Borchardt, Michael Frederick
September 14, 1966 - March 5, 2022

It is with deep sadness that the family of Michael Frederick Borchardt announce his passing in the early hours of Saturday, March 5, 2022, in Surrey, BC.

Michael is survived by his parents, Horst and Sigrid Borchardt, his sister, Barbara Borchardt, and son Jacob Kelly-Borchardt and his daughter, Emily Kelly-Borchardt.

Michael was born in Vancouver, British Columbia on September 14, 1966. He was the youngest of two children and was raised in East Vancouver, BC. The family moved to Burnaby as his sister started high school in 1978.  It was here that Michael’s fascination with cars and trucks began, and he bought his first vehicle, a Ford Mustang.

In 2005, Michael met and married Lisa Kelly. Michael enjoyed camping, spending time with his children and gathering with his many friends over the years.  Michael was a family man. Whether it was being a good father to his 2 children, or in more recent years assisting with the care of his elderly parents.   Michael was passionate about family and cared deeply for those he loved.

Michael worked at Bulldog Bag for 34 years and was a hard worker. It was there that he made some lifelong friends and connections which he spoke fondly of. 

As an expression of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to the BC Cancer Agency or the Canadian Cancer Society.

A service will be held on Saturday, April 2nd at 12:30 pm at:

Peace Portal Alliance Church
15128 27b Avenue
Surrey, BC V4P 1P2

Following the service, you are invited to attend a Celebration of Life which will be held from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm at:

Michael is gone too soon but he will be forever in our hearts. The family invites you to share a personal message or memory. 


I am so very sorry for your loss. I only just found out about Mike’s illness and passing. It has been a number of years since I had been in contact with Mike but I want you to know that I have fond memories of Mike and he will not be forgotten. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi, There are no words to describe such a loss. I lost my oldest son 3 years ago and it is overwhelming the grief we, as parents, feel. Our children should never die before us. I loved talking to Mike , here at work, and was so shocked at the news. He was a kind and loving person that I will miss so much. Please know that my prayers are with you at this time of grief. Maureen Mitchell

Dear Horst, Sigrid, and Barbara, Nothing is more painful than the loss of a son or brother. Words may not suffice to express the heartfelt sorrow that we feel for the passing of Michael. We know what you are going through right now, please accept our deepest and most sincere condolences. Edda and Family
