Dear Diane and Family. Our deepest condolences to you and your family Diane. I didn't know he was sick but my thoughts and prayers are with you. He was such a sincere community man and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
All my love,
To Mike's family and friends,
I had the pleasure of knowing Mike for about 15 years through our work with Coast Guard. He was first a colleague and then my manager.
The thing that I wanted you all to know was how much I admired Mike. He was a natural leader. He was always quick with the wit. But most importantly, he had an enormous heart. He genuinely cared about the people he worked with. I learned a lot from Mike over the years. It was a chore to keep up with his endless energy and his passion for work, but he made everyone around him a better person ...
He will be very much missed.
To Diane, Nicholas, Nelson and all the Kehoe family:
We know that you have been deeply moved by the loss of Mike. During this trying time in your lives, you are in our thoughts and in our hearts. Hoping that time will slowly erase the pain in your hearts and unveil the memory of happy times.
Dave & Ann Marie (currently out-of-province)
My deepest sympathies on Mike's passing. Mike was an incredible leader, mentor and most importantly a true friend. He will be missed.
Helen and I were so sad to hear of Mike's passing. He was courageous in his battle as he was throughout his life. I remember him as a great teammate when we played hockey together, fun to play golf with, and just an overall good guy. Helen and I offer our sincere condolences to Dianne and the entire family.
Dear Dianne & family,
Our deepest sympathies on the passing of Mike. He, as well as the family, didn't shy away from his long and courageous battle. May God bless during these very difficult times !
Dear Dianne, Nicholas, Nelson and members of the Kehoe/Keating Family, my heart goes out to all of you at this difficult time. Please know that you have been and will remain in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Diane and family... please know that my heart is with each and everyone of you. I know the journey you just went through, and the new journey you are about ro embark on, without Mike. Celebrate his life. Keep his spirit alive. Love and blessings to all. RIP Michael
Sorry to hear about the passing of Mike. Condolences from Linda and I to the family. I have many fond memories of shared experiences with a great friend. He taught me and those who knew him, the importance of an all out effort no matter the endeavour. You were challenged to be a better leader, more humble volunteer and kinder human being by his example. He touched many lives and will be welcomed with a huge loving embrace from Jesus. Eternal rest to a good friend.
I just learned of the passing of Mike Kehoe. Although I knew of his valiant battle I take solace in knowing that I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with him to support me while he was at CCG HQ Ottawa for a 4-month assignment. He was dedicated, helpful and just a nice guy. He received a well deserved letter of appreciation from the Director of Marine Civil Infrastructure for his outstanding support while he was at NDHQ.
You will be sadly missed.
Bravo Zulu Mike

Diane Nick & Nelson. So sorry to hear about Mike’s passing. Due to other commitments we are unable to attend the funeral We will always cherish the time spent with your family at the arenas throughout the province.

I am very sorry to hear of Mike's passing. I had the privilege of working with Mike over the past several years. I admired his positive energy, team spirit and commitment to getting things done. I considered Mike to be a coworker and a friend. He will be greatly missed. My condolences.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families at this time. Jane & Warren Mauger
I worked for Mike in the Coast Guard for only a short time, but the impression he made on me will follow me throughout my career and life. He had a way of projecting such confidence that it was impossible not to have confidence in yourself in his presence. He will be greatly missed by all of us as a leader, co-worker, mentor and friend. My sincere condolences to all of you in this difficult time.
To Diane and family. I am so sorry to hear of Mikes passing. I worked with Mike at the Canadian Coast Guard and witnessed his passion and drive for his work. Mike loved a good argument but we were always able to smile and laugh at the end of the ‘discussion’ . He was an awesome co-worker and will be missed. My condolences.
My sincerest condolences on your loss. I had the pleasure to work with Mike over the last few years at Marine House. He was a great guy.
I am very sorry to hear about Mike's passing. His presence will be missed in the Coast Guard family and his legend will live on for years to come.
We went on a business trip to Ottawa together, when I first started working with Mike. I could not keep up with him. He walked so fast I literally had blisters on the bottoms of my feet to try and walk as fast as Mike. I had to throw my shoes away when I got home, I wore them out. ( Well, Mike made me wear them out.) I told him about it and he laughed!
Condolences to his family and friends.
So sorry to hear the sad news of Michael's passing. Our thoughts prayers and hugs are with you all at this sad time. Love from Lenny and Lynne Poirier
Please accept our condolences. As you mourn Mike's loss, we hope you are able to share memories with each other this week that will celebrate his life as well. Thinking of you.
Our most sincere condolences go out to you Dianne, Nicholas, Nelson, their families
and the Kehoe family on Michael’s passing.
We will keep you all in our prayers in this most difficult time.
Dianne and family
It was an honored to have known and worked with Mike. He was one of a kind with a warm and beautiful heart. He will be truly missed and forever in my memories. Please accept my most heartfelt condolences.
Sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with you and your family
Diane and family , we wish to express our deepest condolences to you and Mike’s family. We will keep you in our prayers.
So sorry to hear of the passing of Mike. He was a great man who helped move me along in my career with the CCG. Sending thoughts and prayers to the family in this time of grief.
God bless you, Diane and family, especially Nathan, who Mike bragged about endlessly. Mike was a great personal friend of mine, as you know. He was also one of the best Coast Guard employees I have ever met. His work ethic was above reproach, working hard every minute of the day, ever mindful of the personal side of things and taking the time to coach, inspire and encourage the employees who reported to him. Mike cared so much for Coast Guard and Coast Guard cares very much for Mike and his contribution to marine safety as a result of his hard work. We have been missing Mike since he got sick and we will continue to miss him dearly, as you, your family and your circle of friends will. See you Saturday
Very sorry for your loss Diane, it is a tough road to walk. I hope you find strength and comfort with your family.
Diane and family
So sorry for your sadness with Mikes passing. We had good times working
together on many occasions around the province in his service boat,vehicles

I just want to send my condolences to the Family,& may he RIP.
We both want to send words of comfort to Diane, Nicolas, and Nelson, and their families at time. Mike will always be in their thoughts and heart!

Diane and Family
I am deeply sorry for you loss.
I had the pleasure of working with Mike, over his CCG career.
I will truly miss him.
Mike and I worked together on many projects for CG throughout the years
while he was at the canal.
I always liked to stop in and "catch up" with him especially if the Leafs had even a glimmer of hope making the play offs.
Later as manager of MCI, his passion for Nav Aids really shone through.
My condolences to his family and friends.
Sorry to hear about your loss of a good man
I am very sorry to learn of Mikes passing, I met Mike in the first few months he started with CCG and I was impressed with his work ethic and the knowledge he brought with him .
Over the years I worked with Mike I came to know how important his family was to him and also his corner of Cape Breton.
Dear DIanne, Nicholas, Nelson, and Family,

I was so sorry to hear about his passing but was grateful that his suffering is over! He will be greatly missed in the community and especially at our annual baseball draft which he was leading until recently. Knowing his fiercely competitive nature, I hope being in first place gave him some comfort and provided a source of humour in this final months.
