BOUCHARD Will Armand

October 14, 1998 – May 22, 2011

 

It is with broken hearts that we mourn the sudden and tragic passing of our beloved son and brother Will.

Will was an incredible young boy with a zest for life and a passion for sports.  He loved winters; training and competing with the Fernie Freestyle ski team and could be found testing new tricks, exploring new terrain, and enjoying the companionship of his team mates, coaches, friends, and family.   Will also spent countless hours on his trampoline with his friends and brothers, and enjoyed all of the many outdoor activities and sports that come with living in the wonderful community of Redwood Meadows and Bragg Creek.  Will was a grade 7 student at Banded Peak School where his social and leadership qualities and unending laughter endeared him to everyone who knew him.

Will leaves behind his mother Joni, father Murray, and big brothers Justin and Ben, grandparents Vern and Marlene Ruff and Elsie Bouchard along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends. Will was an incredibly affectionate child who filled our lives and our home with so many wonderful moments and memories.  There is a void in our hearts and in our lives beyond words.  We will miss him and are grateful for the time, though much too short, that we shared with him. 

A celebration of Will’s life will be held at the Bragg Creek Community Center on Saturday May 28, 2011 at   11:00 a.m.  23 White Ave. Bragg Creek Alberta 403-949-4277.    If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made in Will’s name directly to The KidSport Society of Alberta, Box 36107, Lakeview RPO, Calgary, AB T3E 7C6 Telephone: 1-(888) 91-4kids or (403) 217-3761. www.kidsport.ab.ca

The family wishes to thank all those near and far who have shared their love and support through this incredibly difficult time.
