With great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our husband, father, brother and friend, Mike Froese. Mike passed away at his residence on Friday June 3, 2022 at the age of 62.
Mike’s memory will be forever cherished by his wife, Betty, son, Josh, daughter, Lindsay as well as his brothers, Matt (Candace), Steve (Paula), Nathan (Marlene) and sister, Val and nieces and nephews. Mike was predeceased by his parents, Harry and Ann Froese.
Mike was born on December 1, 1959 in Winkler, MB. He was the oldest of five children and spent most of his years growing up in Reinfeld. He was raised in a loving Christian home and in his early teens, Mike attended a Lundstrom Crusade where he made his profession of faith. Mike married Betty (Wall) on August 5, 1989. They resided in Winnipeg for approximately five years where he was employed with Reimer Express Lines. In 1995 they made their home in Morden where they raised their two children. Mike was employed with the city of Morden for several years, then joined the City of Winkler where he worked in the Utilities Department for the past 15 years. He had a close relationship with his coworkers and spoke highly of them. Many good stories were told. Mike was known by many as a big tough, rough around the edges kind of guy. In reality, he was the sweetest guy with a big heart. Always helping out a friend or neighbor but would not ask for help himself. He could do it! Mike loved the outdoors and spent countless weekends camping and fishing with family and friends. We are left with many great memories at Sportsman’s Corner.
Funeral service June 13, 2022 at Wiebe Funeral Home, Winkler with interment at Rosenbach Cemetery. If friends so desire, donations may be made in Mike’s memory to Adult and Teen Challenge. We love you, Mike. Until we meet again.
