October 16, 1934 to January 28, 2017
After a brave battle with cancer, Mickey passed away peacefully at the Kamloops Hospice, Saturday, January 28 with family by his side.
He was a long time resident of Darfield, B.C. where he lived on the family farm, and drove the Little Fort school bus route for 20 years before retiring. He loved animals, especially horses and dogs, and valued being involved in the local 4H Club. He was known around the area for his participation with Coffee House Music and the local Theatre within the community of Barriere. He lived a simple, yet surprisingly colorful life to which he had many interesting stories.
He is predeceased by his dad, Graham (1969), his sister, Pidge (1979) and mom, Betty (1988). He is survived by his brother, Sandy Kinloch; sister, Barbe Crabtree; daughter, Penny (Tony); son, Mike (Claire); grandchildren, Sam, Alexandria, and Charlie. There are also cousins, nieces and nephews.
A gathering to remember Mickey will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, Feb 11, 2017 at the Barriere Lions Hall, where family and friends would like to share some of their stories in his memory.
The family would like to thank the staff and volunteers at the Hospice for keeping him comfortable the last couple months. Also to the ladies and staff at the Barriere Health Center, who kept him on track with his weekly appointments while he was doing chemo treatments.
Donations can be made to the Cancer Society or Marjorie Willoughby Hospice in Kamloops. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com
