Wade is survived by his wife, Charmaine Tienkamp; his mother, Marie Nelson-Bougerolle, and father, Leonard Bougerolle; his children, Nathan Morris-Bougerolle, Brittany Jones, Dillon Bougerolle, Nate Hunter, Tye Kettles and Maxum Bougerolle-Kettles; his stepchildren, Celia Tienkamp and Shaylena Tienkamp; as well by his grandchildren; siblings Bernice (Perry) Whipple, Lyn Brian (Rose) Bougerolle, Darryl Bougerolle, Darren (Bonnie) Bougerolle, Dinelda (Harmen) Hoogkamp, Delina Beaton (George Philips), Tammy Beaton Richards and Clayton (Melissa) Beaton.
Wade was predeceased by his biological father, Wayne Beaton, and brother Adam Beaton.
Wade was born and raised in Pincher Creek, Alta., on a large farm. He may not have had an easy time in life, but he made many everlasting friendships, loved ones and handfuls of adventures.
He worked many jobs over the years, mainly consisting of truck driving, construction and hands-on auto body work. He enjoyed a list of hobbies, which included fixing vehicles, wood working, upcycling, anything he could get his hands on to help a person or two.
Wade was a selfless man who took great pride in all of his children and grandchildren, near and far. No one will ever forget his loving, supportive and go-getter personality. He would drop anything he was doing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, something valued by all his friends and family. The world will miss such a kind and beautiful soul, as will the rest of us.
A service will take place at a later date.
