Ruby, Todd, Kenneth and all the Hussey and Sturge family members,
We were so saddened to hear of Mike’s passing.
The first memory that came to mind was Mike carefully and lovingly dripping milk into Sarah’s mouth when she was suffering from a bad bout of strep. Mike loved our children as he did all children he came in contact with.
The care and kindness he showed to special children and the students of the School for the Deaf showed what a kind heart he had.
Mike was a wonderful coworker and friend. Special celebrations at our house were never complete with out Mike and Ruby being present.
We know that Mike’s pride and joys were his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Our love to you all,
Mary Jo, Dave, Sarah and Nicholas

We wish to extend our deepest condolences to the family on the passing of my cousin,may your wonderful memories bring you comfort at this sad and difficult time,you are all in our thoughts and prayers..

To Ruby, Kenneth, Todd and all the Hussey Family!
“Portugal Cove has lost one of it’s finest” and when I say that I think I am speaking for everyone in the cove that knew Mike! He was such a beautiful person and it was such a pleasure to have a chat with him, he was a people person. There were many evenings when I walked on Indian Meal Line and when I would get to Mike’s driveway Ruby would be leaving to go walking with her neighbour and I would still be in the driveway talking to Mike when they got back! Lol. He would be giving me tips on how to handle back pain, how to handle teenage boys and on and on!!
He took such wonderful care of his family and of course his Mother too, many many times I saw him on the parking lot of HSC waiting for Mrs. Hussey when she finished dialysis and all the while dealing with his own back pain etc. I also remember him telling me how excited he was to be a grandfather and I am sure he was one of the best!! “If you knew Mike you had to like Mike”.
Anyway I know he will be missed terribly by all who knew him and my heart breaks for you Ruby and all the family as you deal with losing such a special person! Our thoughts and prayers have been with you for awhile now and will continue to be with you in the difficult days ahead! God bless you all and may he give you strength! Talk to you later Mike! ????????

our deepest condolences to all the family, god bless
