Obituary

The tragic accidental death of Chase happened April 14, 2010. Chase Anthony Cordes was born June 16, 1994 in Saskatoon St. Paul's Hospital. He captured your heart the first moment he responded to you. From the glint in his eyes to the quick full face smile, Chase loved life and every opportunity for a new challenge. When he learned to walk his love of the farm, and all that it entailed, became his life. He was an awesome worker; whether it was trucking grain, swathing, baling, picking bales, working with the cows and even shingling with Kriz, Chase gave it his all. He loved looking after the cattle with his dad. He would be awake...
The tragic accidental death of Chase happened April 14, 2010. Chase Anthony Cordes was born June 16, 1994 in Saskatoon St. Paul's Hospital. He captured your heart the first moment he responded to you. From the glint in his eyes to the quick full face smile, Chase loved life and every opportunity for a new challenge.
When he learned to walk his love of the farm, and all that it entailed, became his life. He was an awesome worker; whether it was trucking grain, swathing, baling, picking bales, working with the cows and even shingling with Kriz, Chase gave it his all.
He loved looking after the cattle with his dad. He would be awake and ready to go with his dad in the morning, even before he started school. He could remember each cow's number, her calf and whether she would be a good one to keep for another year.
Chase's favorite colour was red, which was very appropriate as he played hockey for the Rosetown Red Wings. His absolute love of hockey is what he was best known for. From the first time he laced up his skates he ran on them to compete with his big brother. He enjoyed being part of a team in his role as a defenseman. He would often beg his mom to stay in after practice, or to come in for free ice to practice and improve his shooting. He played defense most of the time for the teams from 1999 to the first year of midget. He was also part of the Rosetown Provincial Bantam Team that went on to become the Northern Provincial Champions.
Hunting was yet another love; even when he had to learn to shoot with his left eye. He brought down many a quarry as shown by the awards he received. Another sport he enjoyed was golfing. His easy swing would get the ball more than a good distance down the fairway.
Best friends Spencer Gilchrist, Zack Walker, Brody Mireau and Kurt Winny could often be found hanging around together.
Chase's preferred morning drink was coffee. His favorite places to drink it were Sno Pro Sports, Co-op Agro, Mid Tech Mechanical and Uncle Perry's.
He was saving his hard earned money to buy his first truck. As Chase would say "there was no use having a girlfriend when you could not pick her up".
Left to cherish in his memories are his parents, Ron and Lee-Ann, his big brother Cody and younger sister Chelsey. Also family members grandma Barb (Slocombe), great-grandma D (Doreen Hill), Auntie Laurie, Uncle Lyle (Jodi), Aunt Shirley (Ken), Uncle Buck (Murray & Sandra), Auntie Connie (Norm); cousins Chad (Krista), Lisa (Jon), Lana (Alex), Ryan, Todd, Derek, Kylie, Shayleen, Megan, Caitlyn, Robert and Micaela; second cousins Tigris and Aurora; and many more loving relatives.
With him now are Grandpa Dave, Grandma Jean, Grandpa Bob and infant second cousin Legend.
A celebration of his life was held April 17, 2010 at the Rosetown Civic Centre with Reverend Jo-Ann Hills officiating. Auntie Connie led the ceremony with a saxophone playing of Kumbaya. Words of Remembrance were given by his dad, his brother Cody was the Urn bearer, and his sister Chelsey was the flower bearer. Spencer Gilchrist carried Chase's Jersey, while Chase's coaches were the ushers and his teammates formed the honour guard. Music for the celebration was from Chase's IPod and a collection of memories was shared in a PowerPoint presentation. Chase's favorite chocolate chip cookies were served following the service. Interment followed at the Rosetown Cemetery. Memorial donations are made to the RMAA. Clements Rosetown Funeral Home was entrusted with the funeral arrangements.
