Michael, I'm soo saddened to hear you have left us. I remember you from elementary school , you were the kindest and sweetest person. Tonight when I was rocking my daughter who has a rare disease, I thought of you. I thought of how I could have been a better friend to you. I wanted to find you and catch up. I'm sorry that I didn't contact you sooner, you were truly an amazing person! I'm really heart broken but I know that heaven gained an beautiful angel. One thing I remember you always had alpha sprouts for lunch. I didn't know what they were till I met you. My condolences to you family and your wonderful mother. Lots of love.

On behalf of the Centre for Independent Living in Toronto (CILT), I would like to offer our deepest condolences to Michael's loved ones on this profound loss. As you can see from photos shared by others below, Michael was been an important and respected part of the CILT community for many years. Michael's community-mindedness was an inspiration to his peers. His efforts for disability justice rallied others alongside him. Through his considerable advocacy efforts, with CILT and also through the Toronto Accessibility Advisory Committee (TAAC), Michael worked hard everyday to change the world for the better. Thank you, Michael for all you have done to raise up the needs of our community and to shape a better world, inclusive of us all.
On a personal note, Michael and I were both members of the TAAC and we often sat together at meetings (in the pre-lockdown days). I loved chatting and strategizing with Michael. He had the uncommon ability to be able critique something with sincerity and kindness. He was one of the most kind and genuine people I have had the pleasure of knowing. I will miss you, Michael. We all will.

Michael was a very special person - a shining example of what we can all, in spite of any physical limitation, be capable of, if we were only to put our hearts and minds to it...
He was humble yet noble and generous of spirit; always there to offer comfort and affection
I feel honored and enriched by the gift of his amity.
I will miss him,
I will miss his sweet, reassuring smile, the softness and gentleness in his voice... His parting saddens me, yet I find solace in the thought of him, our dear Michael, dancing now, in the radiance and blessedness of his well deserved Eternity.

On behalf of the City of Toronto's Accessibility Unit, we offer our gratitude for Michael's service as a member of the Toronto Accessibility Advisory Committee for the past 2 and a half years.

As a member of this advisory body to City Council, Michael and his fellow members provided advice on removing and preventing barriers for people with disabilities and advancing accessibility for everyone living, working and playing in the City of Toronto.

In so doing, Michael had an active hand in improving the equity and quality of life for all Torontonians. With our profound respect to Michael and his family.

The first time I met Michael was over 15 years ago. He was very friendly and I felt like I had known him my whole life. He was knowledgeable, intelligent and a bright light. When I last spoke with him, he asked me to pray for him. Michael, may you rest in peace, now you are with your loving mom. My deepest condolences to his family.

My condolences to his family and all who loved him.

I came to know Michael through the time he dedicated as a client partner at VHA Home Healthcare. Michael was involved in helping to shape and improve home care by generously sharing his lived experiences . He was an integral part of a few key committees and many VHA staff had the pleasure to work alongside him over the past 5 years. His insights, contributions and wonderful personality will be deeply missed by those of us who had the opportunity to get to know him and spend time in his company. My sincere condolences are offered to his friends and family.

Michael has been my neighbour for many years. We shared many conversations, with him always seeming to know more news about “stuff” in the building than I did! He had an amazing memory for people’s birthdays. He would collect clothes and things for the Scott Mission. He would leave envelopes on my door stuffed with helpful articles about plants, and birds and NL...anything he knew I was interested in. He was often a smiling face. Sitting in the lobby, or outside in the sun, on his walker, and greeting everyone. He never complained once about pain or disability. Our superintendent, David, on hearing the news of his passing, said “The building will not be the same without him”. Godspeed, Michael. I will miss you.
