I remember when I first met Mike, I was at a Legion convention and it was my very first one. I was so nervous and didn't know too many people. He instantly made me feel at ease and made me laugh so hard I almost spit out my water. I will miss you my friend. God Speed.-David McIntyre
We met Mike recently at the District "E" convention and so admired his dedication to Legion and his true kindness to us.
Rest In Peace, dear Mike.
My deepest condolences to Mike's family and friends.-Paul Howe, Branch 68, Penetang

Mike was always such a ray of sunshine. Our memories are of a fun good hearted man. We spent the morning of the Kelly Shires pancake breakfast with him at Bass Lake. His generous spirit made the work easy. He will be missed. We will carry his memory in our hearts.-Garry and Mary Ann Beaudin
I am deeply saddened to hear of Mike's passing. I have many fond childhood memories of Mike, Johnny, JoAnn and I at the trailer, riding in the Dune Buggy, wild and free while his dad (my Grandpa) drove us along the hilly and winding dirt roads. We swam, we played, we made many great memories... We lost touch for a while but reconnected recently after his father (my Grandfather's) passing. I am so glad we did, I missed his happy fun loving nature. I wish we had more time to connect again on this earth. You will be missed. Rest in Peace Mikey. Until we meet again xo

Mike was a valued member of the Georgian Bay Winds (clarinet) and brought a real sparkle to the band, keeping many of us in a state of quiet hilarity. We will all miss him greatly.-Steven Duff
Mike was such a big personality and such a great teaser. He was my husband's favourite part about our Family Christmases. One year, my mom had decorated our bathroom with a bunch of Santa figurines. Mike had turned them all around so they wouldn't see him pee (and to tick off my mom, his cousin). We all still laugh about this every year. You will be missed cousin Mike.-Deanna

I knew Mike from shoppers... my mom and I were frequent shoppers there so got to know him as a friendly cashier. Such a nice guy to just an acquaintance (probably didn’t even know my name). Rest In Peace.-Hilary
