Devin Philip Demers
January 26th 1982 – November 2, 2019
It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Devin Philip Demers on November 2, 2019 at the age of 37 years. Devin was born January 26, 1982 at Prince Albert, SK. As a young boy he was active in sports. He played hockey and fastball but in his early teens he quickly discovered his real passion in life which was music. He received his first drum set at eleven years old and from then on drumming was a big part of his life. His musical talent didn’t stop at his drum kit. He also taught himself to play the harmonica, guitar and bongos; all within the past few years. He even sang a little and especially enjoyed playing guitar and singing for his nephews. It was quite something to watch him play guitar, harmonica and sing at the same time. He was currently the drummer for The Big River Boys and was thrilled to be a part of their live performances in front of crowds; but he also enjoyed jamming with just his bandmates. Devin was currently employed with Cowan Enterprises in Meadow Lake. He had completed his first year electrician in hopes to continue and eventually earn a journeyman’s certificate. Although Devin’s number one passion was playing music, he enjoyed many other hobbies including reading, especially books about history; strategy board games; and his favorite tv show, Real time with Bill Maher. Devin’s friends were very special to him, some of his friendships spanned well over two decades and we know that he will be greatly missed not only by family but also many friends. When we think about Devin we will remember above all his contagious laughter, his love for family and friends and his incredible musical talent. He is lovingly remembered by: his parents, Richard and Betty-Ann Demers, his siblings: Ryan Demers (Kaitlyn Bather) of Kamloops, BC, Jenna (Brett) Dumais of Saskatoon, SK, his nephews, Sullivan and Elliot Dumais and also numerous other relatives and friends. Devin was predeceased by: His maternal grandparents, Delbert and Patricia Price and His paternal grandparents Bruno and Lucille Demers. A Celebration of Devin’s Life was held Friday, November 8, 2019 at 2:00 pm at the Big River Community Hall.
