Dionne Fredrick Constant was born Monday, April 7, 1986 at The Pas, Manitoba. As a young boy, Dionne was very outgoing and enjoyed spending time with his friends and cousins. They often went on long walks in the bush hunting chickens and ducks and snaring rabbits. Dionne also loved to play soccer with the Big Eddy Warriors and road hockey year round. One of his best friends was the late David Azure, both of whom liked to be mischievous and they would build forts together in the bush at Carrot River.
Dionne was a very caring person to everybody that he crossed paths with. He was very respectful to people that were older than him, such as his aunties, uncles, cousins and elders. He would make sure that everybody felt important and he received these teachings from his mom and great-grandmother Virginia Cook. Whenever he saw you, he wanted to see a smile on your face and would try to make you smile. He had a very good sense of humour and liked to tease.
Beloved dad, son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, nephew and cousin. Dionne passed away accidentally Friday, October 8, 2010 at The Pas, Manitoba, at the age of 24 years.
