Obituary

SILK, Lord Michael Eric

May 11, 1937 to June 20, 2019

Peacefully at Guelph General Hospital. Beloved husband of the late Lady Joan Beverley Silk. Adored by his daughters, Deborah Joan Silk (Roy McLaren) and Susan Beverley Bergin (Mike Duncan). Proud Grampi to Sam and Olivia. He is predeceased by his brother, Robert Arthur Silk and survived by his sister Barbara Jane Reynolds. Cherished by all of his nieces and nephews.

Mike was the most thoughtful, considerate, selfless person that anyone could have the pleasure of knowing. He left a lasting impression whether you knew him for a lifetime or met him just once. When he needed it, friends and neighbours went out of their way to help him any way they could without being asked.

He enjoyed playing his steel guitar and loved to draw and paint. He had a good life at Windy Hill.

Mike did not want a memorial service or celebration. We are honouring his wishes and instead request that, if possible, please share a memory at www.gilbertmacintyreandson.com.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. John's Anglican Church (stjohnsrockwood.com), the Silk family parish.

My dear cousin Mike, who I first met over 60 years ago, you have left us all with beautiful memories of a beautiful man! Our parents, my dad and Mikes mom were siblings. My first memory was a bit blurry as I looked up, up, up, kind of reminded me of the friendly giant! We lived in Northern Ont so didn’t visit too much over the years, but I know my dad and Mike would send missals back and forth, so I always new what was happening. In the last 10 years we all reacquainted and we really got to know our cousin. When he found out we had a special cousins group called the La Rue sisters, he wanted to be a member, so we welcomed him with open arms and gave him his honorary name: Hippie La Rue of which he was very proud and used it from then on on all our correspondence. I am glad I was able to visit him last year in Guelph with my cousin Kris. The world will definitely miss Lord Mike! Your cousin, Frani Slaght Yoshida, Ken, Brad, Kendra, Hudson & Tenley😘

Uncle Mmmmmmmm.........

You will always remain in my heart. Your journey from the physical world to the spiritual one allows you to be at peace now. It is will joy that I think about you not being in any more pain, however, it is with selfishness that I am sad you have left us, (for now). You were always one to exude joy and happiness, regardless of the situation we may have found ourselves in. You were a beacon of light that brought joy to anyone and everyone you came in contact with. You saw the best in everyone and everything. A true discipline of Christ. Bless you, Uncle Mike. I would like to share a very fond memory that I have of us, that continues to warm my soul when I reflect back on it.

When I was living in the far Northern part of Ontario, in Kasheschewan, during 1999-2000 (Y2K), you were one of my closest contacts/confidant and friend during this time. I am not certain of the number of hand crafted letters that we passed back and forth to one another via Canada Post, but I could hazard a guess of 10-15 for certain.
I promised you that I would write if you would write back, and that we certainly did. I started with a short 1-2 page letter, informing you of the basics of what would be my "home" for the next year. Basically letting you know that I had arrived, was settledin and looking forward to what the year had to offer me. You wrote back. Not only did you write back but you handcrafted the most beautiful letter I could ever dream up. This letter brought me to tears. Tears of joy. Not only were the words on the paper dancing in a gorgeous, perfect, hand-crafted font, but they also conveyed the most beautiful messages. You had taken the time to draw such amazing pictures in the corners of the pages to better illustrate the point you were making in your story at the time. You took the time to put borders, page numbers, drawings on each and every page. I was in such awe of you.
I couldn't imagine the time and energy it must have taken you to write such masterpieces. Not only was I astounded by that mere fact, but also by the fact that you spent all of this time with me, at least I was in your thoughts for the time it took for you to craft these amazingly beautiful 10-12 page long letters.
You will always be my mentor Uncle Mmmmmm.
You taught me how to live with honesty, truth, compassion and most of all, how to be true to oneself. A lesson I try to live by, which conjures up images of your smiling face.
I love you Uncle Mmm...
Please hug the gang for me and tell them I miss them much and am so happy you are all back together now.
