Dr. Michael H. Chernick DDS, passed away peacefully with friends by his side as he slipped away the morning of December 31st.

Michael as he is best known to his friends and family had a soft spoken voice and calm demeanour that put everyone he knew and met at ease, but lurking behind that devilish grin was a profound mind and a witty sense of humor.  He could give anyone a good challenge in a battle of Puns contest.

His love for travel and adventure took him to many places in the world, Italy being a favourite for both Cappuccino and Gelato.  Winter was a particular favourite time due to his love of Alpine skiing.  He never met a mountain he wasn’t willing to conquer.

He kept his athletic sleek physique throughout his life, eating well, exercising, hiking, cycling, sailing, waterskiing to name a few of his regular activities. Recently Michael found great joy in making various stews in his slow cooker, however he really enjoyed baking although he rarely shared his masterpieces.

Michael has been blessed with a lot of incredible people in his life and together they all made his last days a beautiful experience.  He will be dearly missed.
