March 30, 1999 – June 18, 2013
Jaden was born March 30, 1999 in Augusta, Georgia to a beautiful woman who blessed us all when she chose us to be his family. He really was the most wanted child ever. Home for Jaden was Stettler, Alberta and because of his quirky sense of humor and selfless nature he changed our corner of the world forever.
With his first big catch fishing he found a way to get peace and time for himself, but his spotlight was on the ice. With pride he wore #8. Jaden’s passion for hockey could be seen in the way he played and the amount of time he spent in the penalty box. Both a growing boy and a young man, Jaden enjoyed playing games with other kids just as much as he enjoyed knowing he was accepted as an older kid. He touched the lives of so many people in so many ways. The time we had to spend with Jaden was shorter than we wanted, but we are forever thankful for every minute of our 14 years we had with him.
Miss you buddy!
Jaden is survived by his mother Dianna Richards, his father Dick Richards; brothers and sisters: Nova (Ryan), Devon (Zazie), Lyndon (Barrett), Luke, Tyson and Kenya; grandfather Ron Richards and grandmother Marilyn Fulton; numerous other relatives and many friends. Reunited with his grandmother Carol Richards and grandfather Ernie Fulton.
Funeral service was held at Lake View Cemetery on June 25, 2013 with Rev. Karl Faltin officiating. A time of fellowship and a luncheon was held at the Multi Purpose Room at the Stettler Recreation Centre following the graveside service. Memorial donations may be made in Jayden’s name to STARS or to the Epilepsy Association of Alberta.
