It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Andre Edward Joseph Gervais on December 14, 2015 at the young age of 54. He was taken by the angels at Shuswap General Hospital with his loved ones by his side after a courageous battle with cancer.
Andre was born August 1, 1961 to Mae Mary and Edward Wilfred Gervais in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. Along his life journey he found himself in Salmon Arm, BC where he met the love of his life Robin, and her four children, all of whom he took under his wing as his own. Andre and Robin eventually married on July 8, 1996 and found that Salmon Arm was the place they wanted to call home.
Andre had a very strong love and intelligence for computers which led him to be a respectable business owner within the community. Andre opened Computer Ventures downtown Salmon Arm which he operated for approximately 20 years. In those 20 years he built very strong relationships with his customers and gained a vast amount of friendships which he held dearly in his heart.
Andre was very family oriented and had a strong love for his family and dogs. He cherished the time he got to spend with them and being with them was the one thing he loved most. He is survived, and will be deeply missed, by his wife Robin, his five children Brandon Gervais, Lee (Cristal) Glazebrook, Tammy Glazebrook, Rob Glazebrook, and Steven Glazebrook, his siblings Eugene (Lori) Gervais, Raymond (Cheryl) Gervais, Wanda (Sandy) Qually, and Theresa (Brian) Lemley, his six grandchildren Shannon, Elie, Landen, Holden, Joseph, and Annabelle, as well as nieces, nephews, and countless friends.
A celebration of life was held at Bowers Funeral Home Saturday, December 19, 2015. In lieu of flower, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Our family would like to thank everyone for their love and support during this difficult time.
