Obituary of Tristan Jay Melvin Junior Saddleback
(September 3, 2008 - November 2, 2022)
Our precious boy Tristan Jay Melvin Junior Saddleback was taken home suddenly on November 2nd, 2022 at the PICU Stollery Childrens Hospital at the age of 14 years.
Tristan was born on September 3, 2008 to Joanna and Jerrold at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton Alberta. Joanna and Jerrold entrusted their precious gift to Randy and Donna Hendrickson of Camrose, AB to love and raise at this time.
Tristan was a beautiful boy with a loving heart whose smile could light up a room. Tristan loved a variety of things and everything and everyone. He loved fireplaces and fire pits and any kinds of food (emphasis on anything made with sour cream). Tristan loved watching videos on his ipad and loved hearing books. He also had a fondness for his mothers Tim Hortons coffee despite the irritation of his Mom.
Although Tristan had a life that was filled with many challenges such as dealing with his Cerebral Palsy and many many seizures he found a way to bring joy to life to all those around him at all times. It was very seldom that you ever saw a frown on his beautiful face.
Tristan was predeceased by his grandmother Diana Artman and bio siblings Jeralainah, and Kendall Saddleback.
He leaves heartbroken in his absence: Bio Father Jerrold, Mom and Dad, Randy and Donna Hendrickson, Siblings both bio and foster – Kristopher (Raila) Parenteau, Rick Parenteau (Joanna Fennell), Eric Roasting, Jayde Saddleback, Ben Kehijekonaham, Carlyle Ryane, Carter Ross-Teeter, Andrew Baker, Preston Saddleback, Donalda Saddleback, Lindsey Bruno, Jeannia Bruno, Hunter Saddleback, Channce Saddleback and Jerrislie Saddleback.
He also leaves a hole in the hearts of many other family and friends that mourn his passing.
