1935 – 2015

Mic was born in London, England and joined the RAF at the age of 14 and became an aircraft mechanic. In 1972, at the age of 36 he came to Vancouver where he met Lynda and married within months. He worked as an aircraft mechanic and as a heavy-duty mechanic until he retired officially in 2000. Mic fought several medical challenges in his later years but beat or managed them all and continued his active life of sailing, camping and playing his bagpipes. An unfortunate accident with his backhoe on his Falkland acreage took the last of his nine lives and he died “with his boots on” as he wanted. He played the pipes first with the Shuswap Pipe Band and for the last 11 years with the Kalamalka Highlanders Pipe Band. He was loved for his humour, wit, creativity, awesome friendship and advice. He was always first in line to help anyone and although he could fix just about anything he was also good at teaching others how to do it themselves. Mic will be missed by his wife Lynda, brother-in-law Don McGregor (Sandra), brother-in-law Bob Cook (Dianne) and many friends. He lost one brother Robert in 2014 but is survived by brother Victor, a son Craig and daughter Lyn, all in England. No service.
