       BYWATER, Fynn Alasdair

(October 14, 2008 to April 14, 2015). 

 

A strong, passionate, beautiful and thoughtful little boy, filled with wonder and potential, Fynn filled his world with smiles, laughter and goodness.

Beloved son of Margaret Isabelle Wallace and best friend of father David Scott Bywater. Adored grandson of Jan and Phil Bywater, and the late Wendy and Alasdair Wallace.  Forever cherished by Nicola and Shane, Elizabeth and family.  Admired friend, mentor, and “Fynnie-Binny” to cousins Zev and Amaia.  Gentle friend to schoolmates at Humphrey Public School.

Born in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Fynn embraced his six and a half years with an adventuresome spirit.  Before setting foot in Canada in his second year, he experienced more nations, cultures and cuisines than most people do in a lifetime.

Fynnie was a reader, wooden-block architect, chef, master Lego builder, artist, tree-fort pirate- ship captain, sandbox dump-truck driver, nature enthusiast, dock-jumping cannon-baller, singer and drummer, treasure hunter extraordinaire, giggling bedtime-dancer and super snuggler. Fynn endeared himself to virtually everyone whose life he touched; strangers on travels, his extended family, the White Squall family, and close friends in the Parry Sound area.   His smile and infectious giggle warmed the hearts of all he met.

Fynnie, your sudden and tragic death has left us all reeling. You skipped into our lives and hearts and enriched our world in countless ways we will never forget.  We’ll forever hold you in our minds, in our dreams and in our memories.  Keep on dancing, love, to your Sky Full of Stars. We love you so much.

A celebration of Fynn’s life will be held from 1:30 – 3:30pm on Sunday April 26th at the Seguin Valley Golf Club, 144 Badger Road, Seguin, ON P2A 2W8. A brief remembrance will occur at 2:00pm.

In lieu of flowers,  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Fynn Bywater Outdoor Explorers Fund, a fund to encourage outdoor exploration and play. Donations can be made by cheque to the "West Parry Sound District Museum- earmarked for the Fynn Bywater Fund” and you will be provided a charitable receipt. Alternatively, funds may be deposited directly to the Fynn Bywater Bywater Outdoor Explorers Fund at the Kawartha Credit Union.”
