RIP Mike Spence Memorial Services

Post by fleet16b »

SPENCE, Alan Michael (Mike) -

November 9, 1949 - March 9, 2013

Surrounded by his loved ones at the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice in Hamilton, Mike passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 9, 2013.

Loving father to David and Timothy. Beloved partner of Alison Watkinson and step-father to Glen (Kate) and Samantha. Predeceased by his parents Reg and Grace Spence and survived by his sister Ruth Anne Rice and his uncle Russ Spence as well as many cousins. Mike will be sadly missed by his in-laws from the Young, Houser, Adams and Hutton families. He is fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews.

Mike led hundreds of pilots to chase their aviation dreams during his 45 years as flight instructor with the Hamilton Flying Club, Seneca Aero Club (York Airport) and the EAA (Stoney Creek Airport). He recently retired from Transport Canada after 10 years as a Civil Aviation Inspector.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice for all of their care and compassion.

The service will take place in the Caledonia Baptist Church (401 Argyle St. S.) on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 11 a.m. directly followed by a reception at the church. Interment.

In lieu of flowers donations to the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice would be appreciated.

Always loved, and ever missed. Safe flight home Mike.
