Obituary

“There are threads in our lives that give us form; even when we can’t see them anymore”.

On Saturday, March 5th 2022, we lost a father, a grandfather, a brother, a mentor, a teacher and story teller…..

Michael James Fitzgerald passed…..

Passed on his determination, courage, perseverance, and love. The thread that will forever hold us all together. A magnificent weaver of stories; and a gift of touching the souls he meets. 

Although the grief fills our hearts, he will forever be a part of our souls. Dad entered into a place where he could be held eternally without a need to fight any longer.

He is remembered by his children; Joseph Fitzgerald (Brigette), Nicole and Rob Lamoureux, Leanne Garfinkel (Stephen). His grandchildren; Arielle, Evan, Renee, Josh, Gavin, Rhea and Sophia. And his sisters Patricia Greene (Brian) and Jean Murphy (Bill).

Dad was grateful for the opportunity to spend more time, and reminds us to appreciate it. His story survives in the memories from so many; his lessons will forever live on.

We would like to hounour Dad by recognizing Dr. Robert Gryfe at Mount Sianai Hospital. He offered more time for dad and for us; Donations can be made to Familial GI Cancer Registry. Donations may be made in a Tribute Card to the Zane Cohen Centre for Digestive Diseases online by visiting http://www.zanecohencentre.com (select Support our Work) or by calling (416)586-8203.

Dad will “go home” this summer, for a last farewell with his children before he is laid to rest. He wished “not to make a big fuss”. 

“My Father My friend until we meet again  you gave me everything that a child would ever want and we will continue to spill your love and kindness to the world”.
