This month saw longtime Toronto Star photographer Michael Stuparyk call it a career.
Mike, who came to the Star in 1982 via the Mississauga News, loved the art of telling visual stories so much that he worked into his 67th year.
We took a look through the archives and found some photos to share with readers as say farewell to Mike.
We miss ya Stupper!
