It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Devon Newson of Calgary on Sunday, July 23, 2006 at the age of 18 years.
Devon was born on October 20, 1987 in Calgary. He was an energetic little boy from the start with a huge heart and a great personality. Very active, he loved doing anything outdoors, including achieving the position as a “running back” on a Calgary football team. Devon’s favourite vacations were those summer camping trips spent with his family, participating in activities like quading and fishing with his Dad. Despite this all he faced many challenges in his short life.
Beloved son of Trevor and Christine Newson of Calgary; brother to Danielle Newson of Calgary; and grandson of Enid Ford of Calgary, and Julie and Tim Bolen of Ponoka, AB and Barbara Sims of Sicamous, BC. Devon was predeceased by his grandfathers, Elmer George Sims of Sicamous, BC; and Bruce Newson of Stony Plain, AB. He will be forever loved and remembered by his many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Devon will forever be in our hearts.
