Michael Eric Hillier or “Mike” as he was known by to most, was born in St. Anthony on April 23rd, 1986 to Barry and Angela Hillier of Goose Cove. Michael had a twin brother Matthew. They were inseparable from birth and this bond continued throughout their entire lives. Michael spent the first thirteen years of his life in Goose Cove tormenting so many people but he definitely left his love and wittiness in the hearts of all his childhood friends. Michael moved to CBS in 1998 with his family here he made another multitude of life-long friends. He was like a magnet, everyone he come into contact with just clung to him. In 2001 Michael moved to Roddickton with his family where he lived for four years. It was there that he met Melissa for the first time as a high school friend. In 2005 Michael moved to Fort McMurray where his brother Matthew was living, they were only apart for a year. He lived with Matthew and Tara (Matt’s wife) where he drove her completely crazy all the time. She often quoted “that she felt like she was married to both of them at times.” Michael couldn’t have asked for a better sister-in-law. Michael worked with various contractors and started his electrical apprenticeship in 2008. He received his journeyman’s in 2012 and started working for Syncrude in 2013. In 2014, Michael and Melissa met again which was the beginning of his new family and on March 25, 2016 they welcomed their pride and Joy, baby Cali Angeline; she was his shining star. He was always a happy guy but the last couple of years he had a twinkle in his eye and a permanent smile on his face. His dream of having his own family had been fulfilled. Michael Loved spending time with all his friends and family- and hunting and fishing with his Dad, Matthew, and Jake, He especially loved tormenting and joking with his only sister Mandy and brother-in-law Marcel.
