In memory of
Justin Thomas NORDLUND
NORDLUND, Justin Thomas Kutxumkin / 'Jnords' Sunrise: August 3, 2000 - Sunset: April 10, 2017 It is with great sadness we advise that on April 10, 2017 Justin Thomas Nordlund passed away unexpectedly. Justin was born to his mother Jessica Ann Baker and father Christopher Thomas Nordlund on August 3, 2000 in North Vancouver. He proudly descended from the Fraser/Nordlund families of Scotland and Sweden; and the Nahanee/Baker family of Hawaiian Island and Kwakwaka'wakw, Cowichan and Squamish First Nations. Justin attended Xwemulchstn' Littlest Ones, Collingwood, Norgate Elementary and Carson Graham Senior Secondary and was known as quite a social butterfly. He volunteered for the Squamish Nation Pow Wow, the Justin Baker Memorial Golf Tournament, worked in a Daycare Centre and was an avid dog walker. He had a tremendous love for pets and all animals. Justin was affectionately known as 'Jnords' by close friends and teammates and can best be remembered for his mischievous smile and big heart and how he enjoyed helping people. He will be genuinely missed by his classmates at Carson Graham Senior Secondary, the Rez boys and girls at Xwemulchstn, and team players in football, wrestling, rugby, lacrosse, and friends from snowboard circuits on local mountains. His favourite past time was to fish both Capilano and Squamish Rivers with his papa Hook'em Joe, and he and his Dad loved to vacation in Hawaii. Justin will be deeply missed by his great-grandmother Alfreda Nahanee; grandparents Wilfred and Jan Baker, Thomas and Gail Nordlund; parents Jessica and Christopher; brother Shawn; best friend Joseph; girlfriend Celine; aunts Naida and Michelle; uncles Wilfred Jr., Darin, Daniel and Bryan. A prayer service will be held on Sunday, April 16 at 7:00 p.m. and a funeral service on Monday, April 17 at 10:00 a.m., both at Chief Joe Mathias Centre, 100 Capilano Road, North Vancouver.
