SEARS, Michael James, LCol (Ret’d), CD, RCASC, RCLS


It is with great sadness and love that we announce the passing of Mike, age 68, on Wed morning, January 3, 2024 at Westlock, AB.   He powered through the great discomfort and pain of cancer until he just couldn’t. He was loving, caring and brave, right to his last breath. Mike cared deeply for his wife, Maggie, and his only concern was that she would be okay when it was all done.

He leaves his wife Maggie, sons Geoffrey, Jacob (AJ) Sears, Nicholas (Courtney) Sikora, and Stephen (Calli) Sikora. Our family is a blended one, and he loved all four boys as his own. He leaves behind his grandchildren Kaiya and Seth Sikora, and Corinne, Nikki and Cody Sears.

Mike served in the CAF for 38 years. He loved the army and his country greatly. He was always a soldier first, and served with distinction all over the world. He had a great
understanding of what was happening in the world, and could be heard grumbling at the TV, when he didn’t agree with what was being said. There were many “F” bombs being dropped like punctuation.

He loved to golf and to have a beer with the guys from “The Wolf Pak” in Florida, and at the golf course in Namao. He loved a good joke and loved to tell one even more. His chuckles would get louder as he approached the punchline. He was an honest and authentic man. You always new where you stood, and if he was your friend, it was for life.  We know he loved our family, and we loved him. We miss him so much.

There will be a remembrance service at Creemore Legion, Branch 397, 27 Wellington St. W., Creemore, ON on 22 June from 1300 to 1800
