Noticeably missed by the Fishermills,and Chilligo Road neighbours (you know who you are) many special friends, life long, old, new and young who supported Mikki through out his journey.
Mikki was born in Parry Sound in 1949. He had a love for the Georgian Bay and many shanigans were had over the years! In 1963 Marge and Bill decided to move the family to Galt and then on to Preston. Mikki graduated from Preston High School and it was then that he started his own business called Sign Design. Mikki signed the city in his art work for more than 40 years, while creating many wonderful friendships and business relationships which have carried forward to present.
After Mikki’s retirement he moved to Chilligo Road, where he grew to be a steward of the land! He continued to work with his hands, while enjoying his gardening, the beautiful tulips, and the greenhouse where he started a lot of his plants from seed. Mikki had a great love of cutting large amounts of grass and a desire to keep litter from the roads. He would often say the amount of litter he picked up represents the amount of disconnect people have with the earth!
He had a great love for nature and animals and spent countless hours enjoying his music, which could be heard and enjoyed by many people passing by.
Mikki was known for his respect for people, he had away of making people feel seen and heard. A gift that endeared him to many with truthful conversation even if it hurt!
He was a racontour stopping to tell you how a watch works before he told you the time!
The family would like to thank Cambridge Palliative, the Frail Elder Care Associates, and the ParMed staff for their compassion and enhancing Mikki’s journey. He continued to learn from them all!
Another tree has fallen in the forest, its roots still nurturing underground!
Cremation has taken place, a celebration of life will be at a later date TBD.
As an expression of sympathy, please grab a bag and collect some litter.
Make the world a better place to live in!
