Michael Gaudet

Obituary of Michael Joseph Gaudet

After a valiant battle with Covid, Michael passed away on December 26, 2023, surrounded by love. Beloved husband of Barbara (nee Kimmitt), cherished brother-in-law to Marilyn Mathany (Edward), loving uncle to Stephen Mathany (Maria), Colin Mathany, and great uncle to Caleb Mathany. Mike was the loving son of the late Joseph and Ida Gaudet.

Mike spent the majority of his life in Toronto until his retirement in Port Perry. Most of all, Mike prized his friendships from childhood, Neil McNeil, Ryerson, Rotary, and throughout his business career keeping a number of these friends for his lifetime. He would tell everyone he met to keep baking with parchment paper, which he introduced to the Canadian retail market through his companies of Norscan and Specialty Paper Group. Ironically, Mike had no idea how to cook! Mike loved lakeside living, sports cars, draft beer and bacon.

There will be a Celebration of Mike’s Life on Sunday, April 14, 2024, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Port Perry Legion, 484 Bay Street in Port Perry. Memories, photos, and condolences may be left at www.waggfuneralhome.com
