Obituary of Michael Thomas Parsons

Parsons, Michael Thomas Passed away at the Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital on Friday February 4th, 2022, in his 83rd year. Beloved husband of the Patricia Anderson. Dear brother of Patricia Durrant (Gerry). Loving uncle of niece Alex (David) and nephew Nick. Predeceased by his loving parents Arthur and Lillian Parsons. He showed his love by working hard. As a long-distance driver, he made deliveries throughout UK and sometimes Europe. He drove double decker buses for London Transport and June, his first wife, was his “clippie”. As a retiree, he emigrated to Canada and reunited with a sweetheart from younger days in UK. He was proud to become a Canadian citizen. Also proud of his Cockney accent, he often said “No one understands me!” Fate brought him and Pat together. They met while he was “putting out his dust bins”. For the next nine years, they vacationed in the Caribbean, but, home was his favourite place. He enjoyed building a collection of die cast buses and tractors. Several times he attended trade shows with Stephen and Barry from the Ottawa area. His extended family in Orillia will miss him. The family would like to extend a sincere thank you the doctors at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital as well as Mandy, Dana and Heather. Cremation has taken place. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations to the Salvation Army or the OSPCA Orillia would be appreciated by the family and may be made through the Simcoe Funeral Home, 38 James Street East Orillia (705) 327 0221.
