He also graduated from Jack James High School in June 2013, where his interest in welding and auto body was ignited. His post-secondary plans were to attend SAIT and become a Welding Technician. Colton had his own way of bonding with his father and siblings whether it was baking cakes with Jasmine, playing Xbox with Wyatt or watching movies with his dad. He always carried his Xbox around with him wherever he went, and was an expert gamer. ColtonÂ¹s favourite colour was green and his favourite music group was Wu- Tang Clan. He loved being in the outdoors skateboarding or just hanging out with friends. Whether it was time spent visiting best friend, Dray Cardinal, or to Siksika; his second home.

We gather to celebrate the life of our son, grandson, brother, nephew, cousin and friend to remember his easy-going, humble, kind, generous, and comical persona, as well as his respectful and considerate demeanour toward all those he loved so dearly.
