DOHM, William Michael (Mike), Maj (Ret’d), CD, Log-Fin, RCN, RCAF

DohmIt is with much sadness that we announce Mike’s death on 21 March 2024. Mike was born in Halifax, N.S. and passed peacefully at Victoria Hospice.

Mike is survived by Denyse, his wife of 25 years, and daughter Song Fei; daughter Michelle Dohm Sullivan (Patrick), and granddaughter Maya; daughter Karen Griffiths (Joseph) and grandson Simon. Mike is also survived by his stepchildren: Karen Quirk, Christine Reece, Lynda Reece, Michael Reece and their families; Mike was predeceased by his first wife Sandra MacDonald Dohm (1998).

Mike joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1963 and served in the CAF with integrity to 1994, retiring as a RCAF Finance Officer with the rank of Major. Highlights of his career included postings to Gypsumville and Europe. Mike was proud to have served. Subsequently, he enjoyed working at the B.C. Ministry of Forests (1994-2003).

Mike was a very caring, thoughtful person who gave generously of his time and diverse knowledge and skills, from preparing family members’ tax returns to guiding his children and stepchildren, always with a respect for, and encouragement of their interests. Mike lived his life with a quiet devotion to the Catholic faith. Mike attended Oaklands Elementary, St. Louis College, Belmont High School and UVic (B.A.).

Mike’s greatest joy was having been a father and stepfather to seven children. He appreciated the phone calls, texts, and visits with all his children in the last two weeks of his life. Their love is a testament to, and reflection of, his love for them.

Mike had many hobbies and interests: short-wave radio (he contacted 127 countries!), growing vegetables and fruit trees, and camping. Mike’s daughter Karen recalls camping trips with her dad and her sister, and from these experiences her love of nature grew. Michelle has childhood memories of travelling in Europe, viewing old castles and landmarks, which led her to share her father’s love of history. Mike’s daughter Song Fei recalls, “Dad taught by example and guided me through all obstacles that I have faced.”

There will be a service for Mike in July when family and friends will gather to remember and celebrate his life. There will be a notice in the newspaper in advance.
