Celebration of Life for Matt Beaudet slated for Aug. 20

On Saturday June 3rd 2017, 33 year old Mathieu Paul Beaudet, formerly from Castlegar, BC, passed away peacefully with his family by his side. He fought a long and hard battle with a rare form of cancer (synovial sarcoma) to be present as long as he could be, for his family and his children.
He is survived by his wife Jacquelyn, daughters Keeley and Avorie, son Rhys, sister Ellen and her partner Arthur, nephew Thorben, parents Evelyn and Trevor Etty, extended family, as well as numerous friends.
Matt will always be remembered for his beautiful spirit, his love for the outdoors, his trademark laughter, and his positive attitude towards life and everyone he ever met. He was an inspiration, a bright light and will continue to shine above forever. He will be greatly missed by everyone he touched.
Matt's courage throughout his journey reminded us all of the preciousness of life and how important it is to live and love in the moment. His family and friends know Matt would send a huge thank you to all who supported him and his family on this difficult journey.
A Celebration of Life for Matt will be held on Sunday, August 20, 2017 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Castlegar Community Recreation Complex, 2101 6th Avenue, Castlegar, BC. This event is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend.
In lieu of flowers, we would ask that you consider donations of school supplies or non-perishable food items to the Castlegar Community Harvest Foodbank or cash donations to the Kootenay Animal Assistance Program (
Matt was quite specific as to what he wanted and therefore we ask that people come prepared to laugh and share stories and dress comfortably in non-somber colors. Please come Celebrate and Remember Mathieu with us! ❤
