Mike held var­i­ous jobs through­out his life­time. He worked as a lum­ber­jack out west as well as home, he worked on fish­ing boats and most re­cently re­tired from Zellers Store, Toronto, where he met his wife. Mike loved the out­doors and was an avid dart player. He was a mem­ber of the RCL Branch 55, Port Morien. Mike will be re­mem­bered as a very so­cial man and a great son and brother.
