It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of our beloved family man, Serge Michaud. A truly special husband, dad, grandpa, uncle, and friend. His artists soul passed from this world held safely in the loving embrace of his life partner and children.

Born March 5, 1957 in Quebec City, and raised in Sherbrooke, QC, he moved out west destined to meet the woman who would hold his heart forever after.

A quiet man, his resiliency and innovation will continue to inspire us. His laughter was a calling card to join in, known well by those who loved him. He believed in simplicity, hard work, and the love of family. He was our bright light, may he rest easy knowing what an amazing man he was in all his relationships.
