SABYAN, Michael John Martin August 21st, 1964 – February 13th, 2014 . It is with profound sadness that we announce that Mike (Big Sexy) passed away peacefully surrounded by his family, bringing to an end his courageous battle with lung cancer. Mike was a loving Husband, Father, Son, Brother, Uncle and a great Friend to so many. He was predeceased by his grandparents, mother-in-law and his sister. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Marcy, and their two sons, Quinn and Tanner and chosen daughter Alysha. Survived by his Parents, Otto and Lorraine Sabyan, his Brother Steve, Sister Helen (Mike) and numerous Aunts, Uncles, Nieces and Nephews. . Mike was born in Vancouver and raised in the Lower Mainland. His greatest joy was his family and friends; he was always willing to lend a hand and help in any way he could. He was a big man with an even bigger heart and one of those people you never forgot even if you only spent a few minutes with him. His life was shorter than he expected but he and his wife along with their boys lived their time together to the fullest. Throughout his life he loved playing and coaching hockey, especially his son Quinn's team. . We will miss his kind heart, the twinkle in his eye and his crooked grin. His hugs were legendary! His family would like to thank the Doctors, Nurses and Support Staff at Surrey Memorial Hospital, Acute Tertiary Palliative Care Unit, for their compassionate care of Mike in his last few days. Funeral service will be held at St. Luke's R.C. Parish, Maple Ridge, February 21st at 12:00pm. Following the service, we will celebrate Mike's life at one of his favourite places, Planet Ice Maple Ridge, at 2:00pm. A memorial fund has been set up for his family at VanCity Credit Union Branch #30, Account #103473. . Five year old Tanner asked for the "phone number to Heaven so he can talk to his Daddy!" We miss you terribly Mike and we will never forget the Love you shared with us. "Just another Day in Paradise" Condolences may be sent to: www.mapleridgefuneral.ca
