Celebration of life for Aiden Serr

Hundreds attend in Maple Ridge on Saturday

There was standing room only in Hundreds of people packed into Maple Ridge Baptist Church on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the life of Aiden Serr.

There were many police officers in attendance, in both the red serge of the Ridge Meadows RCMP and the blue uniforms of the Abbotsford Police Department, as the young man’s father Mike Serr is the deputy chief of the Abbotsford Police.

He was killed in a single-vehicle crash on the Lougheed highway in the early morning hours of Nov. 13.

There were also many young people in attendance, as Aiden Serr was well popular and also a standout athlete.

The young man planned to become a photographer for National Geographic, and some of his artistic work was on display.

The speakers included his father, mother Kirsten and sister Kiana, numerous friends and Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge MP Dan Ruimy, who knew Serr as a member of his campaign team.

He was a film and biology student at Simon Fraser University, which has created a memorial fund to honour him.

A verse on the back of the program, by Nick Peters, read in part:

I believe it’s time to go

One of my brothers

Never far, always near

I bid you adieu Aiden Serr
