In Loving Memory ~

It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Michael (Mike) Robert Procter, 79, of 150 Mile House, BC on February 6, 2024.

In North Vancouver, BC, Mike was the first of three children born to Mary and Peter Procter. Mike grew up in Williams Lake, BC after the family moved there in 1951.

After graduating school, he followed in his father's footsteps by becoming an Electrician. Working for his father's company, Procter Electric, he worked throughout the Cariboo-Chilcotin and Mike and his father were instrumental in creating novel systems to generate electricity at remote ranches and locations throughout the region.

He moved on to working in the industrial sector and became highly skilled in his trade. High in demand, he worked in the construction of new sawmills, and in various plants, all throughout BC. Later, he worked at several local sawmills and contracted throughout the area.

Over all those years, Mike made many friendships that endured for the rest of his life.

He went on to marry Cheryl Midnight and they had two children, Chris and Jody.

Mike had a penchant for fast cars, nice trucks, and fine guns. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and classic car restoration. He traveled to horse shows throughout BC, AB and briefly the US, winning many trophies, with their champion Arabian show horse, Star-Sirza.

In the mid-80's, Mike met his life partner Betty Johnson and in the 90's, they settled in the 150 Mile area. Mike and 2 good friends purchased the 150 Mile Hotel, a rich piece of history in the Cariboo. Together they revived it into the 150 Mile Roadhouse & Pub. For years the establishment was a notable and lively gathering place, where many good times were had.

Mike was a hardworking, generous man who was always willing to help his friends and family.

He had a great sense of humour, he was always up to something, and he was entertaining to be around. Throughout his life, he was fortunate to have made many friends, many acquaintances, and to have many great stories to tell. Mike will be sorely missed by his family and friends.

Mike was predeceased by his parents, Mary and Peter, and his stepfather John Ailport.

He is survived by his life partner Betty, brother Chris (Sherri), sister Andrea, son Chris (Jenica), daughter Jody (Joey), stepson Bryan (Dawn), three nieces (Susie, Mia and Alison), five grandchildren (Jayden, Utah, Talon, Pyper and Keyfer), and many friends.

Mike wished for his ashes to be spread at his favorite mule deer hunting spot, a beautiful area overlooking the Fraser River.

At Mike's request, there will be no service.
