Michael Stacheruk

March 18, 1936 ~ May 30, 2023 (age 87) 87 Years Old


   It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Michael “Mike” Stacheruk of Coleman, Alberta on May 30, 2023 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, Alberta.  He was 87 years of age.

   Mike was born March 18, 1936, on the family farm near Invermay, Saskatchewan.  He left the farm at 16 to work in the construction industry.  Mike was passionate about his job, and loved discussing heavy duty equipment, moving dirt, coal seams etcetera.  The majority of his career was spent working for the Mannix group of companies, retiring in 1999 from Manalta Coal.

   He met his wife, Leone while working on the Gardner Dam near Elbow, Saskatchewan where they wed in 1962. The family moved several times following various construction projects in Alberta and B.C, settling in the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta in 1976.

   Mike loved his Labrador Retrievers and has rarely been without one in the past 40 years.  His latest companion, Tucker went most places with him and was wonderful company.

   May Mike’s family and friends gain comfort in knowing that his life’s work was well done, and that he will live on in precious memories.

   Left to cherish his memory are his three daughters, Michel (Gary) Collings, Terry (Ray) Mahieux and Susan (Craig Samuel) Stacheruk; his grandchildren, Michael Poxton, Meaghan (Mat) Pounder, Shawn Flannery, Terence (Aubrey) Flannery, Olivia Collings, Summer and Ryder Stacheruk-Fomradas, Stacy (Jason) Benson, Chad (Nicole) Mahieux;  his two sisters, Irene Honstein and Alice Simundson; his sisters-in-law, Margaret Mazerolle, Marilyn (Herb) Schmunk and Janice (Joanne) Baker; as well as  numerous nieces and nephews and many friends.  He was predeceased by his wife, Leone Stacheruk; his parents, Polly and George Stacheruk; his sisters, Anne Chretien and Mary Schrader; his brothers, John Stacheruk and Sydney Stacheruk;  and his grandchildren, Candace Collings and Travis Flannery.

   Mike’s family would like to thank Crowsnest Pass EMS and the nursing staff at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre for the kind and compassionate care given to him.

   A private family service will be held.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Pass Health Foundation “Greatest Need” (PO Box 455 Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0).  Condolences may be registered at
