In Loving Memory of
Erwin Dale Debassige
June 15, 1975 – April 16, 2020

After a battle with cancer, Erwin began his journey to the Spirit World at the age of 44, surrounded by family in the comfort of his loving home.

Erwin was a caring and kind man with a great sense of humour, which he shared right up until his final day.  

Erwin’s love was his wife, Sonya, and their three children Ruben, Ethan and Tyran who will all sadly miss him.
He treasured his family as they created many memories together. Erwin loved the outdoors (fishing, hunting
and camping), watching wrestling (where a lot of laughs were shared with his boys) and he loved to play hockey and he proudly watched his two sons Tyran and Ethan enjoy this game.    

Erwin’s most recent work was at M’Chigeeng Freshmart where he was proud to be serving his community and Freshmart customers.  He will be fondly remembered by his co-workers and valued customers.

Dearly loved son of Earl Debassige (wife Debbie) and Pearl Debassige.  Beloved brother of Marcella Debassige, Deana Debassige-Wood, and Deidre Debassige.  Dearly loved son-in-law of Richard and Nancy Armstrong.  Special brother-in-law to Tonya and Amber Amstrong.

Erwin will be sadly missed by his nephews, nieces, friends, and co-workers.

The Immediate Family will be having a
Private Gathering
at Erwin’s home
with a Private Burial on
Monday, April 20, 2020
at 11:00 a.m.
Celebration of Life
will be held on April 20, 2021.

A Sacred Fire has been burning in his yard
(39 Spring Bay Road) where extended family and friends can go to offer their prayers and farewell messages.

A Trust Fund will be created for Erwin’s three sons
and his wife, Sonya.  Any donations can be directed
‘In Trust to Debbie Debassige’ through online banking

Miigwech to M’Chigeeng Health Centre Nursing Staff
and M’Chigeeng First Nation for their support
during this difficult time.

Remember me for my laughter
and my love for my family.
