Emmett DuRoche

July 9, 2014 - February 12, 2022

Emmett TC DuRoche, age 7 of Waconia, Minnesota journeyed to the Spirit World on Saturday, February 12, 2022 at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was born on July 9, 2014 in Minneapolis, Minnestoa the son of Matthew DuRoche and Tonya (Partelow) DuRoche. Emmett was so loved and cherished worldwide with over 1300 Facebook followers on Emmett's Abilities from Scotland to Hawaii and everywhere in between. He was a handsome fellow and relentless flirt! He was the grandson of not only one, but two retired pro wrestlers from the 70s – 80s and he loved to arm wrestle at 2:00 and 3:00 A.M. nightly. He also enjoyed laughing at all kinds of jokes.

He loved his BFF Ella Rae most of all though. Swimming, standing in his walker, walking, making videos, listening to all kinds of music, holding hands, going to the zoo, pumpkin farming with Jim and flying on his scooter board at home, were all some of his favorite things. His Momma Bear loved his three lips. This way she could kiss him more, than if he just had two lips!

Emmett was perfect and taught so many, so much in seven years, not to judge, to love without measure, to live life with joy to the fullest and best of your abilities! We shall never forget Emmett's Abilities.

Mom loves you Nu Nu Man!
