MICHAEL KIRK (published on July 04, 2009)

MICHAEL KIRK It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, Michael Kirk, on February 19, 2009 in Redwater, Alberta, at the age of 86. Dad died peacefully with both of his children at his side, from complications of Alzheimer's. Mike was predeceased by his wife Julia in 1980, as well as his siblings Fred Krywyczka, Kay Lawrence and Marie Kirk, and his nephew Jim O'Reilly. He leaves to mourn his passing his daughter Jo-Anne and grandsons Lucas and Jacob of Delta, BC and his son Michael, daughter-in-law Heather, and granddaughters Elisabeth and Carolyn of St. Albert, Alberta. He will also be missed by his loving companion, Betty Kiyan. Mike was born on April 13, 1922 in Winnipeg, where he lived most of his life. He served on the Corvette HMCS Arnprior during Second World War, escorting convoys across the Atlantic Ocean. Mike was also a realtor in Winnipeg for many years. Mike was an avid amateur photographer who chronicled our lives in movies and photos long before the advent of digital and video cameras. He loved music and dancing and always remained a kid at heart. Mike was a very proud, devoted and loving father and grandfather. He was a gentle, kind and generous man. Mike moved to Edmonton in 2004, and at the time of his death, resided at the Kipnes Centre for Veterans. The family would like to thank the staff of the Kipnes Centre for the care that he received. A graveside service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at the Holy Family Cemetery, 4355 Main Street. In lieu of flowers, donations in Mike's memory can be made to the Alzheimer's Society.
