Dr. Jeffrey Sikorski

June 22, 1953 — June 16, 2024

Dr. Jeffrey Sikorski, 70, of Colorado Springs, passed away far too soon on June 16, 2024. 

Jeff was born in Breckenridge, MN on June 22, 1953. He graduated from Fairmount High School in 1971. He earned a Doctor of Optometry degree from Pacific University in 1982, followed by a Master of Science in Clinical Optometric Management in 1993.

Jeff enjoyed fishing, skiing, hunting, auctions, estate sales, spending time with his loved ones, telling jokes and pulling pranks, playing poker, and taking care of those around him. He had a love for the eyes, as an optometrist, up until his untimely death. In recent years while Jeff was partially retired, he found himself on the ski slopes as a member of the safety patrol for 9 seasons at his favorite ski resort, Copper Mountain. He was an active member of the St. Gabriel Knight’s of Columbus in Colorado Springs, previously serving as Grand Knight and Faithful Navigator. 

Dr. Sikorski served in the Army, Air Force and Air National Guard retiring in 2002 as a Lieutenant Colonel with over 26 years of service. He served all over the world and all over the US including Germany, Korea, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Louisiana, California, and Colorado. He also served with the 1st Cavalry Division during Operation Desert Storm in 1991. He received numerous awards including the Meritorious Service Medal, the Army and Air Force Commendation Medals, Kuwait Liberation Medal, and the Expert Field Medical Badge.

Jeff is survived by his three children Joseph Sikorski, Adam Sikorski, and Jeribeth (Ian) Rochstein; soon-to-be granddaughter; mother-of-his-children and friend, Sue Sikorski; longtime partner Bonnie Wendelburg; mother, Marlys Sikorski; his siblings Bev (Kirby) Steffens, Brenda (Rich) Adolf, Vickie (John) Schuster, and Wayne (Rachelle) Sikorski; and many loved nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father, Vic Sikorski and his brother, Jerry Sikorski.

Jeff’s kindness, humor, and dedication to his family and community will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
