It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Michel Filion on Friday, January 7, 2022, at the age of 68. Cherished father of Shaun Filion (Chelsey) and Jenny McCarthy. Michel will be missed by his 5 grandchildren; Cierra Smythe (Dylan), Kiana McCarthy, Riley Filion, Alexa Filion and Savannah Filion as well as his great-granddaughter Renley Smythe. Dear brother of Gilles Filion, Francine D’Ambrosio (Dino) and Gilberte Lapointe (John). Predeceased by his parents Benoit & Helen Filion and sister Sylvie Filion.
A special thank you to Dr. Kim Scher for his kindness, care, and sense of humour with my father in his last part of his journey with us.
His interests were scuba diving, fishing, crosswords, boating, and travelling. He worked at Air Canada and spent most of his life being a painter.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to WELLAND FUNERAL HOME CREMATION AND RECEPTION CENTRE. Keeping with Michel’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will take place at a later date.
