Michael "Papa" Jardine
It is with peace that we the family announce that Michael "Papa" Jardine of New Maryland, NB, bravely passed away surrounded by love on November 5, 2017.
Papa is survived by his loving wife and best friend Jane of 48 years; daughter Kim and her fiancé Paul; son Kevin and wife Tammy; and beloved granddaughters Issie and Gaby.
Papa left a footprint on the hearts of everyone he met and will always be remembered having the biggest smile, being full of laughter, and giving the worlds best hugs. Papa loved road trips in his convertible mustang, time with his motorcycle family, chicken wings and ice-cream.
A special thank you to the incredible staff of Doctors, Nurses, Support Staff, and Volunteers in the Palliative Care Unit at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital for their kind and compassionate care not only of our dear Papa but of the family as well.
The family asks that no flowers be sent and donations will be appreciated online (or by cheque) to the Chalmers Foundation at http://www.chalmersfoundation.com. There is a space "reason for donation" in which you may specify "FMC Toy Ride for Child Life Unit in memory of Michael Jardine". The Fredericton Motorcycle Club (FMC) Toy Ride is an annual event that Papa was involved in for over 30 years and close to his heart.
There will be a Celebration of Life on November 18, 2017, from 4 pm to 8 pm, at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 4 located at 199 Queen Street, Fredericton, NB, (506) 460-8732.

Papa you will FOREVER be in our hearts. We love you.
