We are heartbroken.
Mike ("Devers") passed away in Hospice with his beloved wife of 43 years, Lil, holding his hand.
Left behind to always remember him is Lil; their daughter, Kathryn (Glen); and granddaughters, Evelyn and Holly; brothers, Ian (Lee) and Glenn; nieces, Rebecca and Megan (Blake); and his father, David.
Mike was a dedicated architect who believed in the integrity and aesthetic of well-designed, well-built buildings. The end result had to be enjoyable, sustainable, comfortable, and functional.
He loved boating, playing hockey, golfing, motorcycling, and long-distance cycling - twice riding his bike to San Francisco and four times in the Seattle to Portland (STP) Ride for Cancer.
His passions were Alfa Romeos, photography, chocolate, ice cream, and spending time with friends and family over good food, wine, music, conversation, and laughter.
He was charming, witty, compelling, devoted, intelligent, and determined (although some would say stubborn). He was a true friend, a loving husband and a very proud family man. We will miss him forever and a day, and the dark night sky has a brilliant new star to guide us.
Please consider a tribute donation in Mike's name to the Lions Gate Hospital, particularly Neurosciences.
A celebration of life will be held when it is safe to do so.
