It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Michael James Troyer. Following a two-year battle with cancer, he died peacefully surrounded by his family.
He leaves behind his best friend and wife of 32 years, Lindsay Worden, as well as his children, his pride and joy, Cameron and Hilary. He was a loving son to Loretta (nee Kennedy) and the late Peter, older brother to Anne (Marty), Paul (Ann-Louise), and Lise (Chris), son-in-law to the late Bob and Beverley Worden, brother-in-law to Peter (Ann) and Cathy (Brian), and Uncle Michael or Muncle to many nieces and nephews.
Michael enjoyed his childhood in Pointe Claire, as well as his weekends and summer at Orford Lake. He was an active young man, in sport and in social circles. His father’s wish that he marry a skier, a priority in their family, came true in 1990 when Michael married Lindsay. He made friends wherever he went – through their moves to Burlington then Kitchener and back to Beaconsfield. Throughout his life, Michael was the ultimate host and created countless memories with his family and friends at some of his favourite places: Orford, the fishing camp, Goose Rocks, and finally his dream farm in Antigonish.
We are heartbroken to see him go, but we are so grateful for the time we had.
Please join us in a celebration of his life on Saturday, January 7, 2023 at 2pm at Voluntas, 4695 St-Jean Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Qc H9H 2A7.
In lieu of flowers we would appreciate donations in his memory to the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence.
As long as the sun shines…
The wind blows…
The rain falls…
You will live on inside of me forever
For that is all my heart knows
