He served first as Business Manager of Local 800 in Sudbury for nearly two decades and then as one of its International Representatives in Ontario, until his retirement in 2010.Mike was deeply respected by his members and colleagues for his ability to lead with vision and fairness. He was an active member in his community and a friend to all. He was a source of fun and laughter. He provided his family with an amazing life, full of opportunities. They will miss his cooking, his funny nuggets of wisdom, his endless energy and his ‘get it done yesterday’ attitude. He can rest now knowing that his impact will be felt for years to come. He was one of a kind

The family would like to thank the Home Area 3 staff of the Elizabeth Centre, for the friendship and care they devoted to Mike for the four years it was his home.
