Death Notice

COATES, Michael (Mike):
On October 8, 2021, passed away peacefully at Christchurch Hospital after a long "stubborn" battle with his health; aged 77 years. Much loved father of Gaynor, Nikki and Glen and father-in-law of Geoff. Special Grandad of Kate Ocean and friend and former husband to Janet and Lynda. And to Bella, his loyal four-legged companion. Loved son of the late Rosie and Harry Coates, only brother of the late Peter and loved brother-in-law of Maureen. A loved Uncle to Suzie, Allie and Tracy and close friend to many. A special mate to Don and Tony. His zest for life, his ability to talk to anyone and his appreciation of a good bottle of red wine will be sorely missed. Heartfelt thanks to Dr: Paul O'Gorman and the team at Halswell Health for their wonderful care and support. In accordance with Mike's wishes a private cremation has been held. Messages to the Coates family c/- PO Box 111-01, Christchurch 8443.
