Aaron Matthew Rushant

October 29, 1986 - June 15, 2017


It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to our son, brother and friend. After a year-long battle with cancer, Aaron slipped away the morning of June 15 with family by his side. Aaron was born and raised in Powell River, BC. When he was 17, he moved to Pemberton, BC, and spent the last 13 years living up and down the Sea-to-Sky Corridor. Both locations allowed him to indulge his love of sports and outdoor recreation. From snowboarding, climbing, hiking with his dogs to playing soccer, basketball and softball, Aaron was always active and out in the community. His big smile and generous heart will be sorely missed by all his family and friends. Aaron was predeceased by his father, Don Rushant. He will be missed by his partner Louise Jeanneau, his mom and stepdad, Peggy (née Egberts) and Al Lacourciere, sister Joslyn (Steve) McDonald, nephews Archer and Declan, brothers Darcy Rushant and Joel Tait, his housemates Jethro, Angela and Thea and his beloved dogs Dosia and Monkey. He also leaves behind a large extended family of aunts, uncles, and cousins, as well as many friends. Funeral Mass will be at 10 am, Saturday, June 24, at Church of the Assumption in Powell River, BC. Prayers will be held Friday evening at 5 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to Save Your Skin or BC Cancer Agency would be appreciated. The heart remembers, one who is loved never dies.
