Our lives were forever changed on Sunday, January 16th, 2022 when our precious son, Pedro Daniel Umaña, born May 3rd, 2006, lost the battle against depression. At only fifteen years young Pedro’s life had a profound effect on everyone who knew him. Pedro was born in Calgary, AB and raised in Lafleche and Moose Jaw, SK. He spent his youngest years playing hockey and baseball, camping, and getting into mischief with his best friend Hudson Tallon. He attended Lafleche Central School until 4th grade, he continued on at St. Michaels School in Moose Jaw completing 8th grade. Pedro was half way through grade 10 at Vanier Collegiate when his high school career ended. Pedro was a funny kid. He was also a protector, a strong shoulder to lean on, and always the first to help anyone. His passion for sports was a huge influence for his sisters Sara and Maria, and his Xbox and gaming skills were shared with his brother Evan. The numerous and amazing experiences Pedro has enjoyed through sports has been the foundation for many happy friendships. Our “hockey family” grew every year with each new team and so did the friendships. Pedro’s most prized possession has to be his Saskatchewan All Stars Baseball Jersey that he wore playing in Langley, BC in the Little League Canadian Championship in 2019.
Left behind to cherish his memory are his parents, Victor and Susan; siblings: Sara, Evan, and Maria; grandpa, Rod Williams; grandma, Lois Nangreaves; great-grandma, Dolores Nangreaves; Abuelita, Olga Umaña; Tia’s (Aunties): Lilian, Holly, Nancy and Caitlin; Tio’s (Uncles): Clinton, Danilo, Jared, and Hector; his cousins that he loved so much: Mateo, Cris, Eva, Dayanara, Malachi, Malia, Emerson, Miah, William, and Esaias; as well as numerous second cousins and great-Aunts and uncles that loved him so much.
