Mike Schrader was born on September 8, 1951 in Olds, Alberta and passed away peacefully at home in Rossland on November 21, 2015.
He is predeceased by his parents Jim and Francis and sister Jo-Anne.
Mike is survived by his lovely wife Patti, brothers Steven and Kevin, sister Melanie and by his children Jo-Anne, Randi, Cory, Kathleen and Danno.
Mike was born in Olds Alberta where as a child he learned to love rodeo and dreamed of becoming a cowboy. He later moved to BC with his family, and as a young man began working for the Highways Department where he kept our roads safe until his retirement some 43 years later. As a dedicated husband and father, he was above all else a family man. He enjoyed camping, traveling, and making a new friend everywhere he went. Mike was a Schrader Nation legend; and those who knew him well, knew him to be a soft hearted, generous, and loving soul.
He will be sorely missed by all.
