Captain Gary Saxby

It is with great sadness that I share with you the news that our squadron’s Deputy Commanding Officer, Captain Gary Saxby, passed away peacefully Friday night as a result of an ongoing medical issue – this was not a Covid related incident. .  Captain Saxby dedicated a significant part of his life to the cadet program having recently completed 42 years of service and his loss will have a significant impact on our community.

The sudden loss of a role model,  colleague, and friend is a heartbreaking reminder of the importance of looking after ourselves and each other. If there is a need to talk about this I would encourage you to do so.  I would also like to make you aware that as parents and guardians of cadets the Canadian Forces Member Assistance Program is readily available to all cadets should there be a need for assistance. The CFMAP contact number is  1-800-268-7708.  The Kids Help line is another avenue available for support  by calling 1-800-668-6868 or texting 686868
