He's in the Coast Guard now. Tom, that is. 
From the ANchorage Daily news:
Bitzer grew up in Sacramento and came to Alaska in 1975 to work, splitting his 
time between California and Alaska until the couple moved up for good in 
1982, Karen Bitzer said. 
For years they owned a cabin resort in the Denali area. Bitzer worked as the 
chief of appeals for the state Oil and Gas Division, his wife said. He also 
had a real estate license. He retired at 50, then worked two years as a 
scouting official in South Anchorage and helped it grow, Haines said.
The Bitzers own a home in Truckee and were preparing to move there to be 
closer to their sons. "Now I don't know what we're going to do," she said.
Shibe had four teenage sons including the twins with him at Jamboree. 
But to the troops he mentored, it was like he had 20 boys. "He took in all of 
us," said Regan Pfleiger, 18.
Shibe's family extended beyond Kris, his wife of 23 years, and their boys to a 
close-knit community built around the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church.
He was a Dimond High graduate who had worked for ACS since 1983. He most 
recently was a statewide dispatch foreman.
Pfleiger, best friends with Shibe's son Neil, remembers how cautious Mike 
Shibe was when it come to electricity. He always warned the boys not to dig 
in the yard until they knew where the power lines were, Pfleiger said.
"Mike worked with power lines for as long as I know,'' Pfleiger said. "He's 
always been so safe."
