HOLLICK, Michael (Mike) Stephen of White Rock passed away peacefully at the Peace Arch Hospital Hospice on December 28, 2012, with his family at his side. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Elizabeth; daughters Deb (Bill), Jo and Bryony; grandchildren Marina, Sarah and Alex; and by numerous friends and relatives. Mike was born on November 5, 1935 in London, England, the eldest of three brothers. He met his wife, Elizabeth, in 1964, and they were married two years later. Three lovely girls were born and in 1974 the young family immigrated to Canada.
Mike ran his own business, Pacific Wood Preservation Services. During his career, he provided considerable leadership to the Canadian wood preservation industry, freely giving his time in numerous capacities.
Mike’s hobbies included sailing, reading, skiing, golfing, and music; however, what he loved most was the company of friends and family. Mike will be remembered for his kindness, graciousness, and keen wit. Mike, Dad, Grampa, Michas: we loved you. A memorial gathering will be held later in January. The family wishes to thank the staff at Morgan Place and at the Peace Arch Hospital Hospice for their warmth and compassion.
