Du MONT, Michael Patrick
1953 — 2019
It is with great sadness and very heavy hearts that the family of Michael Du Mont announce his passing on July 18, 2019 at Kelowna Hospice, in the arms of his loving wife Donna, after a long, courageous battle with cancer.
Mike was born on December 13, 1953, in Prince Rupert, BC., the third of five children of Robert and Freda Du Mont. Mike’s family moved often when he was young, he met the love of his life, Donna, while attending high school in Revelstoke. Mike spent many years in the lower mainland, graduating from Simon Fraser University and pursuing various professional designations; he was involved in various enterprises finally settling in Kelowna with his career as a managing broker and strata manager for Pacific Quorum.
Mike loved his work, and when not in the office, he enjoyed daily nature walks, the neighborhood beaver, camping, good food, his bird collection and just relaxing with Donna and their dog. Animals were attracted to Mike like fleas to a dog, he always had his pet on his lap and treats in his hand, but his love for his family was most important of all. He was a very gentle soul with a robust sense of humor even during dark times.
Mike is survived by his loving wife Donna, his son Clayton, siblings Robert (Viki), Mary-Lee (Doug), Janice, John (Ruth), sister in law Pat Greyell (Randy) nephews and nieces Rob, Karin, Lara, Xenia, Joshua, Charlotte, Ping and Lori.
Mike will be profoundly missed by all who knew him.
A funeral service will be held on August 7, at 1:00 P.M. at the Springfield Funeral Home in Kelowna.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the S.P.C.A. or the B.C. Cancer Clinic would be greatly appreciated.
