Mike was born in Middlesbrough, England, on May 30, 1950, the third of seven children.
The family moved to Canada in 1957. Mike was predeceased by his parents, Maurice and Joan Pounder, and his special love Jo Anne Gorski.
Mike is survived by his long-time companion Beth, his six siblings: Chris (Nigar), Jennifer (Ernie), Trevor (Sandra), Gillian, Laurie (Richard), and Alison, many nieces and nephews, and many friends worldwide, too numerous to mention.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, September 1st, from 1:00pm-4:00pm. The gathering will take place in Mike’s front yard, at 310 Hawkins Street. Refreshments will be served.
