Gordon Michael Francis Ginter

Sydney Mines, NS


With shattered hearts, we regret to announce the sudden passing of Michael Ginter on July 31, 2019. He was born on July 14, 1986 to proud parents, Gordon and Star Dawe. Michael grew up in Little Bras d’Or, where he couldn’t go far without his little sister chasing after him.

Michael became a sports fan at an early age. He cheered the loudest for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Blue Jays. Michael was an avid baseball player, scoring home-runs and pitching in winning games. Michael excelled in anything he set his mind to, as he got older this was fishing and darts. He loved to have a good laugh and a game of darts, especially with his good buddy Jamie Whitty.

Michael was always a hard worker. He started working as a lobster fisherman when he was 16 years old. He moved to Fort McMurray where he resided and worked for 10 years. Michael moved home to Cape Breton 2 years ago and resided with family.

Michael leaves behind his parents Gordon and Star Dawe; sister Starlette (Dougie Holloway); paternal grandmother Bridget Dawe; girlfriend Ashley Woodfine and special daughter Ayla; Uncles Danny (Marcella) Ginter, Clifford (Eileen) Ginter; Jackie (Peggy) Ginter, Jason (Trish) Ginter; Jason (Chantelle) Dawe; and John Dawe; Aunt and godmother Shauna (Sam) Gracie; Aunts Leisa (Jimmy) Rose and Heather Chaisson; along with many cousins and friends who will miss him dearly.
