Michael Christie Denny

April 10, 1942 - October 12, 2014


Loving father, grandfather, mentor and friend to many who knew him.

A noble human being who touched many hearts.

An irreplaceable loss for us all.

   O my God! O my God! Verily, Thy servant, humble before the majesty of Thy divine supremacy, lowly at the door of Thy oneness, hath believed in Thee and in Thy verses, hath testified to Thy word, hath been enkindled with the fire of Thy love, hath been immersed in the depth of the ocean of Thy knowledge, hath been attracted by Thy breezes, hath relied upon Thee, hath turned his face to Thee, hath offered his supplications to Thee, and hath been assured of Thy pardon and forgiveness. He hath abandoned this mortal life and hath flown to the kingdom of immortality, yearning for the favor of meeting Thee.

            O Lord, glorify his station, shelter him under the the pavilion of Thy supreme mercy, cause him to enter Thy glorious paradise, and perpetuate his existence in Thine exalted rose garden, that he may plunge into the sea of light in the world of mysteries.

            Verily, Thou art the Generous, the Powerful, the Forgiver and the Bestower.

From: Patrick Ney
Relation: Old friend

Mike was a dear friend who looked after me when I first moved from Ontario to Nelson. Not only did he make me feel at home but also acted as a mentor for me. Sitting with him in his apartment and listening to his stories of sailing infected me with a passion that carries on to this day. As Dear Mike said “Sailing fills a whole in my life, that I didn’t realize was there.”
It was more then just stories, it was like to old souls connecting. I was in my early 20’s at the time and Mike was well into his 60’s, and yet we became fast friends. I was lucky to introduce Mike to my first son, but it was my second, Owen Denny Danger Ney, that I would have loved him to meet. I named him after Mike and as he has grown older I see a lot of him in Owen. I’m not sure if it’s the devil may care smile, or the twinkle in his eye when I know he is up to no good, but it always brings back memories of my time in Nelson, and of Mike.
Michael Denny was a dear friend, he not only touched me but anyone who took the time to get to know him. Even though it has been 12 year since I lived in Nelson, and three since the last time I saw him, I still remember our talks like they were yesterday. The world is a lesser place without him. That said, the memories I carry and the lessons he taught me, will carry on his spirit.
Patrick, Terri, Jack, Owen, & Addi Ney
