Briggs, Michael A.

BRIGGS, Michael Anthony
(retired General Practitioner from Guelph) -

Passed away peacefully on Saturday June 6 2020 in his home at the Royal on Gordon.

He will be missed dearly by his wife of 60 years, Dorothy (Lindores); son David (Nancy) and grandsons Darren and Joshua; daughter Kathleen Penner (Andy) and grandchildren Kaden, Mitchell and Leah; son Malcolm (Lindsay Page) and grandchildren Nathan and Kinsley; son Stephen (Andrea) and grandchildren Evangelina, Graciela, Josiah, Anouk and Jude.

Michael had a family practice in Guelph for 32 years. He was a devoted father and grandpa. He loved playing with his grandchildren. They brought him so much joy and they will all miss the love and adoration of their Grandpa.

Michael was a collector and he also was an avid hiker. His favourite hikes were long hikes through the Peak District in England and he took his family to Sheffield England many times to learn about where he was from. Michael felt deeply for children and he cared for his own children and grandchildren but also always had five sponsored children from various countries that he supported.

We want to thank all of those who cared for him at Guelph General hospital and when he was home, from Paramed and Bayshore medical. Your care allowed us to have time with him at home which was a great blessing to us all.

There will be a private burial and memorial for family only. There will be no visitation. Arrangements entrusted to the WALL-CUSTANCE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 519-822-0051 or

Thank you to friends who have reached out to us to offer prayers and support. As expressions of sympathy, donations to Compassion Canada to support the children that Michael always loved to help, would be greatly appreciated.

A tree will be planted in memory of Michael A. Briggs in the Wall-Custance Memorial Forest, University of Guelph Arboretum.
