MIKE LISSOWAY

We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our Family Patriarch


MIKE LISSOWAY

JANUARY 28,1925 – OCTOBER 22, 2016


Walking to town at least twice a day

Sweet quiet man with few words to say

Fixes TVs, watches and clocksLoves

to collect anything dtat goes

tick-tock

A friend, a laugh, a small piece of pie-

A quick smart joke and a twinkle in his eye

Vegetables, fruit, and a little of a sweet

Purposeful, tidy, orderly and neat

Fixing the tree before modter came home

Enjoying dte solace of being alone

Projectionist, splicing and setting dte reel

Always made Santa’s visit

after duisbnas Eve meal

November lllh, always walks in the snow

To send love to his Brother where red

poppies grow

“Pop Goes the Weasel” in time on the fiddle

Sharing a story and a quick little riddle

Gentle, polite, movie-star looks

Prefers news to fiction and

newspapers to books

Outdoors, gardening with bird and bugs

Happy to see you, big smile, big hugs

“So long,” sweet Gedo, you are now

Heaven’s gain

We11 love you for always and

will see you again.
