Your heart of gold stopped beating, your working hands can rest. The legacy of love you leave us is the very best.
On Tuesday, April 13, 2021, Mike Gaumont Sr., passed away peacefully, at the age of 70. After battling through many years of heart complications, and recent cancer diagnosis, Mike went to be with God during a walk with his wife and dog, and a backyard visit with neighbours. He will be forever loved and fondly remembered by his high school sweetheart and wife of fifty years, Betty, his children; Bonnie-Lynne (Justin), Michael (Jill), and Brad, and five grandchildren; Sam, Justyne, Michael, Kaylen, and Lily.
Mike will be lovingly remembered by so many others; including his five surviving sisters (Elaine, Leah, Carmen, Pauline, and Lorraine), many sister and brother in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews, dear friends, neighbours, and cherished kids that adopted him as “Papa Mike”.
Many loved ones wait for Mike in heaven, including his parents, Roland and Josephine Gaumont, and sister, Joanne McEwen.
