Grandson to Annie and Norman Peltier (both predeceased) and Kathleen Naponse (Gordon, predeceased). Owen was loved and will be missed by many cousins, aunties and uncles in both Atikameksheng and Wiikwemkoong. Owen was a humble, knowledgeable young man with the culture and his spirituality. Owen always spoke Anishinabemowin with pride. Owen enjoyed spending his time at Momma’s Beach; as you would see him swimming, making sandcastles and going for walks by the shoreline with his two handsome sons. Owen enjoyed playing poker, loved shooting pool and playing hockey and baseball with his cousins and close friends. Owen was avid pike fisherman with his dad and brothers. Owen helped his dad with the store (Bob’s Smoke Shop). Many friends will remember Owen’s famous goal at Lil NHL in Sudbury. Wiky Playboyz were in the overtime one on one, Owen went out and took the draw. Well, faceoff came, and Owen lost the draw. The puck went between his legs, Owen stretched his legs back and got the puck and moved in forward. Owen went on a breakaway and SCORED!!! The whole team was so pumped as they won the game. That was Owen’s last year of Lil NHL and his dad was the coach. Owen was also gifted the “Commissioner’s Citation for Lifesaving” award for saving two young boys in Blind River. Owen will be greatly missed by the Rabbit Island Playboyz, Blind River Beavers, Wiky Lumberjacks, Northern Redmen, Atikameksheng Stingers, and Trixters Pool Team. Visitation was on Thursday, May, 5, 2022 at the Wiikwemikoong Arena from 5 pm. The traditional service was on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at 10 am. Cremation followed.
