DeBUSSCHERE – Adam Christopher

August 13, 1995 – November 14, 2010

Tragically, on Sunday, November 14, 2010, Adam Christopher DeBusschere, as a result of an asthma attack, left us.

Adam was born August 13, 1995 in Coquitlam, BC and the family moved back to Calgary in October that year. Adam started school at Mother Mary Green and went to Junior High at St. Jean Brebeuf and just started grade 10 at St. Francis High School. Adam enjoyed time at the lake in BC doing what he loved: fishing, wakeboarding, knee boarding and swimming. He loved the ocean and had the opportunity to go SNUBA diving and snorkelling in the Caribbean. He was very family oriented and loved spending time with his cousins. He had an excellent sense of humour and was always good for a laugh or a joke. He will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.

Adam leaves behind his parents, Scott and Michelle and his sister Alex. Also left behind are his paternal grandparents, Ken and Eleanor DeBusschere from Dodsland, SK, and maternal grandparents, Julian and Lillian Meush from Winnipeg, MB; seven aunts, six uncles, numerous great aunts and uncles, cousins, many dear friends, as well as his dogs Bella and Riley.

Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at St. Luke’s Catholic Church, 1566 Northmount Drive N.W., on Thursday, November 18, 2010 at 7:00 p.m.

Funeral Mass will be held at St. Luke’s Catholic Church, 1566 Northmount Drive N.W., on Friday, November 19, 2010 at 2:00 p.m.    You may forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

 If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, 2888 Shaganappi Trail N.W., Calgary, AB T3B 6A8, Telephone: (403) 955-8818 in Adam’s name.

The family would like to express their deepest thanks to Calgary EMS and the staff at the Alberta Children’s Hospital for their efforts and compassion.

In living memory of Adam, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park, by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot Chapel, 82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.  Telephone: (403) 241-0044.

    I lost my beautiful son Marc this past January and I simply wanted to express my sincerest condolences. You may not feel it right now but the sun will shine once again and your tears of despair that you feel right now will soon turn to tears of joy filled with much happier memories. Yes, his time on earth was far too short BUT you were blessed with having a SON.

  21. Michelle, Scott & Alex: My heart and prayers are with you at this terrible time as you bear the unbearable loss of Adam. I know words can’t do much but please know that Adam was loved by others too. He was a kind, smart, funny member of his Grade 6 class community and of Mother Mary Greene school. There is no understanding his loss when our world needed Adam here. May the angels be with him as he fully shares his love and beauty in the next life. With much caring, Marge Robinson

    Dear Mr.and Mrs.DeBUSSCHERE and Alex,

    I wish to extend my very deepest sympathy over Adam’s passing, which shocked and saddened me deeply.
    I remember Adem in Grade 3 as a capable student and a very fine boy. He was a student who was curious and enjoyed sharing his ideas with all of us. It was obvious even then how much his family meant to him.
    I know he will be greatly missed by so many. I am glad I had the opportunity to teach him.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Most Sincerely,
    Mary Lynn Henderson

  31. I’m so sorry for your loss, Adam was a great person, and one of the nicest guys I knew, had a great sense of humor and a kind heart. He will be missed immensely.
    You have probably never heard of me before, but I’d like you to know that, many people like myself were all influenced by your son, and he will never be forgotten, and I will never forget the conversations and time I spent talking to Adam.
    You’re all in my thoughts and I’ll be praying for you and your family.

    I can’t believe it. It just doesn’t seem real or make any sense. My heart goes out to you all. Your world has been turned upside down and there is nothing anyone can do to make it right side up again. Only God knows why and when we are each called back to his garden. I know Adam is still with you. He’s just walking on the other side of the line now. I pray you can find strength to heal together and find a way to keep on living life to the fullest the way you always did, knowing that Adam would want it that way. Maybe not right away but one day……. Sending you love and healing.

  37. The DeBusschere Family,

    My daughter was a Brebeuf & Francis classmate and friend of Adam’s. When she told me of his passing, I could not imagine the pain and heartbreak you are going through. I wasn’t fortunate enough to get to know Adam – hearing and reading about him, he was a remarkable young man. No words can appropriately express sympathy at a time like this – but we wanted you to know that Adam and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Wishing you peace and comfort,
