Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Michael John Kurdell. Mike, as he was known to his family and friends, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Tuesday, December 25, 2018. Born and raised in Sudbury, September 17, 1940, Mike was the devoted son of George and Mary Kurdel (both predeceased), brother to Rudy Kurdel (predeceased, wife Jean) and Madga Lahay (husband Frank, both predeceased).
Mike will be profoundly missed and forever loved by his adoring wife Sharon. Mike and Sharon, married November 25, 1967 shared a special love for 51 wonderful years. Through their love, Mike and Sharon raised their 3 children, Lisa (Fred), Jennifer (friend Chris) and David (Ana). He found great joy in spending time with his 3 beautiful granddaughters, Olivia, Cecilia and Hayley. Mike will also be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews and cousins both here in Canada as well as “the old country” of Slovakia.
Mike spent 34 years imparting knowledge and skills to numerous kids in the Sudbury area. A teacher with the Sudbury Separate School Board, Mike enjoyed coaching various sports teams while inspiring and building confidence in his students. In his retirement, Mike proudly served as a volunteer at the Northern Cancer Centre for 20 years. He was a great inspiration to many people, always showing great care and compassion. Mike enjoyed making people laugh and was always ready with a joke to tell. An exceptional athlete himself, Mike excelled at basketball in his early days, then transitioned to golf and found his true passion in the world of curling. Mike twice proudly represented Northern Ontario at the Canadian Masters Championships, winning several awards including being named to the All-Star team. When not curling competitively, Mike relished in playing in the men’s, teachers and pensioners leagues surrounded by his many curling buddies.
Visitation and prayers will be held on December 28th, 2018 at Lougheed Funeral Home, 252 Regent St. at Hazel St., Sudbury from 2-5P.M. and again from 7-9P.M.
A funeral mass will be held December 29th, 2018 at 10 A.M. at Holy Redeemer Church, 1887 Bancroft Dr. Sudbury.
Interment will follow the funeral service at the Civic Memorial Cemetery, 365 2nd Ave. N. Sudbury.
The family would like to thank everyone at the Cancer Centre, the 4th floor staff at the Health Sciences North Hospital for their care and attention; a special thank you to Dr. Noble and Dr. Knight.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Sudbury Food Bank, Maison McCulloch or a charity of your choice.

Greatly saddened to hear of Michael's passing. So sorry I wasn't able to attend funeral services, but health reasons conspired against my appearing. May choirs of angels sing Michael to his final rest.

On behalf of myself and my brothers I want to extend my deepest sympathies in the loss of your loved one. Although I only knew Mike as a neighbour, in the early 1950s' as a child, I knew Mike to be a kind and caring soul. I only met him once as an adult, about 5 years ago. Mike recognized me instantly and was quick to offer his support and kind words of my work.
May you find comfort and strength in knowing that so many are yhinkg of you and keeping you on their prayers at this time.
Blessings...Mary Ali
