R.I.P. Michael Robert Lisle

February 7, 1961 – July 1, 2015
It is with heavy heart that we report the passing of our friend and companion. The Chicago Archaeological Society has lost a stalwart friend as has the discipline. His sudden passing has yet to come to the attention of many of his friends. Long- time members of the CAS look back to the many hours shared with Mike at meetings and his company on Safaris and at other convivial gatherings. His immediate presence exuded a strong sense of comradery and well-being. Mike was a voracious reader whose knowledge of the ancient world spanned continents and regions as easily as his smile could span the breadth of a room. We shall miss him but shall never forget him.
