November 19, 1946 – Esterhazy, SK
July 19, 2014 – Calgary, AB
Myron William Sikora beloved husband of Carol passed away peacefully on the morning of Saturday, July 19, 2014 at the Calgary South Health Campus.
Myron Sikora’s life was spiritually rich, and his adventurous demeanor was influential to all that he met. He ventured away from the farm in Esterhazy, SK as a young man to pursue his dream of being an airline pilot. Starting in Pembroke, ON and then moving to Halifax, NS and eventually settling in Calgary, AB, Myron worked for Pem Air, Eastern Provincial Airlines, Canadian Pacific Airlines, Canadian Airlines and Air Canada. This became not only his career but his passion for the next thirty years. Even beyond his job, Myron travelled extensively with his family across the globe, including numerous destinations across the United States, Australia, the Caribbean and Europe. He enjoyed being close to the mountains and frequently visited several ski hills during the winter, and in the summer you could often find him riding his bike in Fish Creek Park or driving his Mustang convertible. He loved to attend many social outings, and it was not uncommon for him to be at the community dance or performing with his accordion group, Fess and Friends. Myron’s sense of humor was unmatched, and his contagious laugh would light up any room. Myron was a devoted Catholic, a talented musician (also playing the piano), a member of the Knights of Columbus, a volunteer with Inn from the Cold and an avid Calgary Stampeders and Calgary Flames fan. Most of all, Myron will be remembered as a kind, caring and loving husband and father.
Besides his loving wife Carol, Myron is survived by his children Curtis (Erin), Jason, and Gregory (Lesley); grandchildren Andrew and Rachel; brother Dale; and his sister Merle (Mark).
