Mike was appointed to the OPP on April 28, 1997 and served at Downsview Detachment before being transferred to Port Credit Detachment.
The death of Michael Siydock was a shock to Port Credit Detachment members. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family. Mike was an exemplary Officer; he was a genuinely caring person and took that extra step to help people.
“ Mike was a devoted family man who died doing what he loved to doing,” commented Liz Siydock in a news release.
Mike took his duties as a police officer very seriously and was an excellent worker. Mike continuously carried out his duties to the highest standard and he expected the same of all those who worked with him. Mike was an excellent officer and certainly an asset to the OPP. He was a man whose love for his job as a police officer was only surpassed by his love for his family.
On November 26, 2004, Constable Siydock was the first officer to respond to a serious motor vehicle collision on Highway 401 near Milton. A vehicle had rolled down a steep embankment and the occupants of the vehicle were trapped. Constable Siydock made every effort to aid the victims and in doing so suffered a major heart attack and died while on duty. He was a seven year veteran and is survived by a wife and three children.
He will be greatly missed by his brother officers at Port Credit Detachment and throughout the OPP.
His wife, Elizabeth and children, Donald, Stephen and Laura, survive Mike.
