Michael MANN

MANN, Michael Simon
April 11, 1948 – November 16, 2012
After a long, courageous fight, Michael Simon Mann passed away on November 16th, 2012. Michael was a free spirit, rebel, beloved father, brother, lover, partner, dear friend, soulmate to many, writer, geologist, war veteran, explorer, teacher, mentor, collector, caregiver and artist. Anyone lucky enough to have had their lives touched by Michael left with a better joke, a bigger light and an open heart. Loved ones danced him to the end with love. Michael is survived by his four children and their partners, Raquel, Jaclyn and Jonny, Adam and Roni and Joseph Mann; his brother and family, David, Nan and Emily Mann; his aunt Thelma Mann; his dear cousins and their families, Joyce, Lloyd, Jason, Ryan, Jordan and Amanda Prizant and Linda, Lauren, Jennifer and James Gerwurz; his nieces, Stephanie, Elizabeth, Jessie, and Alyssa Chappe; his mother-in law, Gloria Chappe, brothers-in-law Richard (Ellen) and Marc (Eda) Chappe, and his long time partner Sandy. He will be missed dearly by his love, Linda and her children, Molly, Suzanne and Steven MacRae. Funeral was held on Monday, November 19, 2012,
at the Chevra Kadisha of Calgary (NE corner of 37th Street at Highway 22X SW, 403-640-4802). In lieu of flowers, if desired, memorial tributes can be made on Michael's behalf to The Good Life Community Bicycle Shop, www.goodlifebikes.ca.
