Obituary of Michael Strangward
It is with shattered hearts that Matthew and I announce the peaceful passing of Michael, husband and father on December 1st, 2018. He will be remembered for being a social butterfly in his earlier years and a seeker of the truth of many worldly affairs later in life. His heart was an abundance of kindness, mind was open without judgement and he so valued his relationships with his family and friends. He was one of a kind. Michael was so very proud of his three nieces Makayla, Emma and Mya and their unconditional love could fill him up whole even on his darkest days.
Among those waiting to welcome him home to paradise, as those beloved who have gone before him are, his mother, Christina Parker, Nanny Jones “Margaret”, Douglas Wagner, Corey Murphy and Terry Flemming. He is survived by his wife Patricia, sons, Matthew and Jeremy; brothers, Darren, Shawn, Greg (Melanie) and Mark (Nicole); sister, Melissa. Step father, Gary Parker; sister - in – law, Mary (Walter); mother and father in-law, Catherine and Grant Cameron. As well as loved by several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Michael my love may you rest in eternal peace. I pray you have taken all the love from all of us with you into your next journey. You will be met by so much more love in heaven your heart will overflow. A part of me will be missing forever but your unwavering love for me will see me through. So long for now until our souls reunite under the grace of God in heaven. Love always, Tricia.
