ATTWELL, Michael Charles – Born in Plymouth, England March 22, 1934. Passed away December 7, 2017 at Lakeridge Health Oshawa after a 2 year battle with Alzheimer’s and heart disease. Dad was an avid runner, tennis player, soccer coach, reader and inventor. He graduated with a chemistry degree from University of Scotland and later while working as a chemist full time and raising a family of 4, he returned to U of T and received his BSc degree. Dad was a quiet intellectual man with a quirky sense of humour. He was kind, gentle and loving with a twinkle in his eye and a beautiful smile. Dad will be sorely missed by his daughter and caregiver in his last few years, Julie Kent (Robert), his son Michael J (Heidi), his son Graham (Jean), and his special daughter Janice Attwell. Much loved grandpa to his 3 granddaughters, Jennifer (aka Lady Ashleigh) (Andrew), Jessica and Jacqueline Mills. Also missed by grandson Micheal D Attwell and predeceased by his grandson Cory Nelson. He was “grandpa great” to his great granddaughter Nevaeh Mills and never got to meet great granddaughter KinsLee Attwell and will be missed.
Loved always n’ forever xoxo
