1950 to 2018
Beloved son of Joyce and Leo Prest of Carleton Place, husband and loving best friend of Judy Rose, father of Wendy (Chris Lamont) and Michael Jr., step-father to Alexandra (Ryan Knowles) of Nova Scotia, grandfather to Jamie, Hailey and Carter Lamont & Quinn Michael Prest, step-grandfather to Angus, Henry, Oliver and Elizabeth of Nova Scotia, brother of Daniel (Dianne O’Reilly), Richard (Cathy), Barbara (Michael Usher), David (Caroline Campbell). Many nieces, nephews and special mention to Sheila and Dennis Ford.
He was a multi-talented man, capable of building or repairing anything; a tree-felling master. Many special memories were created over many years at Bennett Lake with family. He loved the outdoors, excelled in many sports and was happiest spending time in his woodlot at home in Mississippi Mills’ Ramsay where he enjoyed the past 20 years. He lived humbly and simply, never desiring the flashy things of life, and wanted his end to be the same. Therefore there will be no service. Mike donated his body to the University of Ottawa for research, hoping to help others. Donations to Almonte Hospital. Thanks to the compassionate care of the wonderful staff at the hospital.
Final arrangements and information to
C. R. Gamble Funeral Home & Chapel Inc.,
