With deepest sorrow, we give notice that Chance unexpectedly passed away on June 14, 2019, at the age of 28. He passed with his family and closest friends by his side.

Chance was born in Red Deer, AB. He excelled at all sports, especially hockey, and his greatest love, snowboarding. He was most at home when outdoors: fishing, hiking, hunting and playing with his beloved dogs, Tombo and Rosa. Chance never passed up an adventure and was always up for a good time. He loved riding his motorcycle and cruising the countryside.

Chance will be deeply missed by his father, Grant Taylor; step-father, Rene Deschamps; brothers, Chris Gunsch (Tara), Nick Gunsch (Dee-Anna); his nieces and nephews, Casey, Jesse, Madison, Mason, and Morgan; and his closest friends, Devin Knafelc, Cayle Olson, Josh Edquist (Jenny), Jacob Wagner, Kerrie Wagner, and Mike Cormack. Chance was predeceased by his mother, Colleen Deschamps.
