Also mourned by brothers David (Clare) and John (Ann), and sisters Phoebe (David Gowdy), Janet (Robert Whillans) and Catherine (Bruce Ripley). A cherished uncle, son-in-law, brother-in-law, fellow hiker, friend and colleague. Michael's life was driven by a strong sense of public duty, which he learned from his father and mother at an early age. His career is witness to this quality in both the public and private sectors. He shouldered heavy responsibilities, never seeking the limelight. This he balanced with strong and supportive love of his family, his friends and his church. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia to the late Vice-Admiral Herbert S. Rayner and the late Betty G. Rayner, Michael graduated from Carleton University, qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1969, and was elected a fellow of the Institute in 1982. Beginning in 1970, he worked for various arms of the Canadian federal government, served as Executive Secretary of the Independent Review Committee of the Office of the Auditor General, and was appointed Acting Auditor General of Canada from September 1980 to March 1981. He later became partner-in-charge of the Ottawa office of Price Waterhouse Associates (1982-85), Comptroller General of Canada (1985-87), and senior partner with Deloitte & Touche, Toronto (1988-92). Michael then served as President and CEO of the CICA from 1992-2001. The International Federation of Accountants, as well as provincial and international institutes, benefited from his dedicated involvement over these years. In semi-retirement, he sat on the Auditor General's Panel of Senior Advisors, and on the Board of the Audit and Accountability Committee of the Canadian Forces Personnel Support Agency. Michael was a member of the national executive of St. John Ambulance as Treasurer (1976-80) and Registrar (1982-92), and a Commander in the Order of St. John. An active member of the Anglican Church, Michael's spiritual life deepened during many wonderful years at St. Clement's Eglinton in Toronto, where he twice served as Warden. His move back to Ottawa in 2002 brought him to St. Matthew's parish, where he sang as a choirboy in his youth. A member of the Audit Committee of the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, Michael's faith and dedicated service to God shone through in all aspects of his life. Friends may visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod St., Ottawa, on Friday April 2, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and on Saturday, April 3, from 10-11:30 a.m. Funeral service at St. Matthew's Anglican Church, 217 First Ave., Ottawa on Saturday, April 3, at 2:00 p.m. Interment at Rupert Union Cemetery.
