Remembered by many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Predeceased by his parents Michael and Barbara Braun, father-in-law Ralph Leis, mother-in-law Sarah Leis (nee Gerber) and his son James Michael Braun.
Mike was a man of few words. He was strong, patient and gentle. His great sense of humour and positive attitude shone through despite many years of physical challenges and struggles. His quiet presence will be greatly missed. His legacy is reflected in the lives of those he loved so well.
The family would like to give a special thanks to Shelly from Closing the Gap, Daniella from Care Partners and to the amazing palliative care team at Lisaard House, Cambridge.
Michael’s family will receive relatives and friends for visitation at 12pm on Wednesday, March 23rd at First Baptist Church, 306 Erb St. W., Waterloo. His funeral service will follow at 1pm.
