Michael passed away peacefully at home surrounded by love on October 15, 2013, after a lengthy but valiant fight with bladder cancer.
Mike was the most adoring and wonderful husband to the love of his life Monique (nee Renauld). One chance meeting 14 years ago was all it took for this incredible love to blossom. He will be dearly missed by Monique's family whom he loved and regarded as his very own. Family dinners will never be the same without Mike's teasing or his love of food.
He also leaves his brother Derek, his daughters Amanda (Brian) and Lauren (Steve) and his beautiful grand-daughter Mairead.
A special thanks to all who cared for Mike including our family who traveled from afar to help and our many friends and neighbours. Our hats go off to Dr. Rodney Breau for his incredible care and to Jennifer Della Ventura for always responding to our every question with such compassion. The thank yous continue to the Pain Management Team at the Ottawa General Hospital who worked tirelessly to try to control Mike's pain, to our homecare nurses - especially the S-Team, our PSW Mel, and palliative care doctors, Dr. Leigh and Dr. Randlett in Cornwall.
In lieu of flowers, those who wish to do so may make donations in Mike's name to Bladder Cancer Canada at https://www.canadahelps.org/dn/4073.The gang there have been a huge support to us in every way imaginable over the past two years.
Mike's "Send Off" will be held on Sunday, October 20, 2013 in Ottawa at the Pine View Municipal Golf Course (www.pineview.com) at 1471 Blair Road, between 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Remember, Mike didn't want anything "funerally" so no need to dress up or be in black.
