In Memory of Michel “Mike” Belliveau
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mike Belliveau, at the age of 58, on April 10, 2023. He passed away peacefully in the Ottawa General Hospital following a courageous battle with cancer.
He leaves to mourn his loving wife of 31 years, Lori (Compagnon) Belliveau. He also leaves his sister, Josette Belliveau (Mike Poirier) and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews as well as many close friends in Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces.
He was predeceased by his parents, Eugene Belliveau and Aurore (Leger) Belliveau.
Mike enjoyed a celebrated career with RBC, as an incredible mentor and leader to many across the Atlantic provinces and Ontario, leaving many with gratitude for the time he spent with them.
He was passionate and kind with a great sense of humour and not one to shy away from the occasional practical joke.
Two viewings are scheduled on Friday, April 14, 2023 from 2:00-4:00pm and 7:00-9:00pm at the Heritage Funeral Complex, 1250 Trim Rd, Orleans ON. www.heritagefh.ca

A special thank you to Dr. Patrick Leclair and Dr. Nadine Touma for their unconditional support and friendship during this difficult journey.
A heartfelt thank you to the Orleans Palliative Care doctors; Dr. Vincent, Dr. Plaintive and Dr. Rioux for their compassionate care.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society www.cancer.ca or the Hospice Care Ottawa www.hospicecareottawa.ca

Lori, my heart breaks for you! Not many couples remember to celebrate each other daily like you and Mike. I can’t believe that this happy, larger than life man that meant so much to all of us is gone. He will be remembered by so many for his zest for life, intense love of friends and family, love of fun, laughter and practical jokes and his loyalty and belief in the company to which he gave his life. He lives on through memories cherished by all. My heart, my hugs and my prayers are with you, Lori
My deepest condoleances for your lost , mike was a warm person with his staff and you also at christmas visit to branch. All my love to you and family during that difficult time
My sincere condolences to Lori. Mike has left an impression on so many and will be missed. I have such wonderful memories of Mike and Lori coming to our community Fair in Avonmore, a few years, to be a part of the Opening Ceremonies and present a donation cheque for RBC Day of Service events I had during the year and he and Lori would participate in the event at the Fair. He told me they loved country fairs, agriculture education and RBC contributing to the community. I was so proud to introduce him and Lori to the other Fair directors and family. Rest in Peace Mike.
So sorry for your lost Lori please accept our sincere condolences our thoughts and prayers are with you 🙏🙏🙏❤️

The road through grief is rocky and there is no way around it, over it or under it. May God walk side by side with you holding you close in his embrace as you mourn the loss of your loving husband. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Peace & Hugs,
Mike was a wonderful person, someone to be admired and inspired by. He has influenced some many lives, mine included, in such meaningful ways, more than he probably realized. His bright eyes and smile were contagious, I am thankful that I had the opportunity to know him. My thoughts are with you Lori.
Words can’t express my heartfelt condolences to you and family. Mike was an amazing Leader and friend. I am honoured to have had the privilege of working with Mike.

This is such sad news. Mike was a wonderful man who truly cared about the people he worked with, myself included. He left a wonderful legacy with RBC given all that he contributed over his many years with us. Thoughts and prayers are with his family and especially Lori during this challenging time.
My heartfelt condolences , Lori. I am shocked to learn of this news of my RBC colleague who was a genuine, intelligent, and caring professional.
Our deepest sympathies for your lost. I am so sad to hear that Mike passed away. I met him over 35 years ago in a class at U de M. and we became friend right away. He was a kind person, always ready to laugh and enjoy life. We met again few years ago and I could see that he was still that sane great guy.
I can only imagine the pain you feel right now It was easy to see how deeply you loved each other. We won’t be able to go to the funeral home as we are outside the country at the moment but know that we will be thinking of you both. Take good care of you. xo

Mike was a much-loved colleague. He was known for being a caring leader.
He touched so many.
He will be dearly missed by his RBC family. Tu vas nous manquer mon cher Mike.
Lori….my deepest sympathies to you and family.
Mike was an exceptional human being…I loved our regular chats about travel during his time at the George & Hunter branch in Peterborough.
His sense of humour will be something I will remember.
May he rest in peace and may you find peace in cherishing all of your memories with him.
Mike, we have been friends for many years but have not seen each other often. Despite this we have always kept in touch and maintained a very deep bond. I will never forget you, your kindness, concern and always ready to share a laugh and your home when I came for a visit. You are now without pain and suffering and will watch over dear Lori and you will be in my thoughts forever. I have become a better person for knowing you, RIP dear Mike!
Lori, So sorry to hear of your loss! Know that your friends are thinking about you at this sad time and saying a prayer!
So sorry to hear about the loss of your husband. You are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time!
My deepest condolences Lori, to you as well as your Family and Friends.
Mike was so well respected and, as the lovely writing on this ‘wall’ states, a mentor, leader and friend to many…including myself.
I’ll always remember your time in Peterborough and the positive effect you both had on this community.
Hoping you find great strength in those around you through. My thoughts are with you now and moving forward.
