Michael George Goold, 89, of Richmond, British Columbia, Canada passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at the Richmond General Hospital. Born in Gloucester, UK to William (Jimmy) and Dorothea Goold, he lived most of his life in the UK before immigrating to Canada in 1979 with his wife José. Michael was an honest man, full of integrity and possessing a keen sense of patriotism for the "old country," but was equally passionate about his new life and new friends in Canada. Michael had a knack second to none for story-telling. Stories about his Royal Air Force days in WWII when he was a very young pilot in North Africa, ferrying vital aircraft to where they were needed. Stories about the serious situations he encountered, which always seemed to end in a good humorous punch line. The love of Michael's life is José, his loving wife of nearly 65 years and a constant in his life for 78 years. Michael was a wonderful father to his son David George Randon and daughter Johanna Catherine. Michael was much-loved by his family and will be sadly missed forever. Memorial donations may be made in Michael's name to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada 1-800-955-4572.
