Arvay, Christian

Christian Arvay of the Saltcoats district passed away unexpectedly on December 3, 2017 at the age of 17 years. Christian was born on November 1, 2000 in Yorkton Union Hospital at 10:37 am. Christian was in a hurry to arrive and then decided he was going to come on his own time and was born a month overdue. From the moment he came into the world, he was loved by so many. Christian was blessed to have two families love him dearly and eventually many siblings. His eyes showed so much passion and could light up any room. He always made everyone laugh and smile - his amazing personality was contagious. Christian was full of love and compassion for everyone. He played soccer and baseball but found his true passion with hockey at a young age. In hockey he made lifelong friends that stood behind him. He always had so many fans for everything he did and always made sure to make everyone proud. He was nicknamed "Arvinator" in hockey and was given recognition for taking the longest route to the net. Christian spent a lot of time gaming with friends. Spending time with family and friends was a priority for him and he always looked forward to special occasions with his large extended families. Christian loved spending time with his grandparents and had a special bond with his Grandpa Wayne. Christian had a talent for building with wood and loved working on different projects for others. He even turned the mundane job of helping cut firewood into a fun activity by carving various designs into each and every log. In his teenage years he found a passion for reading, water skiing, tubing, fishing, camping and teaching his siblings many new things. Christian covered miles of back roads on quad rides with family. On summer days he was often found in the backyard in the hammock enjoying a good book. Recently Christian had become interested in fitness and was excited about weight lifting. Christian had a soft spot for animals and babies. He adored his many pets. He could often be found snuggled right up to the dogs or smuggling a kitten into the shop when working on a project. On his last day on earth, he spent most of his day playing with his baby cousin in the most loving and kind way. His gentle spirit was clear to all. He created so many amazing memories to hold onto in the short time he was with us. Why he had to leave us we will never know, but he will never be forgotten. Christian is predeceased by his Grandma Lyn Becquet and his Grandpa Merle Gorski. He leaves to mourn his passing, his parents, Christine and Kirk Gorski and Bryan and Sarah Becquet, his siblings: Kale, Kaden and Kenzie Gorski and Jacob, Elijah, Gwendolyn and David Becquet, his grandparents Geri and Wayne Arvay, Jolene Gorski, Rick Becquet and Charles and Donna Dyck, as well as great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and many other extended family members. The Funeral Service was held on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at Heritage Baptist Church in Yorkton with Pastor Brian Kirsch officiating. The hymns, "It is Well With My Soul" and "Amazing Grace" were sung by the congregation. Special music, 'Why' and 'Jealous of Angels' was shared by Jackie Guy. The Gorski and Becquet family's would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support and generosity. We truly could not have managed without the love and support of all the attendees and volunteers. Condolences can be sent to the family at
