So very sad to hear this news, Mike was the Best!

I met Mike back in 96 or 97, shortly after getting into Tiki.
Needing to get some art from Hawaii Framed. We went down to his shop to have it done.
He commented on how cool the art was, and the nice Koa wood frames that we had to put it in.
Whenever the pics would slip a bit, he said bring them in, and I'll re-aline them no charge.
Whenever I saw him at Tiki events, he always asked how my parents were, and that I should make them come out more.

I have a bunch of stuff that needs to be framed, and I vow to have it all done at Mike's shop.
It'll just be a bummer to not see him there smiling behind the counter.
But I know the Money will be going to his family.

My deepest sympathies go out to the Adler Family and friends.

Adler family, Red Patti and I are sorry for your loss. Mike was a great human being. We were luck enough to be in at Mojave Oasis for his birthday to help him celebrate his life. It's so sad the community lost one of the good ones.

I'm shocked to hear he passed so soon. I remember seeing him at the first Mojave Oasis and how optimistic he was and just how stoked he was to be with his wife (or his best friend, as he referred to her), his kids, friends, and being able to celebrate his birthday... He was such an awesome happy guy and supporter of the artists; he really will be missed...
My deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to the Adler family and his friends...<3

Wow, this is rough.

Adler was top notch in every sense of the word. Beautiful wife, beautiful kids and a killer shop. The So Cal Tiki community will miss him dearly. The Bamboo Ben Tribe will miss him immensely as a friend and a business associate.

A card or note might be nice to send because I don't believe Karen Adler participates here on TC. Adler's Caring Bridge site provides an address or I'm sure you can send C/O The Picture Show Gallery.

Yuh, this is rough.

Mahalo,

Mrs Boo

The loss of such a dear, sweet man is such a huge blow to the Tiki Community. We will always remember his smile, and the warmth of his spirit. Mike Adler will truly be missed.

From Karen Adler (Mike's wife):

To all of Mike's loyal customers, friends and aquaintences,

I am writing this deeply saddened and with a heavy heart that Mike passed away on November 7th due to stomach cancer. He was my best friend, husband, and father of our two children for a wonderful 32 years. He will be missed by all who have crossed paths with him.

We will be having a memorial service in Seal Beach on December 4 at 11:30 in the morning. It will take place on the grass on the north side of the pier overlooking the ocean. If you would like to share a memory of Mike please feel free to do so. Find out more information at Caringbridge.org enter mikeadler (one word). Thank you all for being such loyal customers but most of all freinds of Mikes. He will be truly missed.

Sincerley,
Karen Adler

***There will be a reception at Don the Beachcomber immediately following the service. Light food will be served along with a no-host bar and music. Come share your experiences with Mike and show your support to a wonderful family!

With all the other activities going on this coming weekend, I thought this should be "bumped" up to remind everyone that a very active member of the Tiki Central community has left us. Mike always threw a good party and made sure everyone was happy. Karen, his wife will continue that tradition at Don the Beachcomber. So come down and celebrate Mike's life with friends and family in the Hidden Village.
