Stéphane Ebrotié

1992-2021

 

Stéphane est originaire de la Côte d’Ivoire où il a passé son enfance et une partie de son adolescence. Le 1er décembre 2006, il débarque au Canada en trombe avec François, son papa. Il faisait -30 ce jour-là, mais son sourire, dès son arrivée nous a tous réchauffé le cœur.

 

C’est ce sourire charmeur qui nous a tous et toutes marqué. S’il était timide et souvent peu bavard en groupe, son sourire, lui, était toujours présent et rayonnait. Chaque fois qu’on le rencontrait, on avait droit au plus beau des sourires et à une accolade bien sentie. Il aimait les gens, échanger, rire, partager et aussi les taquiner, particulièrement ses frères et ses sœurs.

 

Stéphane ne donnait pas dans la demi-mesure, comme en témoigne sa passion pour la musique, le basketball, le soccer et les sports en général, passions qu’il partageait avec son papa.

 

Quand Stéphane aimait, il aimait pour vrai : sa maman, Suzanne Aboudou, son papa, François, sa deuxième maman, Janice, ses sœurs, ses frères, sa grande famille canadienne, sa grande famille ivoirienne et ses amis. Il avait suffisamment de cœur pour tout le monde. Il aimait les gens, les écouter, les aider.

 

La vie nous l’a cruellement enlevé beaucoup trop tôt. Il nous manquera tous et toutes énormément. De là-haut, il chante, il danse, mais surtout il nous sourit. C’est de ça dont nous nous rappellerons : De son amour pour sa famille, pour les gens, de l’étincelle dans ses yeux et de son sourire.

 

 

Stéphane Ebrotié

1992-2021

 

Stéphane spent his childhood and part of his teen years in his native country of Côte d’Ivoire. He arrived in Canada with his father François on December 1, 2006. The temperature was -30 that day, but Stéphane’s smile immediately warmed everyone’s hearts.

 

Indeed, his charming smile has left its mark on all of us. He may have been shy and often stayed quiet in social settings, but his radiant smile was always on display. Every time you met him, you could expect the most beautiful smile and a heartfelt embrace. He loved talking, laughing, and sharing with others—not to mention teasing them, especially his brothers and sisters.

 

Stéphane was never one to go half-in. Like his father, he was passionate about music, as well as basketball, soccer, and sports in general.

 

When Stéphane loved, he did so with all his heart. He adored his mother, Suzanne Aboudou; his father, François; his second mother, Janice, his brothers and sisters; his extended Canadian family; his family in Côte d’Ivoire; and his friends. He had enough love for everyone. He loved people, listening to them, helping them.

 

Fate has taken him from us far too soon. We will all miss him tremendously. He is surely smiling down on us, dancing, singing, and smiling. That’s what we will never forget: his love for his family and others, the spark in his eye, his smile.
