Michael Wheal
Michael Wheal, age 61, of Stratford, passed away peacefully at Stratford General Hospital on Wednesday, April 26, 2017. Born in Stratford, son of the late Robert and June (Rae) Wheal. Proud and supportive father of Eric (Jackie) Wheal and Jennifer (Jason) Derrick. Loving grandfather of Maddie Powell, Ally Wheal, Katie Wheal, Connor Derrick and Aiden Derrick. Mike is survived by his brother, Tom (Lorraine) Wheal and his niece Erin Wheal and nephew Alex Wheal and partner Nell. Michael will be remembered by many for his times that he would spend in classrooms teaching young children art at his grandchildren’s schools. He was very passionate about the outdoors and he loved camping, but his greatest joy in life was spending time with his children, grandchildren and their families. In keeping with Mike’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private family interment will take place at a later date in Avondale Cemetery. Mike always enjoyed seeing his children and grandchildren play sports so, in keeping with his commitment to helping children, the family requests that if you wish to make a donation in Mike’s memory, please consider the Stratford YMCA Strong Kids Program through the W.G. Young Funeral Home, 430 Huron Street, Stratford. 519.271.7411 www.wgyoungfuneralhome.com
