May 31, 1958-July 24, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of husband and brother, Michael Clandening. Mike passed away peacefully at home on July 24, 2015, following a lengthy illness. He faced MSA with courage and grace and never lost his sense of humour. He is our hero. He leaves behind his loving wife, Susan Burkitt and his 3 siblings, Robert, Jane and Cheryl. Michael was born on May 31, 1958 and was raised on Quadra Island. He spent the majority of his life working in the tug boat industry and gained his official Marine Officer designation. Through his work, he developed many lifelong friendships.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, August 8th at the Quadra Island Legion at 2:00pm. For those who would like to stay and reminisce, there will be an appetizer potluck following the service.
