MICHAEL REINHOLD GOHRINGER
We are sad to announce the death of Michael Reinhold Gohringer on Friday, April 28, 2023. He passed away peacefully with his siblings at his side at the Riverview Health Centre in Winnipeg. Mike was 68 years old.
Mike will be deeply missed by his siblings Rudy Gohringer (Roseann) of Tampa, Florida; Angelika Gohringer Leon (Nevio) of Vaughan, Ontario; and Carl Gohringer (Julia) of London, England. He is also loved and will be fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews Andrea (Ignacio), Daniel, Kendel, Matisse, Eathan, Keowan, and Aidan. Mike was predeceased by his parents Rudolf Gohringer and Anneliese Gohringer, of Sudbury, Ontario.
Mike was born in the small Northern Ontario town of Chapleau and later grew up in Sudbury, Ontario where he attended high school and university. Following graduation, Mike embarked on a lengthy career at Canadian Pacific Railway, where he retired in 2015 as a customs business specialist. Mike had a lifelong interest in maths and sciences, and was well informed on world issues, all of which prompted many great conversations; it was always interesting being in his company. He was also an exceptionally good chess player which he avidly pursued in retirement.
Mike had a wonderful sense of humour and his comedic timing for witty responses was his signature style for lighting up a room with laughter. Mike was gracious and humble. Friends and family were especially important to Mike, as demonstrated through his devotion to our mother in her final years and his frequent travels to spend time with his nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed.
In accordance with Mike’s wishes, there will be a private family memorial service.
