It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our our beloved “Toh Doe”.

Tranden received his education at Exshaw, Canmore Collegiate High School and Morley High School. He enjoyed ice skating, playing floor hockey and both working with and riding horses with his dad. He comes from a cowboy family and Indian World Rodeo Champions. He honored, respected and believed in traditional culture sundances, prayers and other cultural activities. He was always there for his mom and his “che” Ryan. He was a quiet man, respected everyone he met. He was always happy and enjoyed teasing his family and friends, always making them laugh. He enjoyed hanging out with his buddies and bros, Justin Hunter, Jonas Powderface, Shane Jimmy, Chad Wesley, and Brett Stephens.

He leaves to mourn his loving mother Sophia; brothers, “Che” Ryan, Ollin (Kelsey), Wacey, (Monica), Bailey (Kaila) and Garret (Glenna); father Ollie (Rae); maternal grandparents Sam and Annie Ear; special sisters, Vanessa (JR), Kelly (Shane), Tara, Chrissy (Nicki), Trichelle and Michelle; special nieces and nephews, Donovan, Shane Jr. Isiah, Metitia, Keisha and Lily Mae; uncles, Lawrence (Charlene) Elliott (Gwen), Darcy (Kathy), Tommy (Debbie) and Bruce (Shelly); Aunts, Janet, Natashia, Charlene, Melrose, Mina (Charles), Eva (Van) and Florence (Bruce). We apologize if we have missed anyone as he had many relatives and friends from the Ear, Stephens, Stevens, Twoyoungmen, Amos, Baptiste, Bearspaw, Benjamin, Crawler, Dixon and Powderface families. Tranden was predeceased by his paternal grandparents Paul Jr and Lily; maternal great-grandparents Moses and Christina; uncles and aunties, Sammy, Dion, Velma, Christine, Alice and many other family members.
