Marvin “Marv” Lee Chitrinia

On Thursday September 22nd our lives forever changed. Marvin left this world to ride onto his next great adventure.

He is predeceased by his wife Tristan Chitrinia of 15 years, their son Ryder. His Father Erwin (Brenda) Chitrinia, Mother Ilda Labrecque (Reg), Brother Chris (Vernette) Chitrinia, Niece Christa, Nephew Zane and Grandfather Alferd (Carol) Labreque.

We lost a husband, father, brother, son, and friend who was by far the most compassionate, courageous, positive man I know. He put everyone ahead of himself. He was the biggest supporter of everything we did in life or even if I came to him with my crazy ideas/ dreams. He was Ryder’s biggest fan from building something in the garage to riding their dirt bikes/quads.

Marvin was a 15-year member with the Ironworkers Local 720. He was a dual ticketed tradesmen in Welding and Ironworking. He attended Lakeland college in Vermillion where he attained his Welding Certificate and Nait where he received his Ironworker certificate.

While at college in Vermillion Marv was a member of the college rodeo association and was a member of the CARA rodeo association and competed in Bull Riding.

His love for his friends and family was so obvious. Marvin made an incredible impact on every single person that he met. He would go out of his way to help anyone; it did not matter what the task was at hand. Marvin was full of life and he will be remembered for his energy, and his infectious laughter.

Marvin fought a long hard battle and gave it his all. He was the strongest person to have gone through it. He never once let it bring him down. He is now at rest pain free and can look down on us while enjoying his spiced rum and bud lights.

Love Always,

Tristan & Ryder

A celebration of his life will be held Saturday, October 22 at 1:00 p.m. at Silver Willow, 52123 Range Road 214 in Sherwood Park. Memorial donations may be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

“There is no need for Tears

I am at peace, my soul is at rest

There is no pain, I suffer not

For with your love, I was so blessed”
