Michael Terrance Roy McDonell

January 28, 1949 – March 19, 2020

It is with a great sadness we announce the passing of our husband, father, uncle, grandfather, great uncle, brother-in-law on March 19, 2020 with his wife at his side when he passed.

Mike’s greatest pride was his family and friends. He is survived by his wife Heather and son Cameron. He leaves behind many special friendships and numerous cousins.

Mike was predeceased by his parents Archibald Cameron (2002) and his mom Theresa (1988).

Mike was a very kind and gentle person. He worked hard and enjoyed life in general. He worked many different places, Triple E, Phoenix Lumber, Automotive painting, North American Lumber and Faroex.

He was a very prosperous man raised his family, building a life full of love, laughter and memories with them. He enjoyed time spent with family and friends.

You could count on him for a witty joke or some kind of gesture. Mike always took care of everybody else, especially with his favourite hobby which was wood working and making sure his family was looked after. Mike had a special saying he always used when feeling down, “Never leave a good man down.”

A special thank you to the EMT’s, R.C.M.P., special friend Peggy and to Gilbart Funeral Home for their excellent care and hard work they did for Mike.

As per Mike’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life and interment will take place at a later date. It was his wish to be buried with his mother in Gimli.

Lost but not forgotten

Love you and miss you,

Heather and Cameron
