The family of Michael Macey is saddened to announce his passing on March 20, 2022, at Selkirk Hospital.
Michael was predeceased by his parents, Nicholas and Ann and his brother Frank. Michael is survived by his wife of 61 years, Dorothy (nee Ringach), his son Ken, daughter Linda (Richard) Bembridge, grandchildren, Hayley (Justin), Meagan, and Nicholas, great-grandchildren, Lexi and Rylee. He is also survived by his brothers, Jack (Joanne) and Steve (Cathy).
Michael was a man of strength, will and fortitude. He taught us many things that are cherished and will be passed on with pride. Michael spent his career as an Architect in Winnipeg working for many high profile companies and clients and was proud to do so in the later years with his son Ken. Many memories were made with family and friends at Betula Lake beginning in 1963 as well as annual driving trips covering the map to a favourite destination, Las Vegas.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
We were saddened to learn of Mike's passing and send our condolences to his family, especially to Dorothy and to his children Linda, Richard, Ken and grandchildren. We cherish the memories of Mike's singular welcoming spirit in our lives always pulling us in to his office, his home, his cottage for a drink and laughter; his love of his cottage and family and the lake; breakfast as he fried up bacon and eggs one cold winter morning when Dan and I had cross country skied with Ken the day before and we sat inside Mike and Dorothy's warm cottage all evening into the wee hours to be wakened by his clatter and cheerfulness and good food. That is how Mike was. He wanted people to enjoy one another, to have a good time, to eat well and laugh a lot and not take themselves too seriously. He had a gentle and light hearted soul. We wish for all who loved Mike Macey to keep hope in the ties that bind us together that live on within our hearts. How fortunate Mike's friends and family were to have someone like Mike in their lives and his grandchildren especially to have had such an awesome grandad! Our hearts are with you.

Please accept my condolences and take care of yourself. Sheila - Posted by: Sheila de Jong (Former friend and co-worker) on: Apr 03, 2022
I was in Dorothy and Mike’s wedding. Mike and I had some great conversations as we carpooled for a few years when I worked for the Free Press. As I think of Mike I remember a warm, kind person who always seemed glad to see you. Dorothy and family, I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the love of family and friends. Love, Beryl - Posted by: Beryl (Hunter) McHale (Cousin) on: Mar 26, 2022
Dear Dorothy and family. We are so very sorry to hear of Mike's passing. Although we have not been in touch recently, I have many fond memories of our childhood. Unfortunately, there are very few of us cousins left. - Posted by: Gladys & Lawrence McInnes (Gladys is Mike's cousin) on: Mar 26, 2022
