Passing of UA Member Patrick Bryson

April 27, 2018

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful but sudden passing of Patrick James Bryson in the early morning of April 27, 2018 at the age of 62. Patrick will be forever missed, loved and remembered by his loving wife of 35 years, Alice Bryson. He will also be loved and sorrowfully missed, yet live on through his daughters Michelle (Erik) DeVries, Nicole (Jeff) Wiley, Patti Schultz, grandchildren Austin, Hannah, Hunter and Bella, mother Vi Bryson, sisters Linda (Vince) Fiorante and Marci Nast. Also left to grieve are the many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who had the honour of being a part of Patricks’ life. Patrick is predeceased by his father William Bryson, brother Billy Bryson and sister Janet Bryson.

Anyone who had the distinct pleasure of knowing Patrick is very much aware of the love that he had for life. It didn’t matter how big or small the life event was, Patrick approached everything the same, with unsurpassed passion. Whether it was being a loving husband, father, grandfather, working around the house, or being an incredible plumber, Patrick lived every day of his life incredible pride. And it always showed. Patrick leaves all of us with the value of having true pride in everything we do. He also challenges us to live with the unconditional love that he showed to all.

        Patrick enjoyed the simple things in life. He also wanted to keep the celebration
      of  his passing just as uncomplicated. As he requested, there will be no funeral
      service. As an alternative to grieving, remember Patrick as you individually knew
      him. Let his legacy live on through all of us. In lieu of flowers, please make a
      donation to the charity of your choosing in Patricks’ name.
