October 28, 1943 – April 19, 2017
It is with heavy hearts and immeasurable sadness that we said goodbye to our dear Mikey on Wednesday, April 19th.
Mike was the ultimate family man, a devoted Husband, Dad, Papa, Brother and Uncle. He was kind, non-judgmental, a gentleman and a true friend to so many. Mike started his working career as a Constable with the Winnipeg Police Force. He later worked as a Sales Rep with Ronson and Braun but spent most of his career as a partner at BD&M Marketing, a job that he loved and excelled at. Over the years he was involved with the Optimist Club, the Christmas Cheer Board, the H & H Group and Hockey Team and Crestview Mixed Slowpitch League. Mike also loved a fun game of golf with his buddies but his true passion was the cottage at Barrier Bay.
Mike is survived by his wife, of almost 50 years, Lynne, daughter Kristen; son Grant, daughter-in-law Melissa, granddaughters Mackenzie and Madeline; son Todd, daughter-in-law Katie, grandsons Ben and Travis; sister Marilyn Huska, brother-in-law Rick and nephew David; sister Leslie Stevenson, brother-in-law Tom and nephews Paul and Brad; nieces Misty and Marlee Surtees as well as his auntie Joan Barry and numerous cousins. Mike was predeceased by his mom and dad, Dr. Jack ad Mary Martin, mother and father-in-law Major Dave and Marion Surtees; brother-in-law Dean Surtees and dear nephew Bryan Huska.
We love you to the moon and back and will keep you close to our hearts forever. Miss you already dear Mike.
A celebration of life for Mike will be held from 2:30 - 4:30 (short memorial service at 3 P.M.) on Thursday, April 27, 2017 in the ANAF Hall at 300-1395 Ellice Avenue at Empress Street, across from Walmart.
