September 2, 1940 – April 14, 2012

Mike passed away on April 14, 2012, at the age of 71 after a brief illness. Mike will be forever loved and missed by his wife of 48 years, Barbara, his son Mark (Maria), daughter Julie (Gordon), grandchildren, Alicia, Cole, Matiya and Brianna, as well as his brothers John, Clay, Justin, Quentin and Brad, and numerous extended family and friends. Mike was predeceased by his parents Townsend (Toke) Meeker and Thelma Love Meeker.

Mike was born in New Westminster and lived in Mission for most of his life where he was respected in business. In 1994 he relocated to Nelson, BC where he worked as the Wood Procurement Manager for Celgar until his retirement in 2004. Mike and Barb eventually settled in Oliver and would spend the winter months at their home in Palm Desert. Mike was an avid sportsman and aviator; hunting, fishing and flying were his passions. He touched the lives of many people with his outgoing personality and generosity, always maintaining his trademark humour and positive outlook. Mike particularly loved to spend time with his family and friends and being a Grampy was a priority.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, May 23, 2012, at 2:00 pm. at the Best Western, Mission City Lodge, 32281 Lougheed Highway, Mission, BC.
