What a wonderful person who had such a positive impact on me. Outside of my immediate family (parents, sibling, wife and children), when I think of "family" I start with "Uncle Mike". Such a kind, generous and thoughtful person - oh and humorous too! Mike was able to live in the moment, even when those moments seem small an inconsequential. Like when a cousin (who shall remain nameless) and I helped clear deadfall and brush from around Sailloft on a hot summer day, Mike rewarded us after with half an ice cold Keiths each (of course he joined us with his own beer too!). I still remember him pouring the can into two glasses, the sunlight filtering through the forest onto the froth, the cold condensation on my hand as I took the glass, and the taste of my first beer after a day of physical labour in the hot sun. As we were well under age this was our first experience with beer, and while I can't say this led to my own affinity for it, I can say that it is just one example of living and enjoying life in the moment - and it's one of the many memories I will cherish of Uncle Mike. You are missed already Uncle Mike, and you will not be forgotten. Lots of love, Andrew.
Very sad to hear from the K.L. Luncheon group that Mike had passed away. Many fond memories from our years of growing up in Kirkland Lake. How fortunate we all were to have lived in that era and to always have kept in touch.
Our sympathies got out to Margo and family and to Pat, Sally and Peter.
Dear Margot, Dan, Rebecca, and Families,
I was sorry to hear about your loss. I have fond memories of times at Sail Loft and Red Top, and will always remember the fun and laughs we shared during Davison Cup Weekends. It was, and is, so easy to smile when I think of Mike.
Love and prayers,
