Michael Villiers, beloved husband of thirty-nine years to Evelyn Villiers of Calgary, AB, passed away on Friday, March 27, 2020 at the age of 66 years. Mike always stayed optimistic even throughout his illness. His enthusiasm and appreciation for life will be remembered by all.

Mike had a deep passion for Shotokan karate. He practiced for over thirty-five years and loved to share his knowledge and experience with everyone.
Most important to Mike was his family. He loved spending time with his family and especially his five grandchildren.
