September 2, 1985 – January 29, 2012

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the untimely passing of Lance Brian Dodginghorse, who passed away suddenly on Sunday, January 29, 2012 at the age of 26.

Lance was born on September 2nd, 1985. He was an amazing and talented young man who had an infectious laugh and a gorgeous smile. Lance had a way to bring happiness and laughter to all those he loved and who love him. His passions were hockey, art, skateboarding, golf, hunting, mixing music, working with horses, and of course his daughter Catori – his greatest achievement. Lance played hockey for 22 years from the age of 4 and in 2011, Lance proudly represented Tsuu T’ina Nation at the World Police and Fire Games in New York City. He acted in the movie Dream Keepers. He also was certified oilfield drilling technician. Lance had a love of life that will be dearly missed by all of us who were blessed to have had him in our lives. Lance had a very special relationship with all his younger friends. They all looked up to him for his kindness and his mentoring ability. He leaves behind a career as a firefighter with the Tsuu T’ina Nation.
