    To the family and friends of Mike Ogata: As President of Two Rivers Golf Club, I offer our collective membership’s condolences. We recently had our annual championship and learned of Mike’s passing. Our members thoughts and prayers go to Mike’s loved ones. Mike was an active member of our golf club. As many golfers know, one must have a sense of humor for such an exacting game. Mike had a great sense of humor and a quick smile. We were fortunate to have shared with him some great days of doing something he truly enjoyed. Our hearts go out to you during your time of sorrow.

  • Alan says:

    Dear Michael’s Family, I give my mind and heart in prayer for you at the passing of my Luther Burbank Titan and Two Rivers Golf Club brother. Michael was a jokester of the best order. He brought many smiles to my time with him when we golfed together. He loved his family, I know because he talked about you when we had a few minutes between shots on the golf course. Through all the pain and sorrow I pray that the Lord will be merciful and grant you much grace, peace, and fond memories of Michael. He is gone from this earthly realm, but not forgotten.
