MICHAEL MURRAY ANDERSON August 28, 1939 - December 23, 2013 At his beloved Tirnanog Farm (Land of Peace), in Campbellford, Ontario surrounded by his family, Mike passed away on December 23, 2013 at the age of 74. Beloved husband of the late Wendy Anderson (nee Powell). Husband and best friend to Sheila Holmes. Loving father of Jackie (Scott), Susie (Jonathan) and Judy (Kevin), and step- father of Emily (Scott) and devoted grandfather "Gubby" to Abigail and Tessa, Michael, Megan and Kaitlyn. He was predeceased by his father James Anderson, and survived by his mother Anne Anderson (nee Murray), brother Ross (Janice) Anderson, sister Elizabeth (Graham) Anderson, brother-in-law Ken (Penny) Powell, and sisters-in-law Sheila (the late George) Avery and Susan (Claude) Cousineau and his many nieces and nephews. Mike grew up in Toronto and raised his family there. He worked at Southam Murray Printing, Ronalds Printing and Outward Bound. Following retirement and his marriage to his Fair Lady Sheila, he moved to his "soul place", Tirnanog Farm where he lived a full life with love for his family, friends and community. After a short illness it was Mike's wish to come home to Tirnanog and with his daughters, and his wife Sheila this was honoured. Mike hopefully now has the answers to many of life's questions that he pondered and is delighting in the mysteries finally known. The twinkle in his eye and his mischievous grin will be missed. There will be no visitation but there will be a service on Friday, January 3rd at Armour Heights Presbyterian Church, 105 Wilson Avenue (1 block east of Avenue Road) at 11 a.m. followed by a Celebration of Mike's life at the Cricket Club 12-3 p.m. (141 Wilson Avenue). There will also be an Open House at Tirnanog Farm in the weeks to follow. Donations can be made to the Campbellford Rotary Club or a charity of your choice.
