Michael Austin PERKIN
March 3rd 1957 to June 11, 2002
Mike PERKINS passed away in a tragic accident on Manitoulin Island, Northern Ontario on June 11, 2002 at the age of 45. Beloved son of Alan and Lily, steadfast and loyal friend and colleague to many, Mike was born in Bradford, Yorkshire in England. He was a technologist, microbiologist and ecologist. A former officer in the London Metropolitan Police, a trader in electronic goods in Eastern Europe, a commercial vermiculturalist and latterly an internet entrepreneur, Mike loved people, nature and machines. He enjoyed American cars, German motorcycles and fast internet connections. He loved jazz, blues, Guinness the company of Friends. Earlier this year Mike found a new home and a great welcome in Canada. He deserved at least another 45 years to enjoy both. Mike's enormous, boundless, restless spirit is now at peace.
Mike's ashes will be interred in Kagawong Cemetery, Manitoulin Island, his chosen home, at 11: 30 on October 18th 2002. Details from David WHEELER or Andrea BONSEY on 416-604-2166 or via
Reception at 165 Main Street, Kagawong from 12: 30. For all the expressions of regret and the various acts of kindness which have been afforded to date by the people of Manitoulin Island and for the role of the OPP, Friends will be eternally grateful.
