Michael Charles Aitken died suddenly on February 8, 2018. Mike was born in London, Ontario in May, 1953. He was one of six brothers and two sisters.

Michael was predeceased by his father, William (Bill) Aitken and by his brother Stuart. He was self-employed as a trucker and heavy equipment operator in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Dryden.
He enjoyed his family, dogs and motorcycles. He hoped to be able to travel to a warmer climate in his coach and cruise around on his Harley. He enjoyed making deals that would get him toys that he thought he needed for his business.
