We are so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. He was such a nice guy and always a pleasure to talk to. He will be missed.
Mike and Wendy moved in next door to us many years ago when we still lived in Dundas. He was such a pleasant person and good neighbour and friend. We had so many conversations over the fence, and again when shovelling the snow in winter. We were there when Adam was born, and watched he, Erin, and Ryan grow up.
Even though we live in Kitchener and Ottawa now, we still miss our good neighbours in Dundas.
We send our condolences to Wendy and all the family at this very sad time.
From Helen and Doug, Scott and Karin, Jeff and Sandra Gordon
Condolences Wendy and all of the family at this sad time. Our thoughts are with all of you at this time.

My deepest sympathies to the Crechiola family. Working with Mike was truly a pleasure. Mike was kind, helpful and never had a bad word to say. I loved our chats about his family and the love he had for all of them was evident. His face lit up talking about his new puppy and his laugh I will never forget. Heaven has gained its brightest star. Rest in peace Mike.
