Michael Ketchum

May 13, 1967 — November 3, 2023

Mike passed away peacefully with loved ones by his side after a courageous battle against pancreatic cancer.  

Mike was a devoted husband to Margaret (Blagg) and an active and loving father to his children Libby, Caleb and Jessica. He will be reunited with his dear son Vincent and little baby Emily as well as his father Ted Ketchum and will meet his in-laws Elizabeth (Kirby) and Michael Blagg. He will be deeply missed by his mother Primrose (Phil), his step mother Liz, his three brothers: David (Alice), Chris (Cory) and Stephen (Amanda), his sister-in-law Sarah (Mark), and all of his wonderful nieces and nephews: Jeff (Alyssa), Tom (Tatiana), Jessica (Daniel), Anna, Katie, Sophia, Claire and Tara as well as his great niece Anastasia.  

Mike will be remembered for his calm manner, his smile, his joy of singing and his love for Georgian Bay cottage life.
