Skylar Michael Enns

August 18, 1999 – May 1, 2019

It is with heavy hearts that we share the devastating news of the passing of Skylar Michael Enns our dear son, brother, cousin, grandson and friend. On Wednesday May 1, 2019 at the age of 19 Skylar lost his battle as he struggled with depression, the darkness that he must have felt brings overwhelming sadness to those that love him.

He leaves to mourn his Mom, Nicole Dupuis Enns, Step Dad, Ray Reidle, brothers, Shadoe Enns (Sara Jordan), Deveraux Enns, Coby Enns (Sierra Peters) and Father, Duane Enns. Skylar had numerous, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins as well as his grandparents who loved him and are struggling with their grief surrounding this senseless loss. He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Leo Paul and JoAnn Dupuis who we know in our hearts are comforting him in heaven.

In his short life Skylar touched the hearts and lives of many people, he liked to make people laugh and had the most unique sense of humour. Sometimes those of us close to him didn’t quite understand his unique humour but he was always sure to make us laugh and put a smile on our faces. Growing up, Skylar loved technology computers and gaming as well as soccer, skateboarding, snowboarding and his BMX bike which he could be found spending many hours at the Morden Skate Park practicing his “moves”. He also loved to spend time going to his childhood friend, Jordan’s farm in Arnaud riding dirt bikes, snow tubing and many other activities which only the two of them will ever really know the trouble they managed to get into. Arnaud was where Skylar really felt at home. His love of snowboarding was shared with his brothers, this past January they were able to share a trip together to Panorama, BC which I know Shadoe, Deveraux and Coby will forever hold the memories deep in their hearts. In his high school years, Skylar worked for the City of Morden in the summers at the campground as well as a server at the many banquets at the Access Event Centre. Moving on from the City, he worked at the Morden Co-op in the deli department until his graduation from Morden Collegiate in 2017. Throughout his short life Skylar had a love for technology, computers and gaming he spent many hours learning, playing and teaching his love for technology. There were few questions he couldn’t answer. Instead of asking Google, many would seek Skylar’s help. He was Google to many family and friends. After graduation he took a position at the BellMTS store in Winkler/Morden where he worked for a year and then transferred to their store in Winnipeg at St. Vital Centre.  His career at BellMTS was Skylar’s happy place, he was working with technology, he was able to help many customers who tended to be technologically naive as he politely put it all while building friendships with co-workers.  He often spoke highly of many of his co-workers. As a family we would like to thank BellMTS/IDC Communications for their belief in Skylar and giving him the opportunity to work in an environment that he loved, as well as to all his customers who took the time to compliment him on a job well done.

Skylar touched the hearts of many throughout his life, we wish we could re-live all the moments but for now they will have to be cherished memories.  We never want to say good-bye so let’s just say, until we meet again. Skylar you were loved by so many, we only wish you could have felt the love not the darkness.

My baby you were my sunshine, love you forever, love you for always….Mom

Funeral service at the Access Event Centre on Monday May 13, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. Ash interment to follow at a later date at the Emerson Cemetery where Skylar will be laid to rest with his maternal Grandparents. In lieu of flowers friends have set up the “Skylar Enns Trust Account” donations can be made at any Access Credit Union Branch to assist the family with the significant cost of bringing him home. Remaining dollars will be used to help raise awareness of mental illness/suicide and the impact on our youth, their families and the community.
