MANSON (William) Michael

September 16 1950 – October 9 2011

Michael passed away suddenly into the arms of Jesus Sunday morning. He traded his earthly treasures for the heavenly promises of God that he so faithfully served. Although his stay was too short we have been so blessed to have such an amazing father, grandfather, brother, friend, son and husband that anyone could ask for. He leaves behind his wife, Louise, of 39 years; son, Shane; daughter-in-law, Raylene; grandchildren: Stephanie and Jonah; mother, Alma; brother, Jim (Toom); sisters: Elizabeth and Tricia (Terry); so many cherished nieces, nephews, friends and family.

Michael lived in the Nanaimo/Ladysmith area for 61 years. He worked for BC ferries for 34 years. His favourite pastimes were hanging out with family and friends, riding his Harley and helping others. There are no words to describe how much he will be missed.

A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday October 15, 2011 at 2:00pm at the Nanaimo Christian School gymnasium. Refreshments to follow.
