New Memorial at the N. Pole ~ Mike Oakley

Recommended Posts

I have never met Mike Oakley, but I just happened to be there when his family was putting up a 5 year memorial of his passing on the memorial pole at the North Pole. I pulled out the good camera and took some photos. I am sharing them on here in hopes that they will get to his family. It is a beautiful memorial.

That's a bad ass plaque. Hopefully it is respected for years to come.

Should have put it up on the memorial hill rather than with all that trash at the North Pole. I don't know why people hang their shoes and old riding gear up there. I understand some pieces are memorials for fallen riders, but the rest is literally just trash. Whoever built that memorial flag did an awesome job. It deserves to be in a much better place.

I was thinking the same thing, but many have never heard of memorial hill. I hope no one messes with it being on the pole. Sadly not everyone is respectful.

They are our neighbors. The boys hung out with my son growing up here in Apple Valley.

Has anyone passed the pictures on?

Yes, we were able to locate the wife and sandchick contacted her. Thanks!

I'd like to know where they got that flag/plaque? Was it a one off custom job or are they readily available somewhere? Thanks for any information that you may be able to provide in acquiring one like it.
