It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden death of Christofer Blair Llewellyn, who passed away unexpectedly in Red Deer, Alberta, on Thursday, August 3rd, 2023.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in June of 1974, Chris (Lew) was the youngest of four kids. He was funny, kind, smart and athletic. As a child, he found a love for tennis and it was as if he was born to play the game, he was a natural. Whether he was playing at the tennis club with friends, watching it on tv, being a ball boy for Sabatini or travelling with dad to the US Open, his love for the game endured.
Chris attended Acadia University after graduating high school, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree. Following University, Chris headed to Banff with friends to work for a year and experience life in the mountains and then headed to Toronto where he worked in finance for over 10 years. In 2016, Chris moved to Red Deer where he established a successful landscaping business. He was very personable and easy to talk to and developed wonderful relationships with his clients. Chris will be dearly missed by all who loved him.
Chris will be lovingly remembered by his three siblings, Sean, Greg and Steph; his nieces, Abby (Steph), Ali (Steph), Emily (Greg) and Sofia (Sean/Rania), and his nephews Lucas (Steph) and Zach (Sean/Rania); plus many other relatives and friends, including one of his closest friends Kerry Lynch (Halifax), plus James Sullivan, Dave Anderson, Rasmus Norve and many other friends from QEH and Acadia University. And we can’t forget his furry companion Herc, whom Chris cared for and loved deeply. Chris was predeceased by his parents Donna and Grant Llewellyn and his grandparents, Wanda and Charlie Llewellyn and Kay and George Swan.
A service will be held September 9th at 11:00 am at the Sunnybrook United Church in Red Deer, AB. Memorial donations may be made to the SPCA or an animal rescue organization of your choice.
