Brent Bradley passed away peacefully on April 8, 2013 with his family by his side. Brent was born in Trail, BC August 12, 1958 to Jeannette and Ernie Bradley.
Brent was predeceased by his father in 2004, his mother in 2011, and his brother-in-law Elmer Olson in 2011.
He is survived by his brother Morley Ballard (Georgina), sister Amber Olson, and extended family Darren and Francine Ballard and Cindy Marceau.
He is also survived by his beloved grandnieces and friends Deanie Ballard, Dara Woytos (Spencer), Jessica Marceau and grandnephews Gavin Ballard and little Damian. Brent had many friends and acquaintances during his life and will be missed by all, especially Dixon his roommate, and pet cat.
Brent was an avid sports fan. He spent many hours watching any and all sports activities on the tube.
Brent was seriously injured in a diving mishap in 1977, which rendered him a quadriplegic. This did not stop him from being outgoing and as independent as he could be, for the most part he displayed his inherent good humour. In spite of all that he had been through, he still had faith in the promise that is found in the Bible at Isaiah 35:5-6.
The family would like to thank all the home support workers and friend Blair Coombs who made it possible for him to stay at home. Also we thank all the workers in ICU who took such loving care of Brent during his stay in hospital.
Brent has requested that there be no service, however if so desired donations can be made to the Canadian Paraplegic Society at 780 SW Marine Drive, Vancouver BC V6P 5Y7.
