Mike worked for the Greater City of Sudbury as a utility person since 2018, his workplace bestie Wendy Patterson and many co-workers will miss him immensely. Mike joined the Cartier Volunteer Fire Department at the young age of 16 years old. After completing 20 years of service on both first response and fire department he was awarded Captain. His mentor/friend Fire Chief Sue Loranger will forever miss him and says she “will never be able to fill his boots”.
Mike was an avid hunter, fisherman, hockey and baseball player, a diehard Habs fan and all-around great jokester and prankster. All would say his laughter and smile were absolutely without a doubt infectious. Our little town of Cartier and everyone who knew and loved him will forever remember Mike as a friend/mentor and someone they could rely on for just about anything.
