Worgan Michael Stewart
April 11, 1956 ~ September 8, 2022
Michael Stewart Worgan passed away in North Island Hospital, Comox Valley, on Thursday, September 8, 2022. His sister Patricia and son Christopher were by his side.
Michael was born April 11, 1956 in Williams Lake, BC. Throughout his life, he lived in many towns across the province, from Sandspit in Haida Gwaii to White Rock to Invermere in the Columbia Valley. In a return to the seaside, his final years were spent in Comox. Here he found a place of peace and tranquillity, often sitting at the beach creating art.
Michael was a dedicated Forester for most of his professional life. He ascended the ranks of the BC Forest Service, from fire suppression to coastal inlet surveyor and finally to LIM. His kindness towards others, his respect and love for nature, art, and literature were all evident in how he lived his life.
He will be greatly missed by all who had the good fortune to know him. He is survived by his sister Patricia Schmidt, his son, Christopher Worgan (Coco Lien), and his granddaughter Hazel.
A memorial will be held in the spring. For those wishing to honour Michael’s memory, please consider donating to the Wings over the Rockies Nature Festival.
