Mike was born and raised in Kitimat, B.C., and later moved to Smithers. In 1992, he began a 25-year career with the CN Rail bridges and structures crew. He loved travel, airplanes, being out in nature with his dog LP, music, backgammon, and especially being a grampa. Mike will be deeply missed by his life partner, Janet Larsen; her daughter Jackie and partner Justin Steeves, and their daughter Emily; her son Michael and wife Kristie, and their children, Brooklyn, Jackson and Ivan. Also left to mourn are his mother, Margaret Gallagher of Kitimat; siblings Neill (Lori), Oweney (Linda), Pat (Heather), Margaret (Joe) Pozsgay and Kevin; and six nieces and nephews. Mike passed away July 16, 2017, at Vancouver General Hospital. A celebration of his life was held July 25, 2017, at the Prestige Hudson Bay Lodge in Smithers. A second service will be held at Christ the King Catholic Church in Kitimat at a later date.
