Mickey was my father-in-law. He had a heart of gold and a sense of humour. He recently passed away. This is my tribute to him.
Mickey Fluet passed away in the wee hours of Sunday September 2, 2012 after a lengthy illness. Two years ago, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The doctors operated and to everyone’s relief the tumor was benign. He was also diagnosed with diabetes which could be controlled with medication and diet. Just when we thought he had pulled through, the tumor, once again benign returned.
For awhile, everything seemed to be okay. I invited him to a family picnic that my company had in Bowness Park (Calgary, Alberta). He enjoyed himself immensely and later told me that he missed going to company functions.
