With sadness we announce the passing of Mike Forget on January 5, 2021 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB. He was 71 years of age.
Mike was a family man. Growing up in Ontario, he spent a lot of time camping and being outdoors with his brothers. Mike moved to Calgary in 1977 where he met his future wife, Marie Loose. They relocated to the Crowsnest Pass in 1980, and were married in 1981. They went on to be blessed with three sons and Mike raised them to appreciate nature and the outdoors as much as he did.
Over the years, Mike was a Boy Scout leader and T-ball coach for his boys. He also enjoyed photography, going canoeing, and was an avid golfer, woodworker and fisherman, but his priority was always his family. His grandchildren were his pride and joy, and he cherished every moment spent with them. Although Mike has left us, he will remain in our hearts and fond memories will never fade.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life is his wife, Marie of Blairmore; his mother Isabel Forget (Née: Parent); his sons, Keith, Steven (Joyce) and Adam (Kylee); his grandchildren, Madison, Kataly, Victoria, Tallyn, Emily, Jonathan and Xavier; his brothers, Francis, Danny (Donna) and Robert, all of Ontario; his sisters, Bernadette of Calgary, AB and Kathy of Ontario; as well as his extended family and many friends.
He was predeceased by his father, Edward Forget, and his brothers, Clifford and Richard Forget.
A private family gathering will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Conservation Society (www.crowsnestconservation.ca, or PO Box 242, Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
