It is with a heavy-heart that we announce

Larry Hildreth, life member of Michigan Mushroom Hunters Club passed away suddenly on Sunday, September 30th. He was at Fungus Fest the day before.

Larry was one of the founders of MMHC back in 1981. He also served as President. Larry shared his practical knowledge of wild mushrooms at an uncountable number of mushroom hunts. He was generous in sharing mushrooms that he collected with anyone who had an empty basket. Very simply, Larry was a wonderful person and Michigan Mushroom Hunters Club was privileged to have him as a member, friend and mentor.

His passing is a great loss to MMHC and his family.
