Mike was born and raised in Campbell River and worked for Holbrook Dyson Logging as a part of the road crew. Mike was actively involved in hockey & skateboarding, but his greatest happiness came from skateboarding which he excelled at. If he wasn’t with his friends or family, you could always find him at the Sportsplex Skate Park. Mike could effortlessly bring happiness to everyone he knew with his friendly, kind hearted, inviting personality. Mike will be forever remembered for his warm smile, “don’t care what you think” attitude, and for being an unforgettable one of a kind original. Mike will be deeply missed by all his family and his many friends.
“If I die before I wake, at least in heaven I can skate.”
A celebration of Michael’s life will be held Sunday, November 20, 2011 at 1 p.m. at the Eagles Hall, 1999 14th Ave Campbell River.
In lieu of flowers, donations towards a memorial bench for Mike at the top of the bowl at the Sportsplex skate park can be made to the Michael McInnes memorial account at the Coastal Community Credit Union in the Discovery Harbour.
