Mike Becherer passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Thursday December 22, at the age of 65. He is predeceased by his eldest son Stephen. Mike is survived by: his sister Heidi Blanchard; former spouses Charlotte Rowan and Kathy Newton, spouse Georgina Price; children Eric (Lisa), Shayne, Matthew (Catherine), Michael (Sarah), Nerissa, Ariel; a multitude of grandchildren; and some very close friends. Rocks, minerals and gold were his passions, leaving a bit of time for chess and hunting. He was an industrious miner and later geologist, proud to receive professional designation, being “self-educated.”
Trapper Mike will be sadly missed by family and friends. A memorial will be held on Saturday December 31 from 1:30-4:30 at the Willow Point Community Hall (2165 Island Highway, Campbell River). For those who feel the need to donate funds in Mike’s name, he would have preferred you to invest in the mining industry.
