Michael joined the Army in 1940, stationed as a cook in Victoria. It’s here he met Sue. They wed in Ceylon, Sask. in 1945. In 1947, Mike started his meatcutting career in New Westminster. He retired in 1985, giving him more time to do the things he loved – his most favorite being cooking. Even this past Christmas, he taught his boys a new, simpler way to carve the turkey!
Mike, you’ll be deeply missed.
A celebration of Michael’s life was held on Sunday, Feb. 6th at his and Sue’s home in Sardis.
