Kitchener, Ont. – Michael Anthony Pollice, founder of All-Terrain Drilling in Waterloo, Ont., passed away suddenly on Feb. 5, 2017, at the age of 62 following a wonderful weekend of snowmobiling on the French River with his son and friends.

Mike founded All-Terrain Drilling Limited in 1979, which he operated until 2008. “Drilling was his passion and he cherished the relationships and friendships he made over the years,” said a notice posted by the family. “Since his retirement, he and Sandra enjoyed their time at Sparrow Lake and making memories with their children and grandchildren,” the notice said.

“We are shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Mike Pollice,” wrote the Ontario Ground Water Association in a message to members. “A good man, a good driller, and a good friend to the OGWA; Mike will be sorely missed. On behalf of the Members, Board of Directors, and Staff of the OGWA, our thoughts and prayers are with Sandy and the entire Pollice family at this most difficult of times.”


Family will receive relatives and friends from 1-3pm and 5-7pm on Monday, Feb. 13, at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick St., Kitchener (519-749-8467). As expressions of sympathy, donations to KidsAbility would be appreciated by the family.
