Vale: Michael Lee Coleman 1954-2013

We received some very sad news today of the passing of my cousin Michael Coleman. Michael was the second oldest son of Dad's youngest sister Joan and husband Ken (deceased).

For no other reason than our lives took different paths, I had been out of touch with Michael for some time and only caught up with him again late last year at Yvonne Humphries funeral. He discussed his (then) recent cancer scare but was recovering well to the point where he was planning a caravan trip around Australia this year. Unfortunately, he only got as far as the Gold Coast before his disease struck him down and he passed away back in Melbourne this week.

My memories of Michael will always be of a happy kid, a hard working, family oriented man who will be missed by all those that came in contact with him.

Our thoughts are with his wife Carolyn and their children Amber, Kara and Garen.

Rest in peace Michael.
