Obituary Overview

In Loving Memory


With broken hearts and devastated spirits, we share with you our significant loss with the tragic passing of our beloved family; Robert “RJ” Jorge Sears, 30, Michelle Elaine Robertson, 28, and beautiful children Madison “Maddy” Anne- Marie Sears, 11, Robert “Ryder” Sears, 8, Jaxson Robertson, 4, and Collin “CJ” Justin Raymond Sears, 3, on Sunday, September 12, 2021.

RJ was the loving companion of Michelle; father of Madison, Ryder, CJ and step father to Jaxson. RJ is survived by his parents Robert “Tony” Sears and Angel (Amon) Sears; sister Brittany Sears (David Hollis); grandparents Bob and Margaret Sears as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. Predeceased by grandparents Howard and Dianne Amon.

Michelle, mother of Madison, Ryder, Jaxson and C.J.; she is survived by her parents Robert Braby and Tracey Robertson (Donald Reid); sisters Shannalee (Paul) Lines, Brittany Braby and Crystal Robertson; grandparents Gary and Diane Robertson and Bob Braby and Sherry Dixon, 4 nieces, 2 nephews, numerous cousins and extended family.

Jaxson is survived by his loving dad, Tyler Allen; grandmother Colleen Allen (Rick Gallagher) and great grandparents Donna Richard and Lois Allen; aunt Renee Allen (Brandon McCormick) and uncle Bryce Allen (Beth MacNeil- Steliga) and extended family. Predeceased by grandfather Ronald Richard.

RJ was an employee of Gordon Food Service for 3 years. He was a hard worker who loved hunting, especially at his gramp’s camp, fishing and enjoyed sports. Above all, he was a dedicated father who always made the children his top priority.

Michelle “Seashell” was a graduate of the nursing program at NSCC and had recently started working at Gables Lodge. She knew what it meant to be a friend and was loved by all. However, the role she excelled at was being a mother and she adored her children.

“Chatty Maddy” was a grade 6 student, attending Cumberland North Academy, she adored her little brothers and was the BEST big sister. She enjoyed animals, drawing, sports and beanies. Maddy was very social and was always excited to spend time with her friends.

“Spider Ryder” was a grade 3 student at Cumberland North Academy. Always active, you could find this little man doing cartwheels anywhere and everywhere. Although a little shy, he had a curious mind and was always asking questions. He was his daddy’s “mini me” following closely in his every footstep.

“Action Jaxson” was very excited to just start pre-primary at Cumberland North Academy. He was so wise for someone his age, an “old soul” and very outgoing. Like most boys, he was busy. You could often find him dancing to his favourite tunes and playing with his motorbikes. He was his daddy’s best friend, his boii.

CJ was the baby of the family who had the cutest ears, often referred to as his “wings” and could usually be found with a soother in his mouth. He had a unique place to hide things (his diaper), so if anyone was missing something small enough, that is where it may be found! Although the smallest, he already tried hard to be a “big boy”. He looked up to, tried his best to keep up with, and would often be his big brothers’ shadow.

Everyone in the family were Montreal Canadiens fans except Action Jaxson who went his own way and became a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs. This would create some intense family moments. Family moments were what this family enjoyed the most. They enjoyed being together, laughing, playing and living life to the fullest.

We will miss them and the joy and love they brought to our lives.

A private family viewing will be held at Campbell’s Funeral Home, Amherst, 902-667-9906.
