It is with great shock and sadness that we learned this weekend of the passing of Mike Barwald, lifetime Mandarin resident and citrus expert. Mike and his father, Billy Barwald, owned the Flying Dragon Citrus Nursery on Loretto Rd. on property that had been their family’s homestead for about 100 years. Both Billy and Mike were considered the true experts on north Florida citrus and they planted many a tree in Mandarin, including those in Walter Jones Historical Park.
Sadly, last year, Mike left Mandarin and relocated to central Florida. His unexpected death occurred in April. He is seen here packing up after one of the many Winter Celebrations that he attended. Visitors always loved talking with him about citrus questions and Mandarin history, as Mike was also a Mandarin historian. He will be missed.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
