COJOCAR _ Michael (Mike) 1910 - 2005 Mike passed away peacefully on Friday, June 24 in Calgary at the age of 94. He was born in Limerick, SK, the first of seven children born to Rose and David Cojocar and the last survivor of his other siblings. Mike and his wife Lillian lived for many years in Assiniboia, SK, where they raised their three children, and were very active in community life. He owned and operated flourmills in southern Saskatchewan. His interest in horses was one of his many passions in life which moved him onto his later career as an owner and trainer on the Western Thoroughbred Racing Circuit. His Diamond C racing stable also frequented race tracks down east and he often played the ponies in Southern California. He was predeceased by his wife Lillian in June 1983 and his son Robert in November 2003. He is survived by his loving son Dr. Ron (Claudia) Cojocar of Hope, BC and his daughter Shirlee Gould of Calgary; his grandchildren, Michael (Tunde) Cojocar and their sons, David, Adam and Thomas of Budapest, HU, Alison Cojocar and her children, Leslie and Megan Rawson of Anchorage, AK, Andrea Gould, her husband Paul Valentine and their children, Maggie, Ross and baby Hugh, Jamie Gould, Jocelyn and Darryl Wensley and their son Flynn, all of Calgary, and Jeff (Shelley) Campf and their children, Chad and Blake of Canby, OR; and his special friend Sandy Alexander. We wish to express sincere thanks to Dr. Sangar and the wonderful staff of the Long Term Nursing Facility at the Foothills Medical Centre and also the Kidney Dialysis Department who cared for him for many years. It was Mike's wish to be cremated. A family Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
