February 6, 1958 – August 15, 2021
We are saddened to share the news of Brad’s sudden passing on Aug. 15, 2021 at the age of 63 in Lone Butte, BC. Brad was born in New Westminster, grew up in a house his dad, uncle, and grandfather had built in Coquitlam, and went on to live a full life in small communities throughout BC.
He is predeceased by his maternal and paternal grandparents, his dad, Graham, his mom, Myrna, and his infant daughter, Lorraine.
He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Victoria, his children, Donald (Nikki), Meghan (Bruce), Matthew (Bailey), Robert (Kara), 6 grandchildren, (Sofia, Kinsley, Benjamin, Liam, Olivia, and Karlie), and brothers, Kevin and Donald.
Brad completed high school in New Westminster and obtained his Heavy Duty Mechanics ticket in 1977 from the Terrace Northwest Community College where he also met his wife, Victoria.
He worked and lived in the Peace region of BC as a heavy duty mechanic, where he and Victoria raised their family, ran a farm, and were active in their church and community.
Brad suffered a stroke in 2014 and subsequently retired to Lone Butte, where he spent the last 7 years of his life building his dream shop and home with Victoria, helping his children with their homes, assisting neighbours with their mechanical issues, helping the church with maintenance and renovation projects, and enjoying time with his friends.
If you would like to make a donation in memory of Brad, please consider the Canadian Mental Health Association, or do something nice for a friend, neighbour, or family member in need.
A memorial service will be held at 1 pm on Sep. 25, 2021 at the Lone Butte Community Hall. COVID-19 precautions will be observed.
Rest well dear husband, father, grandfather, brother, nephew and friend. We will all miss you.
