It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Michael Steven Goodfellow on Friday September 16th, 2022, after a valiant battle with ALS.
Michael was an amazing dad and proud father. His three children, David, Graham, and Lorelei were the loves of his life, and he was happiest spending time with them and supported them in everything they did. Michael is also lovingly remembered by his father, Jim, his sister, Susan (Steve), his nieces Amy (Tasos) and Melanie, his close friends Neil, Kajsa and Cindy, Heather, Al and David P.
As a strong believer in his faith, we find comfort that Michael has reunited with his mother Fay.
Michael was an avid outdoorsman that thrived spending time deep in the forest camping, hiking and exploring. He had a great laugh, was an amazing cook and always had time for people. We all fondly remember his all-encompassing bear hugs.
In keeping with Michael’s loving and generous spirit, he made the decision to donate his organs. The knowledge that others were getting a second chance at life before he passed brought him a great level of peace.
We would also like to thank the amazing and kind staff in the palliative care ward at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria for their care and compassion.
Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. (1 John 3:18)
