February 10, 1956 – February 17, 2019
Mike passed away peacefully in his sleep February 17, 2019 after a life well-lived but cut too short. He leaves his wife Sue (nee Andruschuk) and his beloved sons, Ian and Graham.
Also saddened are his brother-in-law Rick Andruschuk and his wife Pat and their families. Mike was born in Ottawa, the only child of Nora and Alan Ridewood.
Mike began his career as a copy runner at the Ottawa Journal, moving on to staff photographer for the Canadian Press, and eventually having a varied and interesting freelance career shooting sports, political, and news events around the world.
Funeral services were held Monday, February 25 in Calgary. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
