We are sad to report that New Zealand’s Mike Newman has passed away. Mike, who was 68 at the time of his death, was well-known in the city of Palmerston North, where he had been performing as a street juggler for around twenty seven years. He was also a prolific writer and poet.
Mike was the subject of a short documentary / interview two years ago, which you can watch below.
The following four newspaper articles about Mike’s life can do better justice to his memory than what we can write, so you’re encouraged to read them to learn how Mike overcame a tragic accident and brain injury to lead a fulfilling life.
Our condolences go out to his friends and family.
