TARON, MICHAEL LESLIE

(Uncle Buck)

March 18,1956 – June 24, 2014

It is with great sadness to announce the sudden but peaceful passing of our Dad Mike. He was born in Penticton, BC but moved with his family at a young age to Ucluelet, BC. In 1978 he moved to Port Alberni, Parksville in 1989 and finally residing in Nanoose Bay.

Mike was predeceased by his son Matthew Joel; brother Kenneth; and parents Guy and Winnifred. He is survived by his son Sean (Ashley); grandchildren Brooklynn and Sean, and daughter Tanya (Andrew); brothers Allan (Caren), Robert (Geraldine), David (Patricia) and sister Carroll (Bob), along with many nieces and nephews. A private family gathering will be held at a later date.

The family would like to acknowledge the staff at the Palliative Care Unit for their kindness, caring and professionalism during his short stay at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

Although your work on earth is done

Your life in heaven has just begun

Your struggles here were hard and long

But they’re over now, you’re finally home.

Life wasn’t easy, by choice or fate

A decision made, sometimes too late

A fight to the finish, always strong

Rest easy Dad, you’re finally home.
