Michael will always be remembered for a man of change, courage, adventure and lateral thinking. He loved board games, paper-rock-scissors, bets and scuba diving; art, discovery and lots more. His wife, children and family were always foremost in his decsion-making and his mind. He influenced a way of thinking about Health Promotion that was instrumental in moving health towards a proactive model that saved lives, as opposed to reactive health that patched up lives and sent them back for more punishment. He will always come to mind.

What a fighter and what a climate hero. What an enlightened human. Michael's altruism and strength and realism were amazing. As a person with cancer he taught me how to live. The courage and strength of his children and family has been tremendous. Bless Sandra too.
