5 Mike McCabe

A salute to The 62

Mike McCabe didn't write the words, he got them delivered across the city. His 15 years at the Tely paid off. Mike later moved from circulation manager to manager of the tabloid's fleet - a Cadillac and two VWs. He also coached the Sun's softball team. It was Mike's affable nature and driving skills that led him to become Doug Creighton's chauffeur and confidant. Mike was no stranger to the Sun's second-floor newsroom and receptionist Sharon caught his eye. For their 1991 wedding, Doug played chauffeur. On May 30, 2006, two years after mourning Doug's death, Mike suffered a fatal heart attack in his Fort Erie-area home. The father of four was 76. Every May 30, Sharon, his second wife, places an In Memoriam ad in the Sun. Not that Sun vets will soon forget Mike McCabe.

If you are a Toronto Sun Day Oner and have a bio or memories to share, please email with a photo.

If you are one of the hundreds of men and women in all departments who followed The 62 and want to share your memories of the Toronto Sun in the next few weeks, email TSF.

We want to give everyone the opportunity to mark the 40th anniversary.
