June 14, 1945 to August 11, 2021 ~ Passed away peacefully at SAH with family by his side.
Loving spouse of Margaret. Proud father of Anthony Reader (Crystal) and Samantha Huyck (Kurt Aronson). Grandfather of Jonathon, Cassie, Connor and Hannah. Dear brother of Christine Vallbona (Angelo) and Patricia Talbot (late Harry). Predeceased by his brothers Brian, Phillip (late Nancy), his sister Josephine Haddon (late Les), his nephew Richard and his niece Melissa. Forever missed by nephews Phil (Carole), Karl, Gary and his niece Denise (John). Remembered by his sister-in-law Sylvia Cormell (Dennis).
Michael was born in England and in 1966, on their honeymoon, he and his bride Margaret sailed to Canada. Together they started their life in Sault Ste. Marie and in 1974 settled on their farm in Bruce Mines. Michael enjoyed fishing and camping at Hilton Beach Trailer Park. He was mechanically minded and a trained carpenter. He was handy and dedicated to his work… a trait he instilled in both his children. He will be missed by many friends and coworkers.
The family wishes to thank the Bayshore Nurses and the staff at SAH for the care given to Michael in his final days.
