POCHODAJ, Mike – Passed away peacefully, on Friday, July 30th, 2021 at GNGH, dreaming of his next holiday. Cherished husband and devoted travel casino buddy of Grace for 23 years. Loving step-dad to Tyler. Dear brother of Walter (Connie) and Steve. Predeceased by his loving brothers Paul (Donna) and Billy (Madonna), and his parents Mykola and Maria. Mike will be fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews and friends. Mike was never one to hesitate to help anyone, be it big or small, he could be counted on. Like the time he insisted on piling seven teenage girls into his corvette and driving them to a Metallica concert at the CNE; no way would he let them walk!
Mike had many years enjoying travelling, cruising and going to the movies. He enjoyed the lights of any casino; known as the 40cent man, who seemed to hit big, playing with so little.
Grace extends her heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Mattia, Emergency Department nursing staff, Paramedics, Stroke Unit at GNGH for their compassion and empathy in treating Mike with dignity on the final leg of his life’s journey.
As per Mike’s request, cremation and a private celebration of his life will be held. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Memories, photos and condolences may be shared at www.morseandson.com
“Honey, let everyone know, when I go, not to be sad because I had a great life and did all that I wanted to do, and then some. Tell everyone that for me.”
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Michael Pochodaj Friday July 30th 2021..
