Aug, 7, 1937 – Jan. 22, 2012
Bryce passed away peacefully January 22, 2012 at Heritage Village Care Home in Chilliwack after a very long battle with an illness resulting from cancer in 1994. He spent most of his life living in Agassiz with his wife of 52 years Letty. Bryce was born August 7, 1937 in Arlee, Saskatchewan and moved to the Agassiz area with his family in 1943.
He is survived by his wife Letty; sons: Dean (Anne), Daryl (Janet); and seven grandchildren, as well as his sisters and brothers: Ellen, Stewart (Doreen), Muriel (Mike), and Albert (Barb). Bryce was predeceased by his parents Agnes and Frederick.
As well as being a devoted husband and father, Bryce was an avid fisherman and hunter. If he wasn’t fishing the Vedder River or fly-fishing any one of the lakes in BC or wandering the hills hunting he was found at home enjoying his friends and family. Bryce spent the majority of his working years in the logging industry before retiring in 1994 due to his battle with cancer.
The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Heritage Village and especially the ladies in “Aquadel”. Also, special thanks to “Dr. Mac”,
(Dr. MacIntosh) for his incredible care and support through all the years of Bryce’s illness.
In lieu of flowers a donation to the BC Cancer Foundation in Bryce’s name would be appreciated.
A celebration of life in Bryce’s honor will be held at a future date.
The family would like to express their gratitude for the many phone calls and flowers already received.
