Michael Popper of Plainfield

The sad news of the death of Michael Popper reached us all yesterday. Michael was a wonderful, community-minded man, well-known and well-loved by Plainfield residents, especially in his Netherwood Heights neighborhood. Michael and Jenn, outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers, traveled all over the world, most recently to Machu Picchu. One thing Michael always did was to post photos of his and Jenn's hiking shoes as they hiked around the world, and even close to home--the photo at right is at the Watchung Reservation. Below are a couple of photos of Michael from past community cleanups of the Plainfield Public Library's grounds. Jenn was able to survive the horrible accident that took Michael's life, and I extend my prayers and thoughts to her, to their families, and to their extended family here in Plainfield as they express their profound grief.
