Eugene Chamberland

May 6, 1957 - June 29, 2020


Eugene Michael Chamberland passed away on June 29, 2020, after a brief battle with an aggressive form of liver cancer. Eugene was 63 years young.

Eugene was born on May 6, 1957 in British Columbia, Canada by mother Georgie and father Robert Chamberland. Eugene had a deep connection and love for his parents. He attended Burnaby North Secondary and had a long career as an Owner Operator and Heavy Machine Operator. He was a gifted musician sharing his talent with his loved ones.

Eugene married the love of his life Kimberly Chamberland in 1987, but not before asking son Christopher for Kimberly’s hand in marriage. That same year they welcomed their first daughter Jasmine Eugene Kimberly Chamberland. In 1990 they welcomed their second baby girl Ashley Fern Chamberland. Christopher, Jasmine and Ashley brought tremendous joy to Eugene’s life as he watched them blossom into strong and independent adults.

Eugene was a survivor and faced tremendous adversities while on this earth that he was able to overcome with his strong resilience. The common memories of Eugene were that he was – “Gene Gene the Dancing Machine”, he lit up the room with his fearless personality and tremendous musical talent. He was sensitive and wore his heart on his sleeve, from giving you his last dollar to saving wounded animals. He kept every Father’s Day card and picture his children drew, even report cards. He was always there to give advice and simply listen whenever anyone needed it.

Eugene became a grandfather two months before his passing where he was able to meet his first grandson Kilian and play his guitar for him. Eugene was also alive to know that his first granddaughter Audrina was to be born. Although, Eugene passed before meeting Audrina his kind spirit will live on in his grandchildren.

Eugene’s children, and Kimberly were by his side at his time of death. They gave him laughter, beautiful memories and closure with so many long-lost friends and family at the end of his life.

In addition to Kimberly, Christopher, Jasmine and Ashley – Eugene is survived by his brother Bobby.
