PARADIS, Dylan

November 1, 1985 –February 4, 2019

Dylan Paradis, beloved husband of Jennifer Paradis and father to Meadow and Molly, passed away on Monday, February 4th at the age of 33.

Dylan was born and raised in Schreiber, Ontario, attending Holy Angels School until age ten. He moved to Atikokan with his mom, brother, sister and stepdad until age seventeen and would spend summers with his family in Schreiber. During the summers Dylan enjoyed spending time at the camps at Ross Lake, Sand Lake and when older, his Crystal Lake. In 2002 he moved to Crowsnest Pass with his mother and stepfather. He then returned to Schreiber for his Grade twelve year, graduating from Lake Superior High School. After high school, Dylan returned to Alberta living in Fort McMurray, then onto Calgary where he attended the Railway Conductors Course at SAIT. Growing up, Dylan had always wanted to work for the railway, like his father and began working for the CPR in 2007.

Dylan was an incredible father and his love for his girls was unmatched. They spent their time playing, laughing, cuddling and exploring. He had an incredible work ethic and was dedicated to providing a beautiful life for Jen and his girls. Dylan knew what he wanted for his life, the kind of home he wanted for his family and he made every decision in honor of that. He was a family man first, an amazing son, brother, uncle, friend, cousin and colleague. When Dylan was not working he enjoyed watching movies and playing cranium with his beloved mother Pam, swimming, sledding, dancing, and reading with his girls, poker with his friends, and loving Jen.

Besides his loving wife and children, Dylan is survived by his mother Pam, his father Les (Carol), his sister Jasmine, his brother Tanner, his niece Sierra, his grandmother Ethel, his grandfather Neil and his many extended family and friends. He was predeceased by his stepfather Gregory Fraser.

A Celebration of Dylan’s Life was  held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB) on Monday, February 11, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    I worked with Dylan four times this past month. I joked with him that we should get married as we saw each other more than our wives. He shared stories with me about his beautiful family which I found heartwarming and hilarious. Now, my heart is broken for this unspeakable tragedy, further broken by the loss of our other friends and colleagues. As I write, I am currently in Field awaiting a train home. This beautiful, majestic, unrelenting, corner of the world will always belong to Dylan and his crew. Rest well, my brother.

    Dylan was completely and wholly committed to his family whom he talked about constantly and lovingly since the day I met him. His infectious smile and wonderful personality will never be forgotten. Never a bad word said about anyone, never before have I met a more genuine person then Dylan. Dylan and his brave crew on February 4th 2019 will never be forgotten…..ever . God Bless You

  6. I crossed paths with Dylan at the Field bunkhouse. I didn’t know him, but we did the same job. When I saw his photo in the news, I recalled him standing at the computer in the booking in/off room in Field. I didn’t have to know him to know that he was BRAVE.
    I send your family my deepest heartfelt condolences.
