Sean Studer passed away unexpectedly in Whistler BC on Sunday January 7, 2007 and this tragedy leaves us with a real sense of incomprehensible loss and we grieve with his family.

Sean was born in Calgary on November 17th 1972. He lived in Kelowna throughout his youth and in 1994 moved to Grand Cayman to pursue his deep passion for scuba diving, working as a certified diving instructor. Later, he returned to Calgary in 1997, completing a degree in Geomatics Engineering at the University of Calgary. Sean joined the McElhanney Land Surveys’ Calgary Branch in 2000 where he earned his commission as an Alberta Land Surveyor in 2006. He was proud to be a land surveyor, contributing to a number of initiatives by sitting on committees such as the ALSA Public Relations Committee and the Executive Committee for Chapter 48 of the IRWA.

Sean was very proud of his family. He deeply cherished the relationships he built with his friends and colleagues and was known for living his life to its fullest. Sean will be remembered for his truly unforgettable personality, his zest for life and his untiring will to help others. We will dearly miss his generous and gentle spirit, his outstanding sense of humour, his compassion and commitment to causes greater than himself, his genuine smile and his laugh which he was so quick to share. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with Sean’s family and those he touched in his life.
