Mitchell “Mitch” Pellerin
1991 – 2019
Mitchell Pellerin was born on December 4, 1991 at Holy Family Hospital in Prince Albert, SK to Jacquie Pellerin (nee Kent) and Marcel Pellerin. He passed away on Saturday, August 10, 2019 in Saskatoon, SK at the age of 27 years.
Mitchell attended school at Turgeon Elementary and graduated from Carlton Comprehensive High School in 2010. He then attended post-secondary school at SIAST in Saskatoon, SK, completed his apprenticeship for steamfitter-pipefitter trade in 2017, and then completed his Journeyman trade in Steamfitter-Pipefitter red seal in 2017. He was a proud member of Local 179.
As a child he enjoyed soccer and judo, and curled in his teen years. Mitchell loved cooking, especially for his friends and roommates. He was the photographer for the family – he took pictures at all the special events and get-togethers!
He would spend as much time as he could with his grandma Lorna and grandpa Ed, always going to their cabin at Waskesiu, and going fishing with them every day that he could! He especially loved going to his family’s cabin at Emma Lake and would spend countless hours boating, tubing and fishing off the dock.
Mitchell is survived by his father Marcel and mother Jacquie; his younger brothers Pierce and Lorenzo; his favourite Uncle Brian and Auntie Gisele who were always there for Mitchell; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and good friends. Special thanks to Brody and the Schopp family, how they made Mitchell feel like part of their family.
Mitchell was predeceased by his grandparents Paul Pellerin and Simone Pellerin, and Edmond Kent and Lorna Kent.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at St. Joseph Parish, 260 25th Street East, Prince Albert, SK. with Howard Weitzel officiating. Interment will take place at a later date.
