In a shocking and very tragic twist, "Big Mike" McKenna passed away this week, just a day after his 41st birthday. Mike is known and loved throughout the entertainment world and amongst tattoo enthusiasts. Big Mike was a DJ, party host and all-around fun guy.

He was also a legendary Halloween Haunt monster, beloved by fellow talent as well as fans. The outpouring of love and tribute to this gentle giant (for those unfamiliar with Mike, he stood seven feet tall and weighed in at about 365 pounds) is staggering. The loss is incredible and the various circles of friends and communities that knew Mike are reeling with grief.
