Michael Richard Cowley
May 18, 1946 - Sunday, September 23, 2018

Michael Richard Cowley, age 72, passed away in the warm and comforting hands of the Tom Baker Centre at the Foothills Hospital on Sunday, September 23, 2018 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He is survived by his son Paul de Andrade-Cowley, his sister Ann Cowley, and cousins.

Mike was born May 18, 1946 in Leicester, England to Helena and Horace Cowley. Mike grew up raising chickens and experiencing the simpler side of life. He was very active and spirited, taking pride in his athletic accomplishments. Entering young adulthood, a passion for music quickly developed so he took up the drums and played many gigs with his band “Unit 5”.

Mike immigrated to Canada in 1975 where he met many caring friends and coworkers who helped him with his transition. He often told stories of watching the Calgary tower being built from his downtown apartment window. Years later, he successfully ran his own accounting business before retiring on March 31, 2018.

Mike's journey inspired a fundraiser by his son with the Alberta Cancer Foundation called Laps for Life to spread awareness and hope for others on a similar journey. During his last months, Mike was surrounded and loved by his family and friends who stayed by his side till the very end.

There will be a Graveside Service on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at 1:00 pm at Airdrie Cemetery, followed by a Celebration of Life at Choice Memorial (105 - 4715 13 St NE, Calgary) to honour Mike's time on earth and the ripple he inspired that lives on.
