November 16, 1982 – November 16, 2018
Tragically, on November 16, 2018, Christian lost his life. He is survived by his son, Caden, parents, Ron and Mercedes Caron, sister Charlene, brother in-law Josh Cleary, niece and nephew, Olivia and Marcus, and his Memere, Valentine Bernardin. He will be dearly missed by countless aunts, uncles, cousins, close friends and Caden’s Mom, Sara. He is predeceased by uncle Grant (Butchy) Caron and his grandparents, Denis and Marcelle Caron, Raymond Bernardin and Charles Balmer.
Christian was a proud alumni of St. Paul’s High School, graduating in the year 2000. During his time at St. Paul’s he played on both the rugby and hockey team, forming meaningful friendships and most importantly, learned the importance of service to others. After attending University for a few years Christian joined the family business, Valmar Airflo Inc. in Elie where he was for many years. In 2016 he went to work in Fort Mac where he excelled and was voted union rep by fellow workers.
He loved the artistry of tattoos. He recently obtained his tattoo apprenticeship. He would often be found drawing and sketching. His passion for tattooing originated in his love for people and their stories. His family finds comfort in knowing his art and intentions touched so many people.
The love of Christian’s life was his son, Caden – he was so proud of the little man he is becoming.
After years of battling addiction, the brutal forces that stole his spirit finally took him away. That is not how he will be remembered.
Christian had an unmatched charm and a magnetic personality, always lighting up the room. He was quick-witted and excelled at new things with little effort. He connected easily with people from all walks of life, and cared deeply for his friends and family. He loved music, cooking (and eating), laughing and, most of all, spending time with his son.
His warm spirit and kind soul will live forever in our hearts.
“I am sorry this world could not keep you safe, may your journey home be a soft and peaceful one.”
All are welcome to attend a celebration of his life on Sunday, November 25 at 4:30 p.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, 4588 Roblin Blvd.
Pallbearers: Josh Cleary, Scott McNicol, Reagan Kruger, Michael Fanset, Blair Ritchot, and Kyle McPherson.
