lieu of flowers, you can donate to the mission.  Please mark your donation: In remembrance of Michael N. Fiske. Please keep Mike’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
