July 3, 1959 – January 28, 2019
Michael passed away peacefully surrounded by family on January 28th. He leaves in body but never in spirit his spouse Kimberlea, his four children Kimberly, Christy, Jackie and Mitch, his two stepchildren Jazlyn and Graycen, and his siblings, twin sister Michelle, Catherine, Issac and Warren.
Michael was born in Sacramento, California and grew up across the United States before moving to Campbell River at age 14.
There, he excelled as a local athlete and began his 45-year career with the Overwaitea Food Group, a career which took him across B.C. before he settled in White Rock.
Michael will be remembered for his integrity, strength, kindness and leadership in all aspects of his life, his community spirit and his unrelenting selflessness. He will also be remembered fondly as “Coach Mike” for his dedicated mentorship in youth softball.
His Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, February 9th from 1pm-5 pm at Hazelmere Golf
& Tennis Club (18150 8th Avenue, Surrey).
In lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations to the BC. Cancer Foundation or by paying it forward to help a child in need – whether it be funds to participate in a sport or educational activity, or by being a supportive mentor.
