Curtis Shawn Granbois
August 29, 1961-March 1, 2012
Curt passed away peacefully at home in Campbell River on
March 1st, surrounded by his family. Born on August 29, 1961 he grew up in Lake Cowichan, then spent his working life in the mills of Tahsis, Gold River, and Campbell River before joining his wife in operating their care home Sunshine Manor, in Campbell River.
For Curt hockey was a passion, both playing and coaching, and he shared this love of the game with his family and friends. This grit and determination and pushing to the max in all areas of his life drew the admiration of those who knew him. He truly knew a day well lived today made a good memory for tomorrow.
Curtis is survived by his wife Lee, his children Danielle Granbois (David Dwinnell), Travis (Maddy), Angela Smith (Peter Frankham), Tiffany Bellrose (Edward), and Chase Smith (Danielle) and his 8 grandchildren Chevelle, Trenton, Gavin, Kaiden, Daniel, Jordan Lee, McKenzie, and Makayla.
Curt was predeceased by his father Armand in 2011, but survived by his mother Daphne, and his brothers Daryl (Diane), Randy (LaVerne), and Barry (Sabine) and their families.

Daryl and Carrie Jeune and Wes Roed for being there when needed, and the support of the Campbell River Men’s and Women’s Hockey Associations, and many friends whose help has been endless.
