Obituary

With heavy hearts, we announce the peaceful passing of Michael John Gadway on Monday, January 27 2020 at the age of 74 after a courageous battle with ALS. Michael was a man of pride, character and faith. He will always be remembered for his deep love of family, sense of humour and loyalty to his friends. A graduate of Ryerson, Michael went on to enjoy an accomplished career at IBM and later Celestica. Michael had a lifelong passion for the game of golf both on and off the course. In his retirement years, he enjoyed serving as scorer for the Granite Ridge Men’s Golf League. After moving to Milton, Michael deepened his relationship with the Catholic Church joining the Holy Rosary Parish. Michael will be missed deeply by his wife Beatrix (Trixy) Benner, his sister, Carolyn, son, Jeffrey (Elizabeth Foley), and stepsons Josh (Daniela), and Jon (Kaitlyn). Affectionately known as ‘Grand-Mike’ to Bela, Jackson and Teddy, Michael will be missed dearly by his family, “the golf guys”, along with friends and community members alike from Milton and Etobicoke.

Family and friends are invited to gather on Thursday, January 30, 2020 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm at McKersie-Kocher Funeral Home 114 Main St. E. Milton 905-878-4452. Holy Mass will be celebrated to honour his loving life on Friday, January 31, 2020 at 11am at Holy Rosary Church 139 Martin St. Milton. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations to ALS or the Townsend-Smith Foundation would be appreciated.

Sad news indeed. ‘Auntie’ Ruthie , Michael. and Carolyn were all important to me as extended family and neighbors at Mountain Lake. Meeting Mike again later in my life at IBM was special too. He was always kind and fun to spend time with. My condolences to you Trixi (who I met when I was very young), Carolyn and your families. I will hold a warm spot in my heart for Mike.

I have no words. Mike was my friend and mentor at work so many years ago. He was a quiet leader and incredibly thoughtful, kind, funny and compassionate. The world has suffered a major loss and my thoughts go out to all of those who's hearts are breaking. Rest in Peace in friend.
