Peyton Belgrave, his granddaughter; his brother Carlisle Belgrave and his wife Alana; his sister Joan Belgrave-Stewart and her husband Patrick; his nephews Jeremy and Michael Stewart; Ramotse Saunders and his niece Renate Saunders; his boxer Juno; and pet koi Maximus will all miss him greatly.
Michael Belgrave was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and Tobago, where he also received his secondary education at Trinity Boys High School and his bachelor’s degree in Chemical and Petroleum Engineering from the University of the West Indies with a First Class Honors distinction. He has always placed a strong emphasis on both his personal and professional development, and as a result, he relocated to Canada to pursue additional education.
There, he received a Ph.D. from the University of Calgary and an MBA from Lansbridge University. John was recognized multiple times for his outstanding work as an educator throughout his nine years of working at the University of Calgary. After that, he taught about the oil and gas sector in a variety of nations, including Russia, Libya, Colombia, and India, so that others may benefit from his extensive knowledge. John was a member of APEGA and had previously worked for Encana until he and his sons established their own business, Belgrave Oil and Gas.
His passion for study extended beyond the classroom to include an interest in the traditions of a variety of people. Because he enjoyed traveling with his family so much, they made it a habit to go away for the holidays every year, and they frequently went to Mexico. His most memorable trips were the Tanzanian safari he made with his family to mark their 25th wedding anniversary, and the journey he took with Thecla to the Galapagos Islands to honor their 30th wedding anniversary. Both trips took place in Tanzania.
