Michael Thompson, also known as Mikey, passed away in Calgary, AB on Sunday, July 24, 2016 at the age of 47 years.
Michael was an extraordinary individual who had the amazing gift of making the people he encountered feel special, even people he just met. He would go above and beyond to help a friend and never asked for anything in return, just friendship. For this reason Mike has many friends who have already expressed how much they will miss him, but none more than his family.
Michael will be lovingly remembered by his mother, Jean Clayton; his father Floyd (Denise) Thompson; his sister Leora Thompson; his brother Neil (Marina) Thompson and their children Virginia, Juliana, and Mariela; his extended family which includes Melanie (Alex) Iezzi and their children Brodie Thomson, Ruby Thomson, and Brianna Iezzi; and Michael (Cheryl) Forsyth and their children Ellen and Emma. Michael was predeceased by his maternal grandparents Ed and Nel Wilburn; his paternal grandparents John and Elizabeth Thompson; and his Aunt Tina Johnson.
A Funeral Service for Michael is being held on Friday August 5, 2016 at 3:00pm at Pierson’s Forest Lawn Chapel, 4121 17 Avenue SE, Calgary.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Ferret Rescue and Education Society (FRES) www.ferrets.ca
