Dad was an amazing man, father, grandfather and friend. According to his grandchildren, he was the most handsome and best Pappy ever! With his thoughts and advice, Dad was always willing and able to help us through any situation. He endured many obstacles both physically and emotionally, yet he was strong enough to carry on without our Mother, Shirley (the love of his life), for many years. Dad drew strength from his children and grandchildren while at the same time providing us with the strength that we needed. He was blessed with loving family near and far, as well as amazing friends (some lifelong and others more recent). Dad will be missed immensely. He left us too early! We are grateful that he was with family and friends when he passed. It gives us some relief knowing that he is not in pain any more. Michel (Dad) is survived by his sons Stephen (Christine), Christopher (Tracy), daughter Kim-Marie (Stephen) and his grandchildren Shawni (Rodney), Joel, Elizabeth (Meghnum), Payge and Camryn. Funeral Service to take place on Friday, September 30 at 11am at St. Joseph Parish in Fergus, with burial to follow at Belsyde Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Muscular Dystrophy Canada or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada.
