Beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend, passed away tragically and much too soon on 27 October 2021 at the age of 55.
Michael was born on July 5, 1966 in Port Hope Ontario where, except for three years he spent in Ottawa attending Carleton University studying urban planning, he lived his entire life. In Port Hope, Michael built a successful contracting business and earned his reputation as a gifted tradesman over his 30+ years as a licensed carpenter and contractor. In equal parts, he took great pride and care in his craftsmanship and in his family.
Michael's untimely death leaves behind his wife Janet (Lowry), his children Samantha (Johnathan Sparks), Megan and Brent, his parents Edmund and Maureen Hickey, his sisters Laura (John Pokocky) and Lisa (Michael Thiele), his Parents in-law Lynford and Elsie Lowry, his siblings-in-law Rob (Kay) and Randy Lowry, and his nieces and nephews Stephen, Nathan, Eric, Lizzie, Kristin and Keely. Mike's many good friends and extended family members will miss his fun-loving nature, his cheekiness, and his undying passion for his Habs.
