A Message from Bobby Orr

Michael Burgess was much more than simply one of the great tenors of all time. More important to me, Michael was a dear friend. He was someone who always supported our Hall of Fame and Parry Sound. I shall always remember his emotional rendition of “Danny Boy” that he graced us with at my father’s funeral. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Michael battled cancer courageously, continuing to sing while providing joy to every person he ever touched with his enormous talent. Today, we have lost a great Canadian.
