Music programs to benefit from Couturier event

Felix Couturier will be missed by many but his legacy will live forever

Felix Couturier loved his music and loved to share it with people. He wanted to make a difference to the community and that love can go on and be shared through his one wish before passing away and that was to donate any money instead of buying flowers or giving donations to the cancer foundation.

A celebration of life was held on May 4 for the former resident of East Blackpool at the Wells Gray Inn conference room. Later that evening a jam session was at the Wells Gray pub. Both rooms were kindly donated by Bonnie and Jeff Ruttan, owners and longtime family friends.

The Blue Loon Restaurant raised over $1,000 for the Fexix Couturier music fund. Doug Fenwick and Jeannette Ketch, close friends of the Couturier family and owners of the restaurant, decided that all of April’s coffee sale monies would help to make a difference.

 

Felix Couturier will be missed by many but his legacy will live forever. Both Clearwater school’s music departments are the recipients of the monies raised.
