    Broken Pipe: Michael W. Reschke CPCC President

    Michael W. Reschke, President of the Chicagoland Pipe Collectors Club, Doctor of Pipes, and Assistant Show Director of the Chicagoland International Pipe and Cigar Show.

    Mike died today after a battle with lung cancer that began last fall. Mike was the first CPCC President of the Club beginning July 1, 1998, and has been re-elected every year since (except July 1, 2005) including this yearís annual election for a term beginning July 1, 2016. Mike received the Doctor of Pipes Award, in the hobbyist category, at the Chicago Show in 2006. He served as Assistant Show Director from the first Show through this yearís 21st Show. Mike was the epitome of the pipe smoking gentleman. He was a friend to all pipe smokers, and the best friend to many. He devoted many, many hours of his life to the pipe smoking and pipe collecting hobby. The CPCC and the Chicago Show will never be the same without Mike, and his wonderful smile and charming wit.

    We will always miss him.
    The CPCC

    Rest eternal grant to him, O Lord;
    And let light perpetual shine upon him.

    May his soul, and the souls of all the departed,
    through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
