Michael Wayne (Buds, Mike, Mikey) Chisholm of Calgary, passed away on Sunday, January 7, 2007 at the age of 24 years.
Mike was born on April 11, 1982 in Victoria, BC. At the age of two years he moved to Calgary and later graduated from Bishop Grandin High School. Anyone who had the pleasure of coming into contact with Mike was instantly considered a friend. He was a true friend and advisor to all and went the distance for anyone who needed it. Mike had a natural gift of uplifting people’s spirits through true compassion and advice. His sincerity to all was unconditional and he had an unrivalled level of cleanliness. Mike’s greatest holiday was the four months he spent backpacking around Thailand with his girlfriend Sarah. His summers were spent at Horne Lake camping, water skiing and mountain biking. In addition, he was an avid hockey player and power skater and was also an instructor for two years.
Not only was Mike a wonderful son, brother, and friend, but he was totally and completely dedicated to his family and friends. He loved with every inch of his heart and will be terribly missed by all that had the opportunity to get to know him. You were all considered his best friend and when you read this please tell a friend.
Mike will be lovingly remembered by his mother Debbie Chisholm; dad Darrell Whitney; father Doug Heslop; Mum Dorothy Heslop; grandpa Bill Chisholm; grams Jan Chisholm; grandma Audrey Ross; brother and sister-in-law, Kris and Amy Chisholm; sister and brother-in-law, Teri and Kevin Hooper; sisters, Tanya Whitney-Chisholm, Kara Whitney-Chisholm, Heather Whitney, Sara Whitney; aunts and uncles; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
