Michael Ambrose Hooper&nbsp(Maikeli)

We are heartbroken to announce the sudden passing of our son & brother, Michael Ambrose Hooper.
Born in New Westminster and raised in Coquitlam, a piece of his heart was always with his Fijian family in Naisaumua Village, Tailevu. We were fortunate to visit our ancestral lands often and for Michael (affectionately known by his Fijian name, Maikeli) it was never just a “visit”, it always felt like coming home.
Anywhere he went, Michael made friends easily, he had a big, warm smile and could connect with people effortlessly.
Michael cherished his family and friends, he enjoyed his weekly coffee dates or grabbing fish and chips with his Dad. As a lifelong Manchester United fan, getting to see a match in the UK with his Dad was a highlight. Michael inherited his love of music from his beloved Mum, Brigitte, he was renowned among his friends for being a scene stealer at many a karaoke night. Michael will be remembered for his warm heart, his kindness and his humour.
Michael is predeceased by his mother, Brigitte Hooper, paternal grandparents Edgar and Phyllis Hooper and maternal grandparents Thomas and Emma Smith. He is survived by his father, Ashley Hooper, brother Marc, sisters Victoria and Sereana (Elliott), nephews Stephen, Max, Jack, Tevita, niece Sarah, Aunty Buna, cousin Karlson and his Yaca’s, Eli Maikeli and Austin Ambrose. He is also survived by his extended Fijian family.
Moce mada, Maikeli.
We will love and miss you for the rest of our days.
