November 3, 1989 - October 9, 2017
This beauty of a soul left us all for better shores doing what he loved most….fishing and spending time with his buddies….enjoying life. His loss will be felt immensely by his loving parents Craig & Debbie Schmuland, his sister Tanya (Joel) Long and their children, Tanner’s only niece and nephew, Jillian & Ben; his sister Brittany (Josh); his Grandfather’s Ron Allan and Roy Schmuland (Billy); Great Grandmother Selma Schmuland; numerous Aunts, Uncles and Cousins, all of whom he loved so much; his very dear friend Ryleigh Dzenick; and he wouldn’t want us to leave out his beloved cat, Jeffrey Winston “Boots”. Tanner graduated from Highwood High in 2007 and SAIT’s Architectural Technology program. He was handy at any building trade he tried, from roofing and framing to tiling and flooring, whatever it took to perform house reno’s. He had grits and wasn’t afraid to try anything. Most recently his work took him away from home for fairly long stretches but also afforded him the luxury to take off and travel which was one of his many passions. He was a sports enthusiast, especially loving golf, hockey, snowboarding, long boarding, all water sports, long distance running and any thing else that presented a challenge. To know Tanner was to love him….he always wore a big grin and was armed with a wicked, fun sense of humor, never failing to entertain us all with his many Tannerisms. He lived large in his 27 years….he had an adventurous spirit and every day was a big adventure that he rarely wasted on frivolities….hanging with his good buddies wasn’t a frivolity and was a close second to the importance of being with his family. We always looked forward to him breezing home for a surprise visit where he loved to talk philosophy since a young age and share his views of the world….which both intrigued him and bewildered him, all at the same time. Tanner, we couldn’t possibly love you or miss you any harder….take your free spirit kid and soar. We’ll catch you on the other side! A Celebration of Tanner's Life will be held on Saturday, October 21st at 1:00 p.m. at the High River Full Gospel Tabernacle. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Canadian Canine Search Corps, Box 1, Site 16, RR #1, Cochrane, AB T4C 1A1, www.caninesearchcorps.com . Caring for the family is Lyle Reeves Funerals (Craig Snodgrass) of High River (403.652.4242).
