Condolences to the family of Christopher Michael McLellan



Christopher Michael

September 12, 2017

Christopher passed away suddenly on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 in Airdrie, AB at the age of 35. Christopher will be lovingly remembered by family and friends. Christopher was born in Drumheller and knew at an early age how special the Canadian Badlands are and pursued a career in tourism and marketing development after graduating from the University of Calgary. Christopher used his wealth of knowledge and heritage to promote the Canadian Badlands to visitors around the world. He worked with the Canadian Badlands Passion Play for more than 10 years. His role there ranged from ticketing, marketing, logistics, and gift shop management. He also had a leading role in getting the Canadian Icons in the Canadian Badlands concerts project off the ground. He ran many successful marketing campaigns for the Canadian Badlands big and small including the Spirit of the Badlands with Tom Jackson. He was instrumental in product development and ran the Visitor Information Centers for years. He drove the highways from Oyen to Milk River, east to Cypress Hills, west to Lethbridge, and up to Stettler with a passion to promote the place he calls home. Christopher is the spirit of the Badlands. Tom Jackson has quoted that the Badlands change people. Christopher is part of that spirit. A Celebration of Christopher’s Life will be held at a later date. Messages of condolence may be left for the family at Serving Drumheller and Surrounding Areas since 1997.
