Lives of Descoteau brothers celebrated

Ball tournament honours siblings separated three years by tragedies

Dustin and Derek Descoteau have a loving group of family and friends who won’t soon forget the brothers.

The Double Ds and Ellison Angels, the memorial team for the boys and the family and close friend team, led the gathering of teams during the second annual Descoteau brothers memorial orthodox ball tournament in Duncan.

The crowd favourite, Ellison Angels, wound up first in the tournament. The event was held on the first weekend since the three-year anniversary of Derek’s murder in Chemainus. Dustin died in a car accident three years earlier.

This is a great example of the community coming together to remember these guys, who both died so tragically early.
