Kevin Gordon Elander May 27, 1986-August 19, 2015

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Kevin on Wednesday, August 19th, 2015, at the age of 29 years. Born in Vancouver B.C to Elaine Evans and Allan Elander, Kevin was a ray of sunshine to everyone who was lucky enough to know him. He is predeceased by grandparents Grace (2001) and Donald Evans (2006) and Bestafa Peter Elander (2009). He is survived by his parents and his Bestama Lily Elander, Uncle Garth Evans, cousins Angus (Maxine, Hunter, Wyatt), Keith(Kathryn) Charlotte Evans,Evan Howatson (Christie,Reid, Ellie) Uncle John Elander, and cousins Jorn and Peer, stepmother Theresa and stepsister Nikki and stepbrother Jonathan. Kevin will be fondly remembered by his good buddy and dedicated friend, Antonio Pasacreta, and Kevin's family at False Creek Residence. Kevin showed up a month early at a whopping 7 Lb 15 oz. Born with Spina Bifida, his infectious smile and zest for life was an inspiration to everyone who came in contact with him. Kevin loved music and had a wonderful singing voice.A thrill seeker from day one, Kevin was an avid skier, played floor and sledge hockey and loved sailing and paddle boarding. His love for hockey was unparalleled. Kevin always looked forward to participating in the Vancouver Sun Run, usually finishing in about 1hr and 13 minutes. A true gamer in every sense of the word, Kevin will be remembered for the joy he brought to all our hearts. A Celebration of Kevin's Life will be held at Creekside Community Centre at 1 Athletes Way, Vancouver, B.C. on September 6th at 1:00 p.m., followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Kevin's name to the club or a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
