Eugene Edward Mickelson (Sam)

November 11, 1950- December 16, 2010

With broken hearts we announce the passing of our wonderful father, grandfather, uncle and brother Sam, on December 16, 2010 at the Lethbridge Hospital. After a lengthy battle with lung and Kennedy’s disease Dad is now resting peacefully with his mother, Stella Mickelson and father, John Mickelson. He is survived by his two children Nashira Margison and Josh Margison, his siblings Ginny, Judy, Jim, Linda and Sherri, grandchildren Justin, Jasmine and Trenton as well as many nieces and nephews, cousins and many dear friends.

Sam was born in Red Deer, Alberta; however, he lived most of his life in Cranbrook and the Columbia Valley. He recently moved to Lethbridge to be close to his grandchildren especially Justin as he loved to watch him play hockey! Sam was a strong willed, hard working, and intelligent man. Many looked up to him for his excellent work in the forest industry. Sam loved to sing and dance to his favourite artists, Bob Dylan and Dr. Hook. He was a true fan of the “Flyers” and never missed a hockey game! He will truly be remembered by his comical rhymes that made anyone laugh.

It is comforting to know that Sam can now rest peacefully and no longer endure his pain! God embrace you as we all did! He will truly be missed by everyone! We love you!

A celebration of life will take place at a later date.
