He enjoyed an active retirement golfing, traveling widely, performing for, and serving as President of the Canadian Orpheus Male Choir, volunteering for the Cancer Society, as a member of Probus and was on the board of Community Living Oakville Foundation.
Mike met the love of his life, Ann, in 1959. They married in 1960 and enjoyed 61 years together. He was the proud father of Tim, Jeremy and Penny.
Mike is predeceased by his brother David and survived by his sister Jen. In addition to his wife and children, he is also survived by daughters-in-law Dayna and Paola, grandchildren Dan, Chris, Brendan, Kate, JT, Magda and Catu, nephews and nieces Nick, Jane, Samantha and Nicola and Ann’s sister Sue and her husband David.
