PONIC, Michael Joseph
March 18, 1970 – June 23, 2012
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Mike Ponic at the age of 42 after a brave and hard-fought battle with brain cancer. Adoring, loving husband and best friend to Sheri (nee Corriveau). Cherished dad to Jack. Beloved son of Elizabeth “Betty” Wintonyk and the late Joseph Ponic (2008). Treasured brother to Pamela. Dear son-in-law to Joe & Regina Corriveau and brother-in-law to Gary & Terri Corriveau. Mike was a good friend to many and that was certainly obvious through all the love and support we have received during this difficult journey. Mike worked hard his whole life, achieving his MBA from the University of Windsor and his BA in Economics and Sport Management at Laurier. He had a great love of sports, especially baseball and his beloved Cleveland Indians – Go Tribe!! A special thank you to Dr. Flood, Dr. Shamisa, Dr. Morasutti, the 8th floor staff and Rehab Department at Hotel Dieu, and the doctors and nurses at Malden Park for their wonderful care of Mike and compassion to our family. Mike was a special person who touched many lives. He will be sadly missed and forever in our hearts. In Mike’s memory, donations may be made to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
