Mike Griffin Obituary, Death – The name is Griffin, Michael Maurice “Mike” Cpl., 45, lost his valiant and courageous battle with cancer on April 17, 2007, and passed away shortly thereafter. He did not succumb to cancer; rather, he lived his life with it. Mike was able to look past his illness and will continue to leave his influence on the world in the years to come. He maintained his attention on life rather than death right up until the end. Hopes and dreams that were formerly measured in years have been condensed into minutes, and those moments are the memories that we will take into the future with us. Gerald, Mike’s doting father, passed away before his son’s birth.
He leaves behind his devoted wife and soul mate, Jill (Canam,) who was by his side every step of the way. He will be greatly missed. His mother, Johanna (née Wallace) Bennett (Arnold), the lady who gave him life and was by his side when he passed away, is also among those he leaves behind. Mike will be greatly missed by his two children, Kate and Zack, who were the sources of his greatest joy. You were his entire universe, and now, as you get older and wiser, the legacy of your father will be something that shines through you. Mike’s sisters Nancy (Charles) Muise, Lorraine (Darren) Pittman, and Janice Griffin (Brian Bridgeo) will carry on his legacy after he passes away.
Mike continued his education at the Sault College of Engineering Technology after he had his diploma from high school. Between the years 1982 and 1990, he was employed in geological and environmental research throughout Northern Canada. “Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared is doubled,” he once said. There is no recognized author. For all of their care and support, a special thank you goes out to the nurses and personnel of the 3 North and ICU units at the Colchester Regional Hospital, as well as to Dr. Henderson and Ann McKim of the Palliative Care Program.
My sincere gratitude goes out to my family and friends for their support and assistance during this challenging period. It is possible to make contributions to the SPCA, the Humane Society, or the Cancer Research Institute. On Monday at eleven in the morning, there will be a funeral mass celebrated in honor of Mike’s life at the Immaculate Conception Church, which is located at 669 Prince Street in Truro. A reception will take place in Campbell Hall immediately after the service. Colchester Community Funeral Home, located at 512 Willow Street, is currently caring for the deceased’s remains.
