Truchon, Dr. Michael ‘Mike’

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Dr. Michael Truchon on February 21, 2020, at the age of 65 years surrounded by the love of his family. Survived by his wife Brenda. Loving father of Dr. Jaimi Heidman (Scott) and Gray Truchon (Vanessa). Proud stepfather of Ian and Matt Preston. Cherished grandpa of Rowyn, Arwyn and Lynden Heidman and Papa Mike to Everett Preston. Mike will be sadly missed by his aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and friends. Predeceased by his parents Leo and Theresa Truchon (nee Robillard). Mike practiced as a physician for over 30 years and was honoured to care for the people of Callander, North Bay and Bonfield over the course of his career. He very much enjoyed playing hockey and had many fond memories of participating in the “Docs on Ice” tournaments. Mike loved country living and thoroughly enjoyed spending time in nature and his workshop. Family and friends will cherish memories made while at the cottage, four-wheeling, camping, traveling and listening to music, especially rock ‘n’ roll. In lieu of flowers, donations to The War Amps or the North Bay Regional Health Centre Foundation would be gratefully appreciated by his family. The family would like to thank all the physicians, nurses and medical staff that supported him during the course of his illness for their care and compassion. As per his wishes, cremation will take place. A celebration of life will follow at a later date this spring.
