He fought like a true champion, working so hard to live after surviving leukemia but dealing with a weakened body and many complications. He stayed strong looking at the bright side of life with humour and acceptance. It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Cale Leonard Therrien on January 18, 2017 in Edmonton, AB at the age of 35 years.
Cale is survived by his sister Robin (Darin) Onyskevitch; his niece and nephew Makenna and Nathan; his grandmother Beverly Therrien; his aunt Lorraine Skaley, aunt Carolynne Bouey Shank, uncle Ken (Karla) Bouey and aunt Jane Bouey (Kimball Cariou); his cousins Deanne (Dave) Menks, Kevin (Eva) Skaley, Garry Shank, Chris (Catherine) Bouey, Shaun (Elyse) Bouey, Cameron (Jessilyn) Shank and James Cariou; great-cousins Skylar, Alexa, Addilyn, Sebastian, Edith; extended family the Fiddlers, and by numerous relatives and friends.
He was preceded by his mother Eileen and father Jerry; grandparents Lloyd and Anne Bouey, Hector Therrien, Joe and Irene Lycka, and uncle Don Shank.
