Sasha spent his first years in Beaumont and Edmonton. At the age of twelve he came to live with his aunt and uncle Joyce and Brian Johnson in Beaumont. He spent his teen years there and was known for being a friend to everyone. He was a good Samaritan always happy to lend a hand, especially to those experiencing hardship or distress.
Sasha was a compassionate, funny, outgoing, and creative man. He was a Red Seal Cabinet Maker and many establishments around Edmonton have benefitted from his work. Although he loved the creative part of his profession, his passion was firefighting. As he said in a media interview: “I’ve wanted to get into fire fighting for close to 10 years now,” says cabinet maker Sasha Serre, 34. “Every year I see the fires happening in Alberta and it just eats away at me, you know. You just want to be out there and you just want to be helping out with the guys.”
An indigenous Celebration of Life will be held on May 14 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Our Lady of Mercy Church at 7344 239 Street NW, Enoch, AB.
Sasha will be interred in Clearwater Cemetery, Beaumont with his beloved grandmother, Marie Carlson.
