Middleton; Wilfred Brent. November 8, 1943 – April 5, 2014. Brent was born in Regina, Saskatchewan on November 8, 1943. He came to Vancouver when he was two months old. His growing up years were spent in North Vancouver. It was there he met Merle and they were married. The family moved to ten acres in Arnold where they raised their family. Brent was baptized in the Arnold M.B. Church where he was an active member leading the adult Sunday School and a Bible study group. The next move was to Chilliwack where he joined the Sardis Community Church and he gained a warm, loving supportive church family that he was truly blessed to have. Brent worked as a driver/salesman for Dairyland for most his working years and retired at age 48. Brent enjoyed and was so proud of this three sons and their families.
He leaves behind his wife Merle of 49 years and 3 sons, Brook Wilfred, Lonny Wallace (Fiona), Ben Coulter (Meghan) as well as 7 grandchildren. He was predeceased by his daughter Laurie Kathleen (Feb. 19, 1966); brothers and sisters, Larry (Shelley), Leigh (Pat) and Elaine. He felt truly blessed and was ready to move onto the next stage of his life. He passed from this life to the next on April 5, 2014 due to complications from COPD. He knew that earth was not his destination but he surely enjoyed his journey through it. We who are left will share many happy memories, remembering his sense of humour and fun. A memorial service will be held at Sardis Community Church, 45625 South Sumas Rd., Chilliwack, BC on Monday, April 28, 2014 at 2:00 pm.
Everyone is welcome to join the family for this celebration of Brent’s life.
