Tremblay, Michael “Bambam”

August 24, 1953 to June 13, 2023

It is with broken hearts that our family announces the passing of our beloved Mike, who passed away June 13th at the age of 69 surrounded by his loving girls after a long, brave fight against cancer. Survived by his life partner, best friend and soulmate of fifty years, his cherished wife Nancy. Also survived by his children Tracy (Clayton) Kitchkeesick and Allison (Dave) Perron and his precious grandbabies Jaeda, Jenna, Austin, Owen, Leah and Erica.

Raised in Lively, he made his home Onaping after a brief stint in Ottawa where he met the love his life. He was a successful businessman, owning his own gas station and service station and eventually a tow truck company. He retired (sort of) just before his diagnosis and as such, the message he’d want us to share here would be “Live each day as if it was your last”.

He was a lover of music and of the outdoors and enjoyed several hobbies over the years such as snowmobiling, jeeping, quadding, his Harley, his side-by-side, fishing, camping …collecting so many friends along the way. He was a lover of animals and had several furry friends over the years, all of whom he treated like gold.

Those who knew him were accustomed gregarious spirit, his playful nature and his embellished stories. You can rest assured that these qualities live on in his grandbabies, he taught them well! Mike found so much joy in being a grandfather and spent his time thinking up new adventures to share with them. The last three years were hard on him, and his adventures became fewer and tamer.

During the time he battled his illness, he grew very close to all of his doctors and nurses and made it his mission to make them laugh every chance he got. Special thanks go out to Dr. Pitre, Dr. Falk, Dr. Carlson and their teams as well as Sara Peterson. We have so much appreciation for all that you do and we cannot thank you enough for all of your support during this most difficult of times.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating directly to the Northern Ontario Cancer Foundation or the Sudbury SPCA  

As he did not wish to have a service, we ask instead that to honour your friend Mike do an anonymous act of kindness, as he always thought those were the best kind.

When we worked together Tracy, I remember all the laughter your Dad brought to you and shinanigans he would do that made you chuckle. I know you loved him very much and by the sounds of my memories, he loved you so much too! Keep all those awesome memories you have of him in your heart and you will always be smiling…inside and out. He also gave the best advice so I plan to live my life like everyday was the last! Sending lots of love and a tight hug
