Michael Percey

June 1, 1944 - January 6, 2016

Tribute

With quiet determination and peacefully in his sleep, Mike left us in the early hours of January 6 to go to that Big Jam in the sky. Mike was a man who lived on his own terms and had a zest for life through music, humour and his many business adventures. Born in England, the eldest child of Roy and Dorothy Percey, the family followed Dad’s military career, which landed them in Ontario for the majority of Mike’s childhood years.

Mike followed his father’s footsteps and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1961. He was an administrative clerk until 1977. From 1977 to 1985 he was a chief clerk for the National Defence Headquarters, then for Canadian Forces Communication Squadron until 1992. In 1993, Mike retired from Canadian Forces Reserve Artillery Unit in Ottawa. His military career moved him from Camp Borden and Trenton, Ottawa; Winnipeg, Manitoba; overseas to Germany; Penhold, Alberta and Nanaimo, BC.

Mike is survived by his mother Dorothy, brother David (Joyce), niece and nephew Devin and Connor, son Kevin, grandchildren Faith and Jessie, daughter Cathy (Claude) and grandsons Myles and Mathieu.

Special thanks to Dr. Nick White, Dr. Blake Hoffert and Janet White for their expert help and all of Mike’s neighbours and friends for their support.

Mike met so many people in Powell River who enhanced his life through his exploits. A salute to all of you. Come and join us for one more goodbye and tell some stories about Mikey downstairs at Carlson Community Club from 1 pm-4 pm on Saturday, January 16.

Mrs. Percey, Dave & family

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult ordeal. I will always remember the good times I had with Rita & Mike in Trenton. I will especially remember the time I went for a bike ride with Mike and burnt my leg on the muffler. He had warned me to be careful but I forgot.

Anita
