Mike was born on Aug. 22, 1958 in Coronation. Alta. to parents Andy and Lillian (Kuczma) Kortgaard. He grew up the youngest of four children.
Sports were a big part of his life and if he was not playing them he was watching them. Mike got a hole-in-one at the Coronation Golf Course on hole number 4 during a round of golf with his daughter Christie.
Mike was a dedicated fan, and as much as they disappointed him year after year, he continued to cheer for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Mike loved playing crib and he rather enjoyed beating everyone who played him including his granddaughters. His sense of humour and wittiness will be greatly missed.
Mike is survived by his daughter Christie and Kevin Hewitt; granddaughters, Kylie, Kenzie and Codi Hewitt; sister Linda and Ken Merchant; brother Grant and Dixie Spooner, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents Lil and Andy Kortgaard and brother Brent Spooner.
