August 10, 1945 – December 23, 2020
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Julien Carriere on December 23, 2020.
He leaves behind his beloved wife Allison; children Jason (Cristina), Brad (Toby), Laury (Michael), Brady (Joleen), and Cortney, as well as his grandchildren Jessica, Oliver, Anabelle, Samantha, Brooklyn, Carson, Edward, Sam, and Emma.
He was predeceased by his first wife, Irene Carriere. Julien also leaves behind countless friends, extended family, and colleagues.
In the days since his passing the most frequent memory shared with us about Julien has been in regards to his kindness, warm heart, and twinkle in his eye. There have been many comments about Julien being in that category of honourable and good men who have brought happiness to so many people over the span of his lifetime. Julien was beloved by all, especially children and animals, and was fortunate to have been surrounded by them wherever he went. His easy-going nature and light-hearted ways were a gift to all of us.
Julien was born in San Clara, Manitoba, and moved to Vancouver in the 1960’s. He moved to Williams Lake in 1979, where he remained until his passing. He was happiest in the mountains and did many horse trips into the South Chilcotin with his close friends.
In recent years he travelled extensively, and hiked through parts of South America, Antarctica, Africa, Canada/USA, and Europe. The last five years were spent to the fullest with new experiences, love, and exploration.
Julien believed in simplicity, kindness and acceptance. Being outdoors in nature, eating hot dogs cooked on the campfire, fishing on the lake, riding his horse into the mountains, hiking with Allison, growing tomatoes, and seeing his family brought him happiness. Julien will be missed by all of us, but we will honour his memory by going forward in kindness and with a twinkle in our eyes.
We hope that your next journey brings you adventure, and we will remember you always.
