In memory of

Michael (Mike) Edward Dodd

January 15, 2019

Surrounded by his loving family, Mike passed away peacefully on January 15, 2019, in Mississauga at the age of 69. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 35 years, Patricia, his children, Stephen, Jessica, and Alycia, and daughter-in-law Jessie. He retired from Canadian Standards Association after 37 years as Program Manager - Occupational Health and Safety.
He loved two things in life apart from his family, riding his motorcycle and using his hands to create things. Mike loved riding and planning trips with Patricia, and had a big smile no matter where he went with her. He also was able to ride with many friends, throughout Canada and the US. He was able to fashion any old piece of wood into something jaw-dropping, or create intricate cakes from scratch. His belief that you must put 100% effort into anything worth doing was evident throughout his work and hobbies, and he imparted that wisdom on his children as well.
Finally, Mike loved to travel, and was lucky enough to travel to such diverse places as going to Stonehenge, the Grand Canyon, Gangnam in Seoul, a safari in South Africa, seeing the forbidden city in Beijing, seeing the holy land in Israel, among many others. His favourite though, was completing the Alaska Highway with Stephen, driving throughout Northern BC, Yukon, and Alaska in 2015, as it brought back memories of a road trip across Canada he and his brother completed in 1974.
The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the Cancer Care team at Mississauga Hospital, especially Dr. Cindy Quinton and Dr. Justin Chopra, and all of the nurses that took care of him during his care.
Visitation will be Sunday, January 20, 2019 at The Simple Alternative, 1535 South Gateway Rd, Mississauga, ON, from 1pm to 5pm. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation to either the Canadian Cancer Society or Trillium Health Partners, Cancer Care.

Our condolences to Patricia and family. Mike spoke of you fondly and so often at work.

He was so clever and had such an insight into how we all could have been better. We were so sorry to hear that he has passed.

so much respect for Mike, I always remember the wonderful conversations we have a we travel and have dinner together the two of us. He was a class act I will miss him and he will always be in my memory. I will take my first ride on my motorcycle this spring in honour of Mike I will think of him and I will continue to think of him each and every time I hop on for a cruise until the wind in my face as I know he enjoyed that as well. His Harley will live on And with his wonderful spirit not far behind. God bless

My condolences to the family. Mike was a terrific guy who I had the opportunity to meet and ride with through Milton HOG. No moss grew under his feet, it never will. Knuckles to the wind my friend.
