Jade Tyronne Black, lovingly known as "Jader" left this earth on Sunday, January 28, 2024, to be with Jesus and his parents, Millie and Jimmy, in Heaven. Jade was born on July 1, 1979 and passed away at the age of 44 in Edmonton, Alberta, where he was born. Honouring Jade’s memory are his daughter Jordan; his sisters Charmaine, Tasca, Tiana, and Tylan; his niece Colleen and her son Daxime; his nieces and nephews Asia, Shay, Rashad and Clyde in Saskatchewan, as well as his living aunties, uncles, and many cousins.
Fond memories of Jader as a kid include watching movie rentals together as a family. He loved action-hero movies and had a talent for mimicking the lines of his favorite movie characters. He was skilled in playing video games like Super Mario Bros and Zelda which he thoroughly enjoyed. Jade also loved music and was a huge fan of Michael Jackson often playing the Thriller album in his parent’s record room with his sisters. He would style his hair like Michael and practice dancing like him too. Jade was very active with lots of energy to burn. He channeled that energy into playing sports and participating in martial arts. He was skilled at soccer, hockey, and Taekwondo.
Jade had a great sense of humor; he was popular and made friends easily. He could often be found out and about exploring the neighborhood with his friends riding his BMX bike, skateboarding, or doing all kinds of innocent mischief that boys do. Jade loved to visit the Tyler family at his granny and grandpa’s place and play with his cousins. He loved attending holiday gatherings including Easter dinners at the Royal Fork Buffet. He also enjoyed visiting his family on the Siksika Nation reserve. Jade will be remembered for spending time with his dad who took him out to fun places such as Klondike Days, mini race car driving, and visiting family friends. Fond sibling memories include getting Slurpees and burgers at 7-11 and hanging out at the park; his sisters Charmaine and Tasca were always there to watch out for their baby brother.
Jade loved exploring the tourist streets of Vancouver on family vacations. He loved the ocean, mountains, and beaches. He enjoyed riding the sea bus and cycling in Stanley Park with his family. Jade always wanted to go back there and take in the beautiful scenery and excitement of the big city. Jade will deeply be missed by his family and friends. We will always keep his memories alive in our hearts knowing he is resting in total peace now free of all suffering. No memorial service will be held.
