In Loving Memory of

Michael David Sims


Obituary of Michael David Sims

After a long struggle with his health, Michael passed away peacefully with his mom, brother and grandmother by his side, on Thursday, June 15, 2023 at the Welland Hospital, at the age of 46. He will be dearly missed by his son, Kai, whom he was an outstanding single father to, for the last 14 years. He was a beloved son to Christine and will be remembered by his brother Jeffrey, grandmother Ida Hein and by numerous friends. Michael was predeceased by his father Donald and his grandfather Oswald Hein.

Michael was a great lover of music and had a vast collection of various types of music, but he specifically loved The Smashing Pumpkins. However, all who knew him would know that his greatest passion in his life was for being a wonderful father to his son Kai.

A special thank you to Michael's family doctor, Dr. Dec and his staff for their compassion and care through the years. In accordance with Michael's wishes, cremation has taken place and arrangements are entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). A celebration of Michael's life has not been planned at this time. In memory of Michael donations may be given to the Kidney Foundation.
