Death Notice

It is with broken hearts and deep sadness that we announce the sudden death of our cherished brother Mike, at the young age of 63. Oldest sibling of Mary Lou (Matt) of Sarnia, Kathy of Calgary, Maribeth of Sarnia and brother Danny (Tammy) of Bright’s Grove. Also survived by niece Jocelyn of Sarnia, nephews Shawn of Calgary and Dillon of Sarnia. Mike is predeceased by his parents Barbara (2003), Joseph (2006), by his sister Karen (1974) and nephews Josh and Jessie. In Mike’s younger years he was an avid baseball player and loved his time with the marching diplomats. As Mike’s health began to slow him down, he took great comfort in his close relationship with Jesus. Mike has gone home to be with his Lord and Saviour, where the streets are golden, and he is free at last from all his pain. There are no words to express our sorrow and we will forever be grateful and cherish our family reunion on February 4th. But now Mike has another joyful family reunion to attend in Paradise. Watch over us Mike, shine bright, we will miss and forever love you. Cremation has taken place. Private family prayers to follow. All our love, Mary Lou, Matt, Danny, Tammy, Kathy, and Maribeth. Sympathy may be expressed through donations to the Sarnia & District Humane Society or the Salvation Army (cheques only at the funeral home please). Arrangements entrusted at Smith Funeral Home, 1576 London Line, Sarnia, Ontario.
