A statement was released today (Monday, Oct. 9, 2017) by the family of TRU vice president Christopher Seguin with respect to his recent death. News reports that published the statement said it was released due to incorrect rumours within the community.

On behalf of the Seguin family:

Christopher Seguin passed away on Sept. 22, 2017, in hospital due to an accidental overdose that occurred in his hotel room. This in no way diminishes Christopher as a loving husband and father, as well as a cherished son, brother and friend to all who knew him.

While our family had hoped that our privacy would be respected, we choose not to dwell on our deep pain and sorrow and encourage all to remember Christopher through times shared together. We can all treasure his smiling face and warm embrace at gatherings dedicated to the betterment of others.

Our family appreciates the kind gestures of many friends towards us at this difficult time and we encourage anyone who knew Christopher to attend a celebration of life at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14 at the Calvary Community Church. In lieu of flowers, you can best express your condolences and honour Christopher’s memory by donating to a trust fund for his two young children which is available at any Kamloops CIBC branch. The family will be making no further statements.
