December 1, 1922 ~ July 16, 2010
Mike,beloved husband, father, grandad and great-grandad, passed away peacefully in the early hours of July 16, 2010 with his family at his side.
The most important thing to Mike was his family. Next was his love of music. He was very talented, played many instruments, had a beautiful singing voice and shared this passion with everyone. He entertained at many functions, gave joy to folks at nursing and retirement homes. Mike instilled his love of music to his family who joined him entertaining at many events through the years.
Mike was born in Buchanan, Saskatchewan December 1, 1922. At the age of 18 he joined the Canadian Army where he served his country overseas. While in England he met and fell in love with his future wife of 64 years, Violet (VI). They settled in Creston, B.C. where they raised their children Russ, Sally and Judy. On his retirement in 1985 from his job at Creston School District 86 Mike and Vi moved to White Rock to be closer to the children. His involvement in community music groups continued.
He will be forever loved and deeply missed by family and friends in Canada and England.
In keeping with his wishes, a private family service was held July 19, 2010.
Donations in his memory to the Heart & Stroke Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
Singing with the angels and at peace with his parents, sisters and grandson Michael.
