Mike… you were fun, adventurous and always brought your A game in what ever you did and in whatever challenges you faced.
I am so sorry for you and your family that you were taken far too soon. I wish them strength, peace and love for now and the years to come.
Mike and I briefly crossed paths in the late 70‘s - he made a lasting impression on me as I’m certain he did with everyone he met.
Cheers to a life well lived Mike!
Sorry for the late response, I only discovered this terrible news last week.
I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my old friend. Mike served as the best man at my wedding with wife Laura 37 years ago. I unfortunately lost contact with Mike a few years ago and while searching to meet up with him only discovered his passing recently. I grew up with Mike playing hockey with him from age 5 to provincial junior A in Richmond Hill. I trust that Mike and I will meet in Heaven in future. Love you “Hammer”.
