With tremendous heartache we announce the death of 38 year old Grant Edward Caldwell who died suddenly on Monday, February 18, 2013. He was born in Fernie on February 5, 1975.
Like many kids born and raised with the mountains as their playground, Grant developed a passion for anything that involved spending time outside. Given the opportunity, Grant could be found with either a gun or fishing pole in hand. Summer months provided many fun times around the campfire, cold beer on ice and great conversation carrying on into the evening. From bush cruising to sledding, Grant was always ready for the next adventure! Grant will be remembered for his zest for life, his friendly smile and his terrific sense of humor. He will be dearly missed.
Grant is survived by his son Mike Caldwell, his parents Don and Colleen (nee Pachara) Caldwell, his sister and brother-in-law, Brenda and Calvin Hesketh with their son William, and his girlfriend Jess Holland with sons Shaymus and Tyson as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and good friends. He was preceded in death by uncles Ted Pachara and Victor Caldwell.
The Funeral Service was held at the Mountainside Community Church on Thursday, February 28th with Pastor Trevor Freeman of the Christ Church Anglican officiating. Following the service Grant was laid to rest at St. Margaret’s Cemetery.
Memorial tributes may be made in Grant’s memory to the Cranbrook SPCA, PO Box 2 Cranbrook, BC V1C 4H6. Messages of condolence may be sent to www.cherishedmemoriesfs.com Arrangements entrusted to Cherished Memories Funeral Services Ltd.
