MICHAEL JOSEPH MCSWEEN
Peacefully and suddenly on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, Michael, beloved husband of Helen passed away at home at the age of 79 years.
Michael was born and raised in Glace Bay NS. He joined the RCAF in 1957 and served in Cold Lake AB, Germany, Moose Jaw SK and Winnipeg until his retirement in 1982. He later worked at Bristol Aerospace and Sara Riel and retired in 1999.
Left to lovingly remember and cherish his memory are his wife Helen of 56 years; son Stephen (Brenda); daughter Cathy; and grandsons Malcolm, Fergus, and Simon; his sister Dolores as well as cousins, nieces and nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Martha and Joseph MacSween; parents in law Willis and Stella Jaques and brothers-in-law Lorne Jaques and William Crawford.
Michael’s three grandsons brought much joy and laughter into his life and they were so-very special to him.
Mike will be remembered for his love of people, his kindness and quick wit as well as his favourite saying “Life is Great!” A good book was always close by his side. Winters in Puerto Vallarta Mexico will be treasured as will the friends that were made there during the 14 years.
Mike was a member of the Knights of Columbus, a volunteer at Tuesday night bingos at St. Paul the Apostle and a Grace Hospice visitor volunteer.
Cremation has taken place and in compliance with Mike’s wishes no formal service will be held.
Special thanks to Cheryl, Joan and Valerie at the Oakview Adult Day Program for their kindness and care.
For those wishing to honour Mike’s life, in lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society or a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
