Mike was born and grew up in Digby, Nova Scotia until 1971 when the family moved to Winnipeg and settled in Transcona. Mike graduated from Transcona Collegiate Institute and continued his education to become an electrician. While in high school Mike met his sweetheart Valerie, they married and started a family while creating a life in Transcona. Mike join CN and worked there until his retirement in 2012.
Mike loved to travel and took family trips to various southern hotspots and within the USA. Mike shared his love for fishing with his son, brothers and many friends. These annual fishing trips created many stories of “how the big one got away”, each year the big one got bigger. Mike was part of a fishing club and enjoyed going on fly-in fishing trips with his friend Alfred.
Mike loved to laugh and joke with his family and friends, he was always saying “and we laughed, and we laughed, and we laughed”, and boy did the nieces and nephews love this. Mike enjoyed the many family gatherings either at his parent’s place or the cottage etc., these were always looked forward to by all.
Mike was an avid history buff and joined the St. Boniface Historical Society, creating the Carriere family tree. He spent many hours researching and sharing this with the family.
