Our much beloved brother Michael grew up with a love of all sports. From a young age he played hockey, soccer, and golf. Throughout his life he worked for Bell Canada, the financial industry, and then found his true passion as a cook/chef. He had a love for all varieties of music. He enjoyed getting together with friends at the studio to jam. He and Monica would sing and play various instruments together as often as they could. Michael loved life and his biggest love was Monica. He will be dearly missed by everyone whose life he touched.
