VERHAEGHE, Christopher Ryan Jerome
April 5, 1985 – April 30, 2012
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin, Ryan Verhaeghe on April 30, 2012.
Ryan is survived by his mother Melody Verhaeghe (Terrell Stanely), his father Terry Douville, his sister Amanda Shaw (Patrick Friesen) and nephew Zedekiah, grandparents Cathy (Frank) Gentile, Russell Verhaeghe (Revi) and great grandmother Elenor Verhaeghe. He also leaves to mourn his passing his aunt Merrilee Verhaeghe (Jim Lozza) and cousin Joey Verhaeghe and 2nd cousins J.J. and Justice, and his aunty Candace Verhaeghe (Chris Doering) and cousins Megan and Ashley. Ryan was preceded in death by his great grandfather Maurice Verhaeghe, his uncle Michael Verhaeghe and his great grandmother Ellen Smith (Dean Smith).
Ryan loved his family tremendously and had a heart as big as all outdoors. He’d help those he could when called upon; shoveled snow, mowed lawns, chopped wood and did whatever was needed without hesitation. His engaging smile and laughter could warm up any room. He was a caring and loyal friend to all who knew him and defended those who were unable. Ryan enjoyed working on and creating original and unique artwork which he enjoyed sharing with family and friends.
He will be deeply missed and forever remembered.
