Welcome to KORU Cremation | Burial | Ceremony

With heavy hearts we mark the unexpected and tragic death of Alex Moreau who was loved by many. He passed away June 3rd, 2021 at age 41.

Born in Victoria BC, he lived most of his life in Vancouver BC. A man of great passion, wit and humour, intelligence, and compassion he lived a life of myriad accomplishments from providing first aid supplies/equipment and protection to front line western ally medics in the middle east, to a sellout of artisan clothes at Vancouver’s “one-of-a-kind” show, to motorcycle rider and mechanic extraordinaire, to successful entrepreneur, to becoming an “Iron Man”, and more. There was never a still moment in Alex’s life.

He is survived by his well-loved son Seth (mother Michelle), his sister Clare, his beloved partner Paula, his mother Jeannine (Frank), and a long list of extended family and friends.

There will be a celebration of Alex’s life in Vancouver on October 16th 2021 with details to follow.

We welcome your stories and photos of Alex.

Alex, Clare and Mum, early days

    I am sad to hear of Alex passing. Finding out in August 2022. He and my daughter were high school sweethearts. I have fond memories of he and I would dancing in our kitchen in Victoria. His family was so gracious to our daughter. He helped us with our dog.
    Sending best aloha to his family and friends.

    I just found out today about Alex’s passing. He and I started an art and music magazine together back in 2006 during our My Space days. It was a hit with the underground music and art community. I remember Alex as an extremely results based go getter. If he got a thought in his head he didn’t stop until it was completed. And I loved that about his character. In terms of achievements he was off the charts. He had an amazing amount of energy and creativity. We travelled to Bulgaria, Sweden and England to cover stories and do interviews. I was always impressed by his drive, knowledge, experience and his exceptional focus when it came to deadlines and schedules. He was a great friend and always had my back where ever we went. I send my condolences to the Moreau family. But I would cherish the opportunity to speak to his family first hand. I miss him very much. If there is anything I can do to support his family please let me know.

    I just learned today that Alex has passed away. Made me very sad. I was a client of his construction company, I would see him once a year to help with our house in Vancouver.

    he talked about his varied interests in life and sports. He had warm and welcoming energy.

    my condolences to his family & friends.

He was a spirited child, an intense teenager and a directed adult.

    I remember Alex as a sweet very cute little guy, always interested in whatever was going on – a true bright light.
    Even though he didn’t always get everything right he was always fabulous, larger than life and so interesting to be around. Time to rest now Alex.

    Alex was always on the move…. as his mum I often experienced such energy, at times uncertain and yikes not particularly predictable, however, he always moved with great intention to be a child his mum was proud of. Alex never ceased to amaze or surprise me; a complex child growing up with never a dull moment. He could be wild and not so easy to manage, yet expressing compassionate/passionate qualities through the love he showed his family, his rambunctious nature, his industrious enterprises, the sports he took up, and his art work extraordinaire. He possessed qualities of high energy that ran the gamut of being loving, creative, intelligent, athletic, daring, and a mother’s challenge.
    I love you Alex and wish you a safe harbor and a peaceful resting place where you know were and always will be well loved.

    My first memories of Alexis Constant Moreau were from the day my sister Jeannine brought him home from the hospital in Victoria. We were in the orange bedroom at the Moreau family home, and I took at least a roll of Black and White 35mm film of Alexis as he scrutinized, over his mother’s shoulder, the big, black cyclops of the camera pointed at him, and me behind it laughing at his sweet, inquisitive, newborn face. Who knows what he made of that?
    He grew into his intense intelligence and made the world a better place. My heart breaks for you Jeannine, Clare, Seth and the whole extended family- Alex was cherished and will always be in our hearts. Love, Suzanne and family

    Jeannine, Seth, Paula, Clare, Frank, Michelle and all the family…..I was so devastated to hear that Alex had passed away recently, and have been thinking of you all so much. Jeannine, I recall our many conversations back in the 1990s and 2000s where we shared our stories and Alex and Clare were always front and centre. So enjoyed hearing about your wonderful children! Sending much love during this time of great sorrow and I know that you will also be sharing your precious memories of Alex and I hope this brings comfort. Take good care.
