Michael William Attree
1948 – 2015
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Michael William Attree on Sunday, December 27th, 2015, at East Kootenay Regional Hospital.
Mike was born in Montreal, Quebec on October 7th, 1948 to Arthur and Dorothy Attree. They later relocated to the West coast where Mike spent his adolescent years. Mike entered the carpentry trade at the age of 17, and proceeded to make a lifelong career as a General Contractor Superintendent. His legacy will live on through many of the projects he contributed to throughout the Kootenays. During his free time Mike enjoyed giving back to his community. For 18 years, he was an active member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. He took pride in his work and loved to help others. In recent years, he focused on his passion for the outdoors, where he found much peace and tranquility.
Leaving to mourn are: his partner Elva Torry; his daughter Carmen (Marco) Gallina; son Curtis (Penny) Attree; grandchildren Dalton, Makayla and Mateo; brother Tom (Ingrid) Attree; friend and former wife Kathy Attree; and many cousins and close friends.
Mike was predeceased by his father, his mother, and sister Judy. Mike will forever be remembered for his quick wit, sense of humour, and love for his family.
There will be no service at his request. For those who wish, memorial donations can be made to the Cranbrook Hospital Auxiliary or Oncology Department.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
