With broken and heavy hearts, the family of Michael Cyril Bridger sadly announces his peaceful passing at the Miller Center in St. John's.
Michael loved hockey, especially the Toronto Maple Leafs. He loved fishing, going camping, and spending time with his loved ones.
Left to mourn, but with beautiful memories are his children Candace (Damien) and Nathan Bridger, Granddaughter Alexa, his adoring Mother Doris Bridger, beloved siblings Angela Thomas and Rex Barnes (Martha), Uncle Gordon (Ruth), Uncle Amos (Pat), Aunt Phyllis (Junior), Aunt Joyce (Bert) and many cousins and friends. Very special friend Mary Lynn who hardly ever left his side and is a true earth angel and the family will be forever grateful to her.
And his friend Dolly who took him in spirit on her travels around the world.
He is predeceased by his father Leonard Bridger, Grandparents Dorothy and William Bridger & Alberta and Cyril Barnes, Uncle Donald Barnes, and family dog Mocha.
A huge special thanks to the staff of St. Patrick's Mercy Home for their incredible care and loving nature.
A service will be held in the summer of 2024, details for the service will be disclosed at a later date.
As the lyrics of one of his favorite songs fittingly said:
Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
Rhythm and rhyme and harmony
Has helped me along
And making me strong
Give me the beat boys
And free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll
And drift away.
Forever missed, and never forgotten.
