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.
