Michael Alan Anderson was born March 30, 1980 in Burns Lake, B.C. As a child his days were spent in and around his family home near Rose Lake where he became an avid outdoorsman, enjoying quadding, dirt-biking and playing hockey. He could often be found “pretend” logging when he wasn’t helping his Dad in the bush.
Michael grew up with a strong sense of family, spending weekends hauling firewood for his Grandma & neighbors and welcoming many friends over for dinners with his family. Michael had a special love for his mom that was shared generously with his friends. Mike’s sense of humor kept those around him laughing and he will be remembered for his easy smile and his love of animals. All of these qualities shaped the man and the dad he became.
Mike continued to play hockey as an adult. He shared that love with his two sons as he also took on the role of coaching. During the summer, he spent the days outside with Aubrey, Linden and Evan dirt-biking, quadding, fishing and camping. He cared for the many pets that became a part of his family, never losing the love of animals he developed as a child. When Michael was not spending time with his family he shared in the family logging business with his father.
Michael passed away in Houston on October 19, 2014. He is survived by his wife Aubrey, his two sons Linden and Evan, his mother Beatrice, his father Jack and his sister, Nicole (Shane). Mike will be deeply missed by his family and all who knew him.
A Memorial Service for Michael was held on October 27th, 2014 in the Community Hall in Houston, B.C.
