Sadly the family of Edgar Michael “Mike” Muller wishes to announce his passing, on Thursday, May 12, 2011, blessed with 81 years of life. He fought a courageous battle with cancer for many years but left this earthly life with his loving family by his side.
Left to mourn his passing are his loving wife of 57 years Joan; children and grandchildren Joan (John), Jeanie, Amie, Kris and Laura; Andy (Tracy), Nick, Zack and Lexi; Danny (Edwina), Alamanda, Kayla and Cameron; Mary Ellen, Tim; Mickey (Chris), Lily, Sophia, Nina, Amelia, Reese, Connor and Miranda; Jim (Adrienne), Nolan and Bennett; 7 great-grandchildren and many relatives and friends. He will be forever loved and remembered in our hearts.
Mike’s most special times were when his family came to visit. Whether it was camping, sitting around the fire pit, roasting a pig, talking long into the night, watching the stars, telling stories of his experiences, or just sitting around the TV watching sports. Mike worked his heart out at the sawmill and around the house all his life, there wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix or build. We would always say, “Oh don’t worry, Dad can fix that!”
We are not saying goodbye to Dad because we will always carry him in our hearts. We know that he will be greeted in Heaven by his family and our daughter and sister
Mary Ellen, and that he will share with them the stories of his life, and share the love that he continuously gave to us.
Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated by Father Harry J. Clarke at St. Rita’s Catholic Church on Monday, May 16, 2011, followed by the inurnment at Park Memorial Cemetery.
Arrangements were in care of Castlegar Funeral Chapel.
Thank you to all the nurses and doctors that cared for Dad, especially those on the 2nd floor of the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, for your patience and compassion.
