ROLF (Mick) MICHELSEN

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of lifelong Sooke resident Mick Michelsen.   Mick was born in 1928 and was the youngest son of Mandus Michelsen and Sarah (Poirier) Michelsen, and a grandson of Joseph Poirier, one of the earliest settlers in Sooke. Mick was predeceased by brothers Mandus (Mangs), Earland (Dadie), Paul, and Eric, and sisters Sarah (Vowles), Lily (Haywood), Agnes (Dilley), Christine (Blight), and Marie (Hay).  Dad is survived by his daughters Michelle (Greg) Eveleigh, Melanie, Colleen, and grandchildren Sarah and Hayden Eveleigh. In lieu of flowers, donations in Mick’s name may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or a charity of your choice.  A family gathering will be held at a future date.
