Mike Walz passed away at his home on Sunday, January 20th, 2019 at the age of 62 years. He is predeceased by his father, Donald; mother, Genesta; brothers, Allan and Greg; and father-in-law, Lloyd. Mike is survived by the love of his life and devoted wife, Lori; his children and their families: Russ (wife Carrie, children Maelle and Brayden), Matt (wife Leanne, children Addison and Yvonne), Mitch (wife Amy, children Katherine and Lucas), Dustin (wife Stacey, children Noah), and Genesta (husband Jared, children Isla); mother-in-law, Yvonne; brothers: Brian (Rhonda), David (Jody), and Brad; sisters-in-law: Wanda (Doug), Tracy (Bezhad), Dara (Angus), Lee (John), and Ria; brothers-in-law, Darcy and Lloyd (Tammy); as well as many nieces and nephews, all of whom he loved dearly but teased relentlessly. Mike was born in Moose Jaw, SK and was educated on the farm as well as Lindale and A.E. Peacock Collegiate. Mike and Lori met in the summer of 1975, fell in love and married in 1979. Mike’s life passion was his wife, children and being a grandfather to all his little grandbabies. He loved the family farm, working with his hands, playing guitar, hockey, skiing, camping, classic cars and his lawn. Mike left us too early; he was a humble and joyful man who will be remembered fondly by everyone.
