Mike was such a great partner to work with at the Lions breakfasts and events. He was a hard worker. I know the Lions club will miss him very much. I am glad that he is not suffering now. Thinking of the family in this difficult time. The service that you had for Mike was perfect. It was honoring him well.

Mike was a good friend to Jim and myself, thru the last 15 years he has been a regular visitor to our home and became family to us . My grandson saw him as an uncle. He grew on us, we had many discussions about life and he truly tried to live his life the best he could, we will miss his visits. We will miss the person he was and want the family to know he was loved by many and loved by us.

Michael was a fun, outgoing loving person, just like his dad, Harold. Was so sad and surprised at his passing.

Michael was always fun to be around because of his outgoing and fun personality. For many years he was in charge of the wine booth at the Vancouver Sausage Festival and my wife and I, and many other volunteers, looked forward to working with Mike in the booth. He was a very good friend and he will be missed.
