Mike Gallant

Sadly on August 17, 2010 with his family at his side, Michael Allan Gallant passed away at the age of 46.  Mike was born on October 6, 1963 in Iserlohn Germany. Although born in Germany, Mike grew up in Winnipeg then continued onto Sperling Manitoba in 2002.

Mike truly loved living in Sperling.  He was an active community volunteer with the Sperling Fire Department acting as the Deputy Fire Chief.  Mike always enjoyed his Sunday afternoons watching Nascar races or working on vintage cars with Chris and Vern.

Mike will be forever remembered by his loving and supportive wife Marge;  Parents Fred and Sandy Gallant; Mother-in-law Charlotte Mellon; Brothers Kevin (Kim)Gallant, Dean (Amber)Gallant and Mike Sutherland; Sisters Karen (Dennis) Esayenko and Kim ( Jim) Kennedy, along with numerous nephews and a niece.

Mike was predeceased by his mom Joyce Gallant, Brother Sean Sutherland and Grandma Flo.

 Mike unconditionally loved his dogs Sam, Mary and Kiki, all departed in the last few years, awaiting his arrival at the Rainbow Bridge.

 Marge and his family would like to express special thanks to Cheryl and the Staff from Cancer Care at Boundary Trails for their compassion and excellent care. Mike fought a courageous battle against cancer over the past few years and had been cared for by many dedicated individuals from Boundary Trails Health Center, Health Sciences Center Winnipeg and Cancer Care Manitoba. We thank you all.

Mike requested that he be laid to rest in the Sperling Cemetery and that there be no formal service. All are welcome to join his family and friends on August 20, 2010 at 11am for his interment.  A luncheon in the Sperling Arena to celebrate Mike’s journey through life will follow at noon. Mike wanted all those attending to be in casual attire.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to support Cancer Care Manitoba at Boundary Trails Health Center.

We will miss you dearly and love you forever.

Arrangements in care of Doyle’s Funeral Home, Carman.
