Lower Coverdale, NB – It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Michael Folkins on Wednesday, December 28, 2022 at the age of 60 at his residence.
Born in Fredericton, NB, he was the son of the late Carl Folkins and the late Dorothy “Jean” Rogers.
Michael was a jack of all trades with a wide array of interests and careers. He was a cook at CFB #5, then travelled to Oklahoma for his farrier course, and worked for many years at Hub Meat Packers, and most recently became an electrical technologist at Apex Industries.
Great conversations could always be had when Michael was around. He took opportunities to help when he could and offered advice and suggestions to family and friends, sometimes whether they wanted it or not. Regardless Michael always had the best intentions and cared deeply for those around him.
Michael will be sadly missed by his daughter: Lindsay Folkins (Rachel Hunt) of Bonnyville, AB; his sister: Jackie Hamill of Hamilton, ON; his 2 half-sisters: Carla Robinson Kletke of Las Vegas, USA and Suzanne Robinson of Hamilton, ON; also by several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased his common-law partner in November 2022: Dorine Boudreau.
As per Michael’s wishes, there will be no visitation and no funeral service. A celebration of his life will be celebrated at a later date.
A donation in his memory can be made to an organization of your choice.
