Mika Sakari Saario March 31, 1968 - July 11, 2012 It is with great sadness and broken hearts that we announce the sudden and far too soon passing of Mika Saario. Mika was born in Loimaa Finland and lived in Prince George, B.C from the age of 3 Â½ . He was predeceased by his baby brother Markus and his father Sakari Saario. Survived by his first love, loving wife Patricia, his very much loved sons Erkki (Dana) and Jari, his mom Seija, sister Pia (Bruce), niece Tanja, brothers Sami (Nina), nieces Aila and Jersey, Riku (Chantel) and by numerous relatives in Finland and Sweden, and family and friends here in Canada. Last but not least his girls Jazz & Gurdy (turkey brains) and his newest additions Igg and Ugh. Mika was a hard worker with a loving heart who would give his shirt off his back to anyone needing help. He was a "Man with a Heart of Gold" and will be missed so much by all who knew and loved him. A viewing will be held at Assmans Funeral Chapel 1908 Queensway Street on Tuesday July 17, 2012 from 7pm-9pm followed by a memorial service Wednesday July 18, 2012 at 4pm at Blackburn Community Hall 2451 S Blackburn Road.
