Mickey Lynch, remembered by some long timers, as well as veterans of the old Atari Games, passed away the evening of Dec. 5 after being stuck by a hit and run driver in Fremont, Calif.

The company’s last prexy, Dan Van Elderen, and others are beating the Atarian tom toms to gather Mickey’s former co-workers to a memorial being held Friday (Dec. 15) at Fremont’s Mission San Jose located at 43300 Mission Boulevard. The service begins at 9 a.m.
