Jerome Eric Baptiste

It is with great sadness that we, the families of Jerome Eric Baptiste, announce the loss of our beloved father, grandfather, son, brother, brother-in-law, son-in-law, nephew, grandson, uncle, relative and friend after a brief and courageous battle of an illness at the Foothills Medical Centre (special services).

Jerome was born in Calgary, Alberta. He was humble and unique in his own special way. He attended Exshaw School, Springbank and SAIT, where he received his certification for carpentry in 1999. His passion was to excel at hockey, participated in numerous rodeos in saddlebronc events, and played many sports. Men’s Jr. Fancy Dance led him to travel throughout Alberta, British Columbia and the United States. He actively participated in many cultural events such as horseback riding, pack trip, and camping. He will be remembered for his great sense of humour.
