It is with profound sadness the family announces the unexpected passing of our dear boy, Tristan Joseph Webb, age nine, on Thursday, April 12, 2018.
Tristan was born in Thunder Bay, Ont. on May 20, 2008. He came into the world early at 34 weeks and was a strong little fighter from the start.
He lived in Fort Frances for the first couple of years, then the family returned to Thunder Bay.
Tristan loved the outdoors, whether it was camping at Dog Lake with Dad, Michelle, and siblings or at Whitefish hunting and camping with Papa Morris & Grandma Buddy. He also loved to travel to Fort Frances and Finland to visit Grandma Roxy and Papa Dan.
He loved his time with special cousins Noah, Nadia, Declan, Griffin, Gage, Emily, and Peyton, and had frequent sleepovers at Auntie Lisa and Uncle Marc's and Uncle Mike and Auntie Rebecca's cabin.
Tristan was a good big brother to his younger siblings. Learning and teaching them or just pulling pranks on them. He was very close to his sister, Briiana, as they rarely were apart.
Tristan loved hockey and played his first year of hockey for West Fort Rangers Atoms. He earned a couple of MVPs. On April 18, 2018, Tristan was awarded “most improved player” award at the wind-up banquet. His parents accepted the trophy along with his retired jersey #5.
Tristan was blessed with a large, loving family. He will be missed by his parents, Natasha Nault (Mike Jaggard) and Jason and Michelle Webb; siblings, Briiana, Charlie, Brooklyn, and Olivia; grandparents, Cheryl and Morris McLean, Cheryl and Dan Bragg, Loretta and Tony Difelice, and Elizabeth Jaggard (Greg); and great-grandparents, Evelyn Hoogsteen, Wilbert and Rita Peterson, and Eileen Bragg.
