It is with great sadness that the family announces the sudden passing of Chris Troche, age 38, on November 21, 2022 at his home in Victoria, BC.
Chris grew up in Winnipeg but spent his early years in the Chicago and Ottawa areas. After returning to Winnipeg, he attended Shamrock Middle School and JH Bruns High School where he played guitar and stand-up bass in the jazz band.
Chris loved fishing in summer and winter and was a huge Blue Bomber fan. He was a talented auto body technician and spent many years working in that trade in Winnipeg.
Upon the birth of his son Orion, in 2012, he experienced the joy of fatherhood with Orion and his sister Caidence whom he showered with much love.
In 2012, Chris received Jesus as his Lord and Saviour and was baptized in the Winnipeg River in 2018.
Chris will always be remembered for his willingness to help others and for his impish smile.
His life can perhaps be best summed up by the words in verses from a song by one of his favourite bands Bone Thugs- N- Harmony:
"You know don't nothing come easy, you gotta try real real hard
I've tried hard, but I guess I gotta try harder".
Chris is survived by his mother Debbie (Florent); father Harry; stepmom Janine; sister Kelly; son Orion; Caidence and their mother Amanda; stepbrother Jim (Leslie); step sisters Christine (Jason), Anna (Markus); as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
A Memorial Service will be held at Southland Church, Steinbach, MB at 11:00 AM on January 6, 2023 with a private interment at a later date.
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation in Chris' memory to Adult and Teen Challenge.
Always loved - Forever in our hearts
