i am so sad to hear about my good pal, Goetzie, as he was one of the guys i always looked forward to seeing when in Tobermory.

he was always fun, smiling, was a wonderful horse shoe partner, and always ready with a sip of Baileys when asked

he was always the most prepared camper i ever knew and it was fun to see what new equipment, tent or chair he brought up next

i am very sorry i am not able to get up for his celebration of life on tuesday, but my heart will be there in spirit all day

we all knew Goetzie was one of the guys who would go over the ridge for you if needed

Laurie, Brian, Robin, Michelle and extended family. 

Our deepest sympathy to you and the entire family in the recent passing of a very dear and compassionate guy. We were saddened and shocked to hear of Mikes passing, but It seems God always chooses the best.  

Unfortunately, we are unable to attend the service but will definitely have you in our thoughts and prayers. 

Mike always was so happy and smiley when he would drop baby Brian off at the house and leave for work. I vividly remember those days. We still enjoy Mikes spaghetti sauce recipe.

Sincerely, Love Gerry and Helen Webb, Thorndale

So sorry to hear about your loss and our loss to the Tobermory guys. Mike was so much a part of our closely knit group of guys that got together on the third weekend in August for 37 years.

  He will always be remembered Friday night around the campfire as we toast to his memory.
