For over 50 years the friendly voice of Mike Cowart WA5CMI was heard coast to coast. Mike was a friend to all, and one of amateur radio's true ambassadors. Grant Laughlin W5XJ was a close friend and had this to say...

Truly one of the best friends a man could have. Mike was always happy to share his knowledge and experience with those needing to learn. Always ready to help and genuinely interested in how you were doing. Mike was a great guy and he will be missed by the many he mentored, helped and befriended over the years. He loved his family and his friends and it showed in how he acted and in what he did. Mike was one of the best men I had the privilege to know. Mike was the consummate ham radio operator, going long out of his way to support, foster and defend the AM mode, and hamming in general, for all to enjoy.

Thank you Grant. Those of us who had the pleasure of working him and those of us who called him "Friend" could not have said it better. Rest in peace Mike and Thank you for your friendship.
