UPDATE: Funeral/Celebration of Life for Chris Bonneau July 29th 11:00AM Wild Rose Motopark

Chris Bonneau, passed away July 20th.  The family has made arrangements for a Celebration of Chris' life at the Wildrose Motocross Association (Blackfoot) park at 11:00AM on Friday, July 29th, 2011.

If you have something yellow to wear, do so, would be a nice touch at the funeral.  It will be informal, so a yellow jersey works too.  There will be a luncheon after the service, if you are able to bring some squares or cookies...that would be wonderful.

In lieu of flowers, Anne Bonneau has set up a trust for their two children CJ and Brooklyn.

May 13, 1966 - July 20, 2011
It is with great sadness that we announce
the passing of Christopher (Chris) Charles
Bonneau on Wednesday, July 20, 2011 at the
young age of 45 years. Chris was born in
Calgary on May 13, 1966. He will be dearly
missed by his loving and devoted wife Anne,
and their amazing children CJ (Christopher
Junior) age eight, Brooklyn (Anne) age
seven and his faithful companion Flic (his
beloved Jack Russell Terrier). He is survived
by his mother Donna and father Merv and
predeceased by his brother Shawn (Rob).
From an early age, Chris developed a passion
for motocross and raced professionally for
many years. This passion developed into a
career when in 2001 Chris purchased Pro-
Action Suspension and actually started
getting paid for helping people out. He made
sure to find a girl who liked bikes and
married Anne November 15, 2001; this year
would have been their ten year anniversary.
They then had two kids who both raced as
well. Chris built a wonderful life for his
family, camping and biking meanwhile
always lending a helping hand to anyone
and everyone. The biking community will
never be the same without him. Chris fought
a heroic battle against cancer for the last
seven years and never entertained the
thought of losing. He is admired and
respected by all that knew him. A Memorial
Service will be held for Chris at the Wildrose
Motocross Park (58 Avenue and Burbank
Road S.E.) (please wear yellow) on Friday,
July 29, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers,
donations may be made to his children's
future; Anne Bonneau, in trust for CJ and
Brooklyn Bonneau. Forward condolences
through . In
living memory of Chris Bonneau, a tree will be
planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park.
