We Remember

MICHIE, Alexander Gordon

April 5, 1949 — December 29, 2021

Alex Michie passed away unexpectedly on December 29, 2021, in Kelowna, BC, at the age of 72.

Born in 1949 to proud parents John & Ethel in Vancouver, BC, Alex grew up alongside siblings John and D’arci. Alex is survived by his loving wife of 27 years, Gai; his children Lane (Nina) and Hannah (Will); grandchild, Josie; sister, D’arci (Steve); sister-in-law, Bonnie; nieces and nephews; and friends who became family. He was infinitely proud of his wife and children, and his legacy will live on through them.

At a young age, his love for music was born. Alex’s passion for music led him to an exciting career in the music industry as a beloved member of various bands, including the R&B Allstars. His instrument of choice was saxophone and often played as a smooth and melodic soloist. Passion for music brought Alex cherished lifelong friends; he was well respected in the Vancouver music scene and spoke often of playing with talented musicians from around the world.

In 1989, he began his real estate career in Burnaby, which brought him and his family to Kelowna in 1991.

Alex and his wife, Gai, established an award-winning real estate career together. Alex established himself in every facet of real estate, which lead him to becoming a broker, and it complimented his love of being social. Together, many of their clients became friends.

Alex will be remembered as a kind, compassionate, warm, and charming man, forever known for giving great hugs. He was loved and respected by so many.

A heartfelt thank-you goes out to family and friends who have reached out with kind words and stories of Alex.
