It is with profound sadness that the family of Michael George Sawers announce his passing on Thursday, January 26, 2023. He passed quietly at home with his family at the age of 71.
He was predeceased by his parents George and Marion; brothers Teddy, Melvin, Gordie and ex-wife Kathleen.
Leaving to mourn, sons Michael (Heather) and David; daughter Lisa (Gerard); grandchildren Amberr, Abigail, Rebekah, Jordan and Amber; great-grandson Edward; brothers George (Cathy), Dave (Tammy) and Raymond; sisters Patsy, Gina, Donna and Margie (Leonard); special friends Donna Sears and Wendy Watkinson, as well as Terry and Lisa Hickman for their kindness over the years.
Mike was the eldest of 11 children, known to many and a lover of animals. He would never see a friend stuck and had a smile until the very end.
The family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the palliative paramedic program team, Dr. Daulton and community health nurse Wanda-Lee Thomey for all the help and support given so Mike could stay at home with his family until he peacefully left us.
A limb has fallen from the family tree that says grieve not for me. Remember the best times, the laughter, the song, the good life I lived when I was strong.
