Friend Remembers Father of Four Stabbed to Death in Motorcycle Club

 Friends and coworkers of a man stabbed and killed in front of a motorcycle club after a brawl are remembering the father of four they say always had a bright outlook and smile on his face. 

Michael Raymond Brown, 26, died after the fight outside the Stray Dogs motorcycle club at approximately 2:51 a.m. Saturday in unincorporated El Cajon. The San Diego County Medical Examiner's office ruled his death as a homicide, but will not release an official cause of death. 

Bobby Lewis, Brown's friend and coworker, said Mikey had four boys that often played with his children. 

He worked at Alpine Fence day and night to support his family, Lewis said, since he was 16. 

Brown coached Little League, helped his children with wrestling and went camping with them out in the desert. He had just returned from a romantic getaway in Hawaii with his wife. 

Many considered him a wonderful father.

"Very positive...He seemed kind of invincible, that's why we all had a really hard time believing he lost his life. Just a very good character." 

The 26-year old was stabbed during the fight and was taken to the hospital, but later died. Several other men involved were also treated for non-life threatening injuries.

A GoFundMe to help benefit the family has set up to help Brown's widow and his four boys. To donate, click here.
