Reid Michael "Mike" Saathoff, age 76, passed away surrounded by his loving family on Wednesday, August 14, 2019, at Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas. He was born May 14, 1943, in Cypress, Texas, and was a 1961 graduate of Cy-Fair High School. Mike earned a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Sam Houston State University, and a Master of Education from Texas A&M University.
