Charles, Michael died peacefully in his home after a tough fight with cancer. Michael was truly a Renaissance man. He often referred to himself as a fighter, a lover and a wild bull rider. He believed that life was meant to be lived to the fullest but you must always take time to 'smell the roses'. Michael did all that and more. Being born in High River, Alberta in 1937 gave Michael a taste and love for hunting, fishing and camping in the foothills, first with his father, the town doctor and later with his 5 sons, Peter, Chris, Hal, Duff and Garth. While working first for the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and later AGTL (Nova Corp.) Mike and his wife Marlene traveled to many small communities throughout Alberta. Finally settling in Calgary, Michael continued working in the oil and gas industry and during that time discovered the BANJO. With his outstanding baritone voice Mike quickly became a 'local character' entertaining around Calgary and Banff (even head lining the Calgary Stampede Grandstand Show). To this day people still tell stories of Michael's many escapades in 'Cow Town'. By the 1980's Mike left Calgary for the island and tried his luck at an art gallery in Nanaimo and finally settled in Victoria in 1985 with his wife Mary. Together along with Mary's daughter Kate and son Richard, they have built a small piece of paradise in Metchosin. Michael, always the gardener, has transformed their half acre into an English country style oasis, winning gardening awards and magazine recognition along the way. His beautiful gardens have been one of his most joyous past times. The Soby's home has always been open to family and friends night and day. Each year they invite one and all to the annual 'Gathering of Ne'er Do Wells and Malcontents' to try their luck at cutthroat croquet, BBQ burgers, fun & frolicking in the pool and of course storytelling by Michael. He leaves behind many, many friends and family. He has a sister, Kaaren Soby of Telkwa, and brothers John (Debbie) of Calgary and Donald of High River. With Marlene Soby of Calgary he has five sons, Garth (Christine), Duff (Irene), Hal (Eileen), Chris (Sue) and Peter (Kari) all of Calgary. Twelve grandchildren, Patrick, Christopher, Nicole, Leif, Tia, Erik, Redier, Taylor, Kohlman, Carrie, Becky and Anna filled his life with great delight. And finally the very special love of his life, his wife Mary who helped Michael to live a stress free life albeit too short along with her children, Richard and Kate, the daughter he always wanted. A funeral service was held in High River, Alberta at St. Francis Catholic Church on June 2, 2001 at 1:00 p.m. Following the service family and friends gathered at the Bews Ranch for a celebration of Michael's life. A special thanks to the Victoria Hospice for their outstanding care and compassion at this time. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Tom baker Cancer Clinic.
