    We regret to advise of the death of Michael Barich on 18 October 2013 at the Terraceview Lodge in Terrace, BC at the age of 92 years.

    Michael immigrated from Croatia with his family at an early age.  His father soon died in a paper mill accident and Michael was left to care for his mother and younger sister. In 1942, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Engineers and saw action in France, Belgium and Holland.  After the war, Michael worked at the Spruce Falls Pulp and Paper Company in Kapuskasing, ON.  On retiring, he moved west to Grande Prairie, AB to be close to family.

    Interment of ashes will be held at the Spirit River Catholic Cemetery on 17 May 2014 at 11:00AM.  Following the interment a time of fellowship will be held at St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church Hall in Rycroft, AB. {dcMar2017gd}[zsd, zpi]
