With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Dr. Michael Stubley on May 28, 2024, at the age of 67, with his loving wife and two daughters by his side.
Affectionately known as Pops, Mike leaves to mourn his wife of 41 years, Heather, daughters Nicole (Richard) Cox, and Samantha (Edis) Karamehic, and grandsons Everett, Dawson and Nolan. Mike was also a big brother to Colleen (Mark) Langridge, and leaves many friends and family from coast to coast to coast. The family has found comfort in knowing that he has been reunited with his youngest daughter, Georgia, his parents and other cherished family members.
Born in Deep River, Ontario, to Philip and Gwendolyne, his love for the outdoors started young. Living on the outskirts of town, the bush was his playground. At age five, his solo emergence from the forest along a gravel road with his trusty air rifle led to his first ride home in a police cruiser. His childhood winters were devoted to competitive ski racing, and he continued to promote skiing as a family passion throughout his life. Meeting his best friend and future wife while skiing was an added bonus. A career choice that exploited his sense of adventure with his limitless curiosity for the natural world was foreseeable at an early age. However, in later years, Mike admitted to enjoying some isolated beaches more than the snow and bugs associated with his career and earlier adventures.
Following stints living in Mississauga and Burlington throughout much of his public-school years, he embarked on a search for a rewarding and stimulating career at universities in Waterloo, Thunder Bay, and Sydney. He appeared to be navigating the alphabet with studies in (E)engineering, (F)forestry, and (G)geology. Mike found his way when he crossed paths with his university sweetheart (H)Heather, igniting a shared passion for adventure and travel that would shape their lives together. Moving to Sydney, Australia to complete his thesis in structural geology, Mike and Heather welcomed their first daughter, Nicole. After four years “down under” and with employment opportunities calling in northern Canada, Mike and his young family then moved to Yellowknife where they welcomed Samantha and Georgia. After establishing his own consulting venture, Stubley Geoscience Ltd., Mike and his family immersed themselves in the ski culture of Nelson, BC, before being drawn to an acreage outside of Cochrane, AB, that they ultimately called home for more than 20 years.
Throughout his career, Mike embarked on annual 2-3 month stints doing geological fieldwork, primarily within the NWT and Nunavut and almost exclusively north of the 60th parallel. Those who spent time in the field with him are undoubtedly aware of his insatiable curiosity, and his great passion for geology. He was a mentor to many, and truly loved everything about his bush life, including the close friendships he developed there.
His professional brilliance was matched only by his devotion to his family. With the flexibility afforded by his fieldwork, Mike was able to work from home for the remainder of the year. He was the epitome of a family man and the constant for every activity, pickup, and goodnight kiss. Core family memories were formed travelling, camping, sailing, skiing, and spending Saturday mornings at the barn. So much of him can be found in his daughters including his quiet confidence, his love for music, an obsession with diamonds and other shiny things, and his hunger for exploring the world.
Throughout his final decade, Mike was the most fun-loving Pops to his grandsons. He supported Everett at his riding shows, encouraged Dawson’s passion for landscaping, and had an endless array of funny faces that never failed to make Nolan giggle. He and Heather travelled the globe, consistently finding the most beautiful beaches. While in North America, they cruised the open road in their sprinter van with their bernedoodle, Charlie. His final months were spent celebrating his life with his family, catching up with forever friends, and enjoying the lovely life he built in the country.
