Pvt Michel Lévesque, Jr
Birth: Sep. 15, 1982
Death: Nov. 17, 2007


Private, 3e Bataillon, Royal 22e Régiment (Van Doos), based in Valcartier, Québec. Aged 25, he was from Rivière-Rouge, QC and had deployed in the summer to serve with the Canadian contingent of NATO forces.

He was one of two Canadian soldiers and an Afghan interpreter killed when their LAV III light-armoured vehicle hit a roadside bomb about 40 km west of Kandahar city in the vicinity of Ma'sum Ghar. Three Canadian soldiers were also wounded in the explosion and evacuated by helicopter to the Multinational Medical Unit at Kandahar Airfield for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Pte Lévesque had proposed to his fiancée, Shany, just the week before while he was home on leave. (Their daughter Zoee was born in 2008). He is also survived by his parents, Michel Sr. and Elizabeth, four brothers, a sister and extended family.

Friends described him as a passionate hunter and fisherman who was always in a good mood. He had two years service in the military.

Recipient of Sacrifice Medal (posthumous)

Seventy-three soldiers and one diplomat have now died since Canada first sent troops to Afghanistan in 2002.

A private funeral service was held on December 8, 2007 at the Church of the Annunciation in Rivière-Rouge.
