William Michael “Mike” Held passed away suddenly at his home in West Grey, ON on August 14th, 2019 in his 55th year.
Beloved husband of Cindy. Loving father of Devin and Dylan. He will be dearly missed by his mother, Barbara, his mother-in-law, Linda, and his father-in-law Albert. Cherished brother of Kim and John (Melanie), and brother-in-law of Tim and Amanda (Jeremy). Will be missed by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and great-nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Bill, and sister-in-law Diane.
Mike enjoyed collecting vintage cars, racing memorabilia, and Evel Knievel collectibles. He enjoyed fishing on the lake with his family and riding his go-kart and mini-bike. He had a passion for the outdoors, planting many trees and gardens at his home and creating hiking trails. He was talented in creating metal art pieces, one of which was a giant rooster named Diamonds for his wife. Mike loved fixing things, from building cars from individual pieces, to renovating his homes on his own. His dream home was always one on a lake, and his dream came true over a year ago with his own private lake.
To honour his wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life for Mike Held will be held on Saturday, September 7th from 1 – 4 p.m. at Fisherville District Lions Community Centre, 18 Main Avenue West, Fisherville, Ontario.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation or Big Brothers Big Sisters would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy. Arrangements entrusted to the England Funeral Home, Mount Forest.
