Obituary for Michael Magee

MAGEE, Michael -
(October 11, 1929 – July 15th, 2011)
Our beloved Michael was an actor, author, comedian, TV host and political satirist. The creator of many past Canadian comedic characters and television shows such as Magee & Company and the Real Magee’s. He was the creator of his famous alter ego Fred C. Dobbs and the unforgettable voice of Cyril Sneer from the 1980’s hit cartoon The Racoons. Michael was a Thoroughbred horse racing host for CBC for more than 2 decades and he was the author of two renowned Canadian political satires, The Golden Age of B.S. and the Platinum Age of B.S.. Michael made his family and millions of Canadians smile and laugh. We will miss his captivating storytelling and his incredible wit. Michael is survived by his beloved partner of 26 years, Sally Hamilton, his sister-in-law Maggie Magee and his step children Matthew, Kelly and her husband Stephen and their children Monet, Quincy, Madeleine, Samantha and Hannah. And of course his very special cat Annie. Rest in peace Michael, we love you and will miss you dearly. The memorial for Michael Magee will be private.
