November 5, 1990 – July 4, 2019
It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of our beloved Julian.
He will be forever missed by his mother Roxanne, father Michael, step father Jeff Laine, brother Luis, sister Reina, Oma Ina Loeschnik, grandmother Dawn Heiden, grandfather Jamie McColl, great grand mother Shirly Ross, great grand parents Dale & Jeanette Heiden.
Julian is also fondly remembered by his aunty Inger and cousin Ella.
He will also be missed by many family and friends.
Julian was a passionate person and enjoyed life to it’s fullest. Born and raised in Nelson he enjoyed snowboarding down mountain slopes, diving and swimming in crisp lakes (and staying in for an extraordinary long time) he also enjoyed golf and was a fantastic cook. He cooked professionally but mostly enjoying cooking delicious meals for family and friends.
Julian had a big heart and his family meant everything to him. Julian named his nephew Spruce Lee and was one of his main caregivers while his mother worked.
Julian struggled with substance abuse but wanted to improve his life especially because he was an uncle and role model for his nephew Spruce. Julian went to go to the Maple Ridge Treatment Centre and learned many things about himself and the struggles of others. He made a point to speak at the graduation ceremonies at MRTC and said specific things to each person that often-brought laughter and tears. Julian had a compassionate and understanding heart and saw the good in everyone.
Viewing will be available to anyone who would like to see him on Thursday July 18th at 3pm at Thompson Funeral Home at 613 Ward Street in Nelson.
A service for Julian will be held on Friday July 19th at 1 pm at Thompson Funeral Home.
Julian will be laid to rest at the Gray Creek cemetery.
