It is with immense sorrow the family of Michael Podesta share of his passing on Wednesday, January 9, 2019. Mike passed at his home in Newry, N. Ireland surrounded by the love of his family after a courageous 16 month battle with cancer. Throughout his journey he continued to share his quick wit and humour with all.
Mike is survived by his loving and caring wife Brenda, sons; Aaron and Reece and step daughter Aoife. Also survived by his sister and brother in law: Lisa and Rich Anderson (Haley, Amy and Saxon) along with extended family and dear friends in both Canada and Ireland.
Predeceased by his parents Michael and Ann Podesta.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Catherines Catholic Church on Saturday, January 12, 2019. Cremation to follow.
Mike’s final resting place will be in the Mourne Mountains of Rostrevor, N Ireland ( at a later date) which was his favourite hiking area with his family and 3 beloved dogs. Our family is most grateful for the care and concern shared with Mike and his family throughout his journey and for his wonderful medical and palliative care team that was graced to him.
