It is with profound sadness that Rudy Jonas Baptiste  was called home by our Creator on Monday, May 22, 2023 at the age of 37 years.



Rudy was an avid athlete in which hockey was his passion. He continued to excel playing left wing position up to the time of his passing. He enjoyed listening to all kinds of music, as well as being outdoors actively participating in all sorts of other activities.

Rudy is survived by his two children Rudy Jr and Joel; his siblings, Bonnie, Sam, Blaine, Hannah (Oliver), Joni, Holly (Brandon), Rene (Dieter), Brittany, Arcilla(Ollin), Jayda(Shelton) and Candace(Dillon); his numerous nieces and nephews; his numerous aunties and uncles, cousins, extended relatives from the Baptiste, Crawler, Benjamin, Dixon, Kootenay, House, Mark and Simeon families; as well as numerous extended cousins, relatives, and friends. We would like to apologize if we missed anyone.
