Michael, Joseph:
June 16, 1927 - November 1, 2020

Peacefully, with family by his side, on November 1st, 2020 at the age of 93 years. Joe was the beloved husband of Charlotte for 67 years, loving father of Deborah (Joe), Joseph (Carole), Phillip and Tracey (Anthony). He was a devoted Grandpa to Justin (Karen), Kylie (Scott), Shawna (Julian), Erin (Matthew) and Nicholas. Cherished Great Grandpa to Calvin and Austin. Uncle Joe will be remembered by many nieces and nephews.

Joe will be missed and remembered by the electrical supply industry, as well as members of the Etobicoke Crusader Drum & Bugle Corps. Joe will be remembered for his big heart, his sense of humour, his passion for sports, his golf games and especially his beloved Maple Leafs and Blue Jays. He will especially be remembered for his deep devotion to family and friends.

A private family funeral mass will be celebrated later this week at St. Patrick's Parish, Cambridge with interment at St. Mary's Cemetery, Mississauga. A public celebration of Joe's life will be held at a later date.

A special thank you to the loving, caring staff at Cambridge Country Manor.

In memory of Joe, donations to the MS Society of Canada or a charity of your choice would be appreciated (cards available at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener, 519-749-8467.)

I would like to extend my sincerest deepest condolences to the Michael's Family for the passing of a wonderful and amazing man, Joe Michael. I have known the Michael Family since I was in Kindergarten. I grew in Etobicoke and lived in the same neighborhood. I was best friends with Tracey and her whole Family welcomed me. Mr. and Mrs. Michael treated me as one of their own. I remember Mr. Michael taking Tracey and I to his workplace then treating us to Mr. Green Jeans at the Eaton Centre or he took us to The Underground Railroad, one of his favourite places to eat. He would also take us to see the Christmas lights downtown and see Santa at the Eaton Centre. He often talked about his pictures that he displayed in his home office of Celebrities and of lightening hitting the C.N Tower which I was always in awe of! He would give Tracey and I $10 each to go to Ashbourne Variety to buy treats of our choice! Fond and happy memories I have of this wonderful man who I thought of as my second Dad! When my Son, "Corey," was born, he had the privilege and honour of meeting this wonderful man along with Mrs. Michael. I am happy he got to meet my Son. Mr. Michael you will be missed. You left an imprint on so many peoples lives but especially mine. Your kindness, laughter, and always making me feel like part of your Family, will never be forgotten. Thank you! ❤ May you fly with the Angel's in Heaven and may your Spirit soar! Love you always. You will be missed! God bless. Much love , Nancy Cavalcante and Son, Corey 🙏❤XOXO
