With our hearts filled with sadness that we announce the passing of Michiel Kenneth Butcher. What are the qualities that make a good man; integrity, perseverance, thoughtfulness and devotion. These are qualities that Mike lived by and everyone knew him as such without question. Mike was a remarkable father, husband, brother, son and best friend that always put everyone else’s needs, especially his three beautiful kids in front of his own. Mike loved taking his friends and family on camping trips and had a passion for backpacking. Mike’s many gifts was helping others out when they were in need. In saying that Mike was a good man would be an understatement.
Mike leaves behind: his loving wife Tanya (Scott), his three incredible daughters; Jenna Marie, Kaitlyn Rebecca and Alissa Jolie; his father Garth and mother Shannon (Beisal) Butcher; brother Murray and wife Janis(Stolte); brother Beau and wife Melissa (Larsen); father-in-law Reginald and mother-in-law Lana Scott; sister-in-law Paula and husband Jason Lenz; brother-in-law Cameron and wife Kristine Scott; sister-in-law Jennifer (Gladstone) and predeceased brother-in-law Reginald Scott. Mike was a proud uncle to many nieces and nephews that will miss him deeply. Mike also was a lifelong friend to Robert and Brad. To everyone that was a friend of Michiel’s, please know that he enjoyed and cherished every minute spent with you and was proud to call you a friend.
A Celebration of Michiel’s Life was held from the Rimbey Church of the Nazarene at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday June 3rd, 2015. A time of fellowship and refreshment followed.
