Michael Osland

July 4, 1971 - May 15, 2018


On the afternoon of May 15, a hole was ripped out of the hearts of many.  A void was created that will never be filled when Michael, aka Mike or Misty, passed away at the home he was raised in with family at his side.

He was a very active child, always kicking a soccer ball against any wall he could find, or practicing juggling it.  There was no soccer in the South Okanagan, so his father, Norm, started the South Okanagan Soccer league.  This league started small, but grew to what it is today – a legacy that Norm and Michael leave behind. Michael played for the Pinnacles until a severe injury prevented him from playing at that high caliber.  During his adult years, he was still loving and playing the game.  He loved golf and would go out and play with family and friends, helping them with great patience, and maybe a bit of ridicule.  He loved being with his family, skiing in the winter and camping and being at the lake in the summer. He organized many barbecues in the summer for large groups of family and friends.   These get-togethers will be greatly missed.

His wife, Christine, and boys, Braelin and Colton, were the light of his life.  We will miss his sarcastic wit and smile, his kindness and thoughtfulness, but will never forget.  The broken hearts are too many to list – Christine (wife), Braelin and Colton (sons), Trish (mother), Norm (father, predeceased).  He was close to many aunts and uncles, cousins, his in-laws, as well as friends that were like family, his workmates at Summerland RV Centre and his soccer teammates.  A special thanks to Aunt Brenda and Uncle Don, Uncle Denis and Aunt Kim.  Their help was invaluable this last month.

A private celebration of life will be held.

Sorry for your loss and condolences to the family. It was only recently when I heard about Michael’s situation and was shocked and wish I had a chance to talk to him this winter.
I met him back in the late years of High School when I frequently came down to Oliver area from Penticton to hang out with friends in the area. He was always a nice guy and we would talk more as years went on mostly because we played soccer with or against each other or just seeing each other at the soccer fields because of the kids soccer. It always seemed like we both went out of our way to at least say hi or see how each were doing.
Michael is a genuine person that had an even temperament that his family could be proud of. He will truly be missed by all and wish the family all the best in dealing with this difficult time. RIP Michael!
