web_Daichendt, MichaelBorn June 21, 1948 in Salzburg, Austria. On Friday May 23, just before midnight, the Angels came for Michael. They wrapped him in their wings to mend his broken heart and free his gentle soul. They have taken him to a place where he can watch over the two people he loved so dearly, his children, Shawn and Jennifer. Michael was a devoted son to his mother Maria Daichendt of Windsor and his father, the late Michael Daichendt, a loving brother to his two sisters Katherine McLister of London and Sylvia Mousseau of Amherstburg. He cherished his nephew Brandon Mousseau of Windsor and his wife Vanessa, his nephew John McLister of Toronto and his wife Elyse and their daughter Claudia June, his niece Allison McLister Jackson of Vancouver and her husband Christopher, and his brothers-in-law Jack McLister and the late Cleveland Mousseau. He leaves behind many dear friends with whom he enjoyed the last years of his life. He loved to sit in the warmth of the sun and then dance the night away. He enjoyed working with his hands and driving his Mustangs. He was knowledgeable about politics and war history, and would debate these topics endlessly. He loved to talk and was an advocate for the victims of Parental Alienation. Every day he would wake up with the hope that his children would knock at his door. Although he grew progressively weaker during his long illness, he remained optimistic and died peacefully at Windsor Regional Hospital. Many thanks to Dr. Wasserman and the Intensive Care team and Dr. Saad and the Medicine team, as well as the many doctors, nurses and technologists for their compassionate care. Michael will be missed and remembered with love and joy. If you so desire, donation to Sparky’s Toy Drive would be appreciated by the family. Cremation was held.
