Ethan Carmichael Denum

The B.C. water polo community, and the Fraser Valley family lost one its brightest stars and biggest smiles in Ethan Michael Denum. He will be remembered for his love of the game, which he excelled at as both an athlete and a coach. Ethan gave back to the sport of water polo as a referee, helping to grow the sport of water polo in British Columbia and saving countless tournaments through his willingness to work match after match. 

But more than that, we will miss the love he shared with his teammates, competitors, coaches, fellow referees and the water polo community at large. Everyone on the pool deck was a friend to Ethan, and he will be sorely missed by us all.


A prayer memorial service will be held for Ethan on Wednesday, Jan 11th at 7pm. All are welcome. A funeral mass will be held on Thursday, Jan 12th at 11am. Both will take place at Our Lady of Fatima Parish, 315 Walker Street, Coquitlam. Reception to follow in church basement.

" Your presence we miss,

Your memories we treasure,

Loving you always,

Forgetting you never. "

Thank you...
