ADAM CARDINAL

ADAM ELLIOT CANNON CARDINAL It is with shattered hearts that the family announces the passing of its beloved son, Adam Elliot Cannon Cardinal in the presence of his loving family, at home on February 24, 2012 after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Winnipeg on September 25, 1981, this wonderful young man leaves behind his mother Brenda Cannon (Martin), his father Brian Cardinal (Brenda), his adoring sister Vanessa (Marvin), his brothers, Sean (Kim), Chris and Clayton (Pam), along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. A life long athlete, hockey was Adam's true passion participating and as a spectator. In recent weeks, a documentary film examining Winnipeg's first Stanley Cup triumph - Champion City, the 1896 Winnipeg Victorias - was premiered, starring none other than Adam Cardinal. Though his time with us was short, he brought joy and love to our hearts. Adam had a determined heart and a soul which encompassed everyone he met. A high school teacher and coach, Adam gave of himself every day. Adam was born to teach, coach and mentor. His insight, tenacity, strength and wisdom endeared him to all those privileged enough to have known him. His courage was never more evident than after he began his fight against cancer. Despite the challenges this presented, he focused the considerable power of his personality on forging a battle for a healthy body, spirit and mind. In July of 2011, despite six months of chemotherapy, Adam ran and cycled an 850 km journey with Tori's Run from Nelson House to Winnipeg to raise awareness and research money for cancer. He continued to lead others, encouraging them by teaching meditation techniques. He faced adversity and, as a result, made a difference in his own life and the lives of those around him. The family expresses its deep gratitude to Dr. Daeninck, Tracey, Dr. Gary Harding, Deb, and all those associated with CancerCare Manitoba for their dedication to Adam. Adam's life will be celebrated at a memorial service Saturday, March 3, 2012, at 1:00 p.m. at Covenant Christian Reformed Church, 653 Knowles, Winnipeg. In lieu of flowers, and at Adam's request, donations in Adam's memory are to Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC) 18 Argyle St, suite 201 St. John's, NL A1A 1V3 or on-line @ www.youngadultcancer.ca White Spotted Eagle fly with the spirits - soar home!
