PINCOMBE, Micheal Linn
October 2, 1982 – September 24, 2023
Micheal Pincombe, lovingly known as Mike, unexpectedly passed away on September 24th, 2023, at the age of 40. He was a cherished son, father, and husband.
Born on October 2, 1982, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Mike spent his formative years in Eatonia, Saskatchewan. In pursuit of higher education, he moved to Calgary, Alberta, where he attended the University of Calgary. In 2006, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy. It was during his time at university that Mike crossed paths with the love of his life, Tamara. They exchanged vows in the picturesque mountains of Canmore in August 2014. The birth of their daughter, Brielle, in May 2015 brought immeasurable joy to their lives.
Mike dedicated 16 years of his professional career to Co-operators Insurance, where he excelled. When he wasn’t immersed in work, Mike could often be found outdoors, tending to his lawn, engaging in various projects, or masterfully smoking a brisket in his smoker. He delighted in gathering around a campfire with loved ones, sharing tales and laughter, all while enjoying a cold beer. Being a devoted father to Brielle brought him immense happiness. His love for his dogs, Zorro, Charlie, and Josie, was evident. A helpful and caring individual, Mike was always quick to lend a hand, whether it was watering flowers or assisting with extensive renovation projects.
Survived by his wife Tamara Pincombe, his daughter Brielle Pincombe, his mother Barbara Pincombe, numerous extended family members, friends, and co-workers, Mike’s presence will be deeply missed. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Annie and Percy Pincombe.
A commemorative service will be held on Wednesday, October 11th, at the Bowness Scout and Lions Hall, followed by a reception. Attendees are invited to share memories, stories, and enjoy comforting food and beverages.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to be made to a charity of choice. Mike held great admiration for the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History and the CIBC Run for the Cure, although there are countless deserving causes that could benefit from support.
