Mike passed away peacefully on July 22, 2020, after a long illness.
He is survived by wife Tracey, children Katie (Craig) and Brendan, grandchildren Adeen and Lachlan, brothers Tony and Kevin and mother-in-law Marlene. Also left behind are his two beloved dogs, Monkey and Piper and cousin Rose.
Mike was born in Belfast, raised in the UK, and spent most of his life in Canada, but his heart belonged in Milford, County Donegal, where most of his extended family lived.
He returned there every chance he got. He loved the sea and had a long career with BC Ferries, working as a deckhand and chief officer before retiring in 2008. He was known to pull a prank or two, being endowed with more than his share of mischief.
He was a talented musician and singer, playing Irish traditional music with a close group of companions for many years.
Mike enjoyed raising a pint with his friends, standing at the bar, discussing the world’s problems. If you want to remember him, toast him with a pint of Guinness. Sláinte.Obituary
