It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Mike Iles on Saturday, November 26th, after a very courageous battle with lung cancer at the age of 61. He fought hard to the end.

Beloved husband, soul mate and best friend to his wife Wendy (nee Davis). Also absolute best friend to his children Christopher and Tessa and his tractor shot gun rider, Dash. He will be greatly missed by Jennifer (Button) and his grandson and light of his life Joe. Son of Joe (predeceased 2011) and Jean Iles, brother to Pam (Rob) Burke and Joe (Myra) Iles. Son in law to Garnie and Wanda Davis (both predeceased) and brother in law to Jim (Bernie), John (Debi), Lonnie, Lockie (Denise) and Autumn (predeceased by Bill) Robinson. Much loved uncle and great uncle to many nieces and nephews.

Mike had a passion for the outdoors from fishing and hunting to four wheeling and snowmobiling. He met many people through his position as Service Manager at Curry Motors, Volunteer Fire Fighting and later as Fire Chief for Dysart et al.
