Clay Everett Ladouceur

April 28, 1997 - March 25, 2021

Tribute

Clay Everett Ladouceur of Nelson BC formerly of the Buffalo Lake Metis Settlement, Alberta passed away suddenly on March 25, 2021 at the age of 23.

 

He is survived by his son Daeton, his mother Candice and Rodney, his brothers Tyler and Cache.  His nieces Lena and Dalice.  His uncles Terry, Frankie and Curtis and aunts Cora and Amanda.  His biological father Luke and his siblings Raylene, Ray Jay, Ricky, Ray Lynn and Ravynn and paternal grandmother Doreen and many special cousins, extended family and friends in Alberta and British Columbia.

 

Clay was predeceased by his maternal grandfather Francis in 2018 and maternal grandmother Clara shortly after his birth in 1997.

 

Clay was born on April 28, 1997 in Boyle Alberta.  His grandmother Clara gifted him with his name on the day he was born.   He went to school in Caslan, Boyle, Kitscoty, Lac La Biche and graduated high school in 2015 in Kinuso Alberta.  He worked in many different jobs in Edmonton, High Level, Boyle, Slave Lake, Vancouver and Nelson.  His true love of his life was creating music, songwriting and playing guitar.  Clay was especially close with his Papa Francis Desjarlais.   Clay was a free spirit who was loved by so many people he touched through his short life and his smile and laugh would light up any room he entered and brought joy to many who came to know him.

 

Clay will be interred at the Buffalo Lake Cemetery.  Due to COVID 19 restrictions he will be transferred to Alberta for a private viewing followed by cremation and a memorial gathering will be taking place at a later date.

 

In lieu of gifts or flowers the family asks that any donations be made to a trust fund being established for his son Daeton.  Further information will be provided at a later date on trust information by contacting Clay’s mother Candice or the Thompson Funeral Service at 250-352-3613.  The family would like to thank their many special family and friends who provided supports and prayers to Clay’s family and for support from the Buffalo Lake Metis Settlement Chair and Council and staff.
