It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Michael Edward Gartlan, aged 63, at his home in Ajax, Ontario on Sunday, October 18th, 2020.
Mike will always be remembered by his beloved daughter Rachel Anne Gartlan of Whitby. Mike was born to, and is pre-deceased by, parents Joan Cecelia Gartlan (Landry) and William Edward Gartlan. Mike was born in April 1957 in Peterborough, Ontario but he resided in Ajax most of his life. He is lovingly remembered by his brothers and sisters of Janine Burrage (John), Cindy Norwood (Sam), Kevin Gartlan (Pauline), Shawn Gartlan, Patrick Gartlan (Mary) and Lisa Druer (Sonny). Mike is remembered by Ruth Gartlan (former spouse), his many nieces and nephews, Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and lifelong family friends.
Due to current restrictions, cremation will take place at Ajax Crematorium & Visitation Centre and Michael will be interred at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery in Whitby, Ontario with his parents, where a private family service will be held. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
