MARTELLI, MICHAEL (MIKE)
Mike passed away Thursday,
June 9, 2011 at the age of 59.
He is survived by his loving wife Elaine, son Scott (Cheryl), daughter Sarah Prosser (Joel), seven
grandchildren, brother Mark (Sue), sister Karen Marinucci (Dave),
stepchildren John Larocque
(Jada Alcock) and Nikki Larocque (Brad Wallace), and a large
extended family. He is sadly
predeceased by his parents,
Dominic and Olga.
Mike grew up in Burnaby and lived in the lower mainland
until he moved to Kelowna in 1998, where he enjoyed one
of his many passions—boating. He was happiest in the
middle of the lake with his friends and family. If he wasn’t
on the lake he was on the golf course. Mike coached minor league sports most of his life, but was actively involved with minor football for over 40 years. He applied the saying,
“Go Hard or Go Home” to everything he did, on and off the field. Later in life, he enjoyed attending Elvis festivals,
serving as the Colonel to 2 of his dear friends. Mike was
in sales most of his career, and in 2006, with his wife and business partner, he made a career change and began
running Interior Tax & File Small Business Services,
a successful small business services company.
A Funeral Mass will be held at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 839 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna on Friday, June 17at 1:00. If you wish to make a donation, please do so in Mike’s name to minor sports organizations
or the Hemophilia Society www.hemophilia.ca.
