    We regret to advise of the death of Major William Michael “Mike” Moore, CD (Ret’d) on 26 December 2020 in Nanaimo BC at the age of 71. Mike served a full 35-year career with the Canadian Military Engineers.

    Mike was born in Oakville ON and was involved in the Royal Canadian Army Cadets as a teen. He joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1967 and graduated from the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston in 1971 with a Chemical Engineering degree.

    During his career, Mike served at Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Trenton ON, Canadian Forces Station Baldy Hughes BC, Canadian Forces School of Military Engineering in Chilliwack BC, CFB Borden ON and in CFB Winnipeg MB as Base Construction Engineering Officer, with Canadian Forces School of Aerospace Studies and 1 Canadian Air Division Headquarters.

    When Mike retired in 2002 at the rank of Major, the family moved to Nanaimo from Winnipeg to enjoy warmer weather, beautiful scenery and proximity to family. Mike played and followed sports throughout his life. He was a determined runner, venturing out daily even when confronted by the worst of Winnipeg winters. In retirement, he enjoyed playing baseball in the McGirr seniors’ league. He learned  to play the snare drum and was an active member of the Pacific Gael Pipes and Drums band. Mike was a member of the Holy Trinity Knights of Columbus Council #9990 where he helped serve his parish.

    A private family funeral will be held on 8 January 2021 at Trinity Catholic Church in Nanaimo. Online condolences can be sent to the Nanaimo Bulletin.
