Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
My Uncle Mike was a kind, quiet, funny man. Any time I’d be at there home, we would be engaged in many sports, particularly baseball And always eating. He was always fixing something for the boys to play with, vividly remember the mini bike he would repeatedly fix for Michael or Brad, Been a great journey for this gentleman. Safety journey, you now join your siblings. Last time we seen each other was at his sister Annie funeral. I will always remember him that way. - Posted by: Allan Emond (Nephew ) on: Jun 06, 2021
Having just learned of Uncle Mike's passing, I would like to express our deepest sympathies to my cousins and their families. I was fortunate to have such a true gentleman as my uncle. While we may have lived a distance away, the numerous great memories of the family get togethers with Uncle Mike and Aunt Elsie will be with us for a lifetime. I know he always had a special place in my mom's heart, his sister Nettie. Uncle Mike was always there for you and we could always share thoughts on how the original Winnipeg Jets could be a better team.
