Caelin William Bond Smith left us suddenly but peacefully on Sunday evening, December 9, 2007 at 30 years of age.

He will be lovingly remembered by his mother Joan Inkster-Smith and his cherished sister, Lisa of Nelson BC. He is also survived by his Nana, Betty Inkster of Vernon, his stepmother Irene Smith of Powell River, his cherished soulmate Sarah Popoff of Kamloops, and many cousins, aunts and uncles of whom he was very fond.

Caelin was predeceased by his father, Michael Bond Smith in August of this year.

Caelin was born in Vernon on July 11, 1977 and spent most of his childhood in Vernon and Kamloops. His passion for Celtic art showed in his body art. His love for animals and children were evident in how they were attracted to him.

The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the paramedics, the RCMP and the coroner for their compassionate assistance, and also to congregation of Gateway City Church.

A Celebration of Caelin’s life was held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, December 15, 2007 in the Gateway City Church, 163 Oriole Road, with Pastor Len DenBraber officiating.

Donations of remembrance in Caelin’s name to the S.P.C.A. 1211 – 8th St., Kamloops BC V2B 2Y3, would be appreciated by the family, in lieu of flowers.
