I was deeply saddened by the news of Mike's passing. Mike and I were coworkers at St Joseph's Health Care London and I greatly enjoyed our years of working together. My heart felt condolences to you and Mike's family.

A man of strong work ethic / former sheet metal worker / superb physiotherapist / and fondly remembered as a co-worker at St Joe's. He was an avid CBC listener and could quote many facts and stats. Despite his disability / he was a cut above the rest. May you rest in peace Mike and may your family and your dear Barbara know that many admired you...I am one of those.

Hi Barbara, I was so sad to hear the news of Mike's passing. He was a supportive colleague and "office mate" at St. Joe's. I admired his dedication to his work and quest for continued learning. I still have several of his Dilbert comics taped to the wall! Know that you are in my thoughts.

very sorry to hear of Mikes passing. We knew him from the early seventies as I worked with him in his sheet metal days. We have many good memories of our youth.Later we reconnected after he had entered the medical profession and we were very proud of his accomplishments. We enjoyed our visits and pontoon rides on the Goulais River when he and Barbara would visit us. He was never one to complain about his health problems. Rest in peace dear friend.

Anne and Barbara, I am very sorry for your loss. Growing up in the Soo,I knew Mike a as cousin and good friend from the very beginning. We spent alot of time together, in those early years, as I think about those summers on St Joe's Island. He was a wonderful and courageous human being and will be missed very much.

Mike was a vibrant example, to all who knew him, of courage, resilience,compassion, grace,conscientiousness and so much more. The world has lost a good man and is the poorer for it. My deepest condolences to Barbara and Anne especially.

To Barbara and Mike's family - May knowing how Mike was so admired by those who knew him bring you some comfort. Mike helped many people at St. Joseph's as a physiotherapist. He was admired however for more than his technical skills and knowledge. He was kind, always calm, respectful, positive, interested in and supportive of others, and he embraced learning and challenges. I feel very privileged to have known Mike by working with him, and I will always remember him fondly.

I was very sad to hear of Mike's passing. I worked with him at St. Joseph's and I'm sorry I was unable to attend his service. A friend of mine told me it was lovely. Mike was a trusted colleague - very knowledgable and practical. He was committed to evaluating outcomes so that we knew if our strategies were making a difference. He was an enthusiastic life-long learner. My thoughts are with you and your family. S
