Michael Barich

Loving husband and father passed peacefully on October 18, 2013 at Terraceview Lodge at the age of 92. He is predeceased by his father, Anton and his mother, Ika. He leaves behind his sister Mary, son John and daughters Beverley and Louise (Ernest); also grandchildren Lauren, Dylan, Cohen and Vincent.

Michael was a veteran who enlisted and served honourably as a member of the Royal Canadian Engineers in Europe during World War 2. After the war, he came home to Kapuskasing, Ontario where he worked at Spruce Falls Power and Paper Company for 40 years. Upon retiring, he moved West in order to be close to family.

The family would like to thank the staff at Terraceview for their care and support. He thought of you as an extended family and called the place home. We are sure he will be missed for his good humour and cheerful disposition. We would also like to thank Dr. Linton for his care.

A private Celebration Of Life will be held in Rycroft, Alberta at a date yet to be determined.
