April 25, 2023
Brad Armstrong suddenly passed away on April 25, 2023 at the age of 49 at the Royal Inland Hospital surrounded by his loving family and amazing wife who never left his side. He is survived by his wife Krystal, children Hayleigh and Monty, parents Heather and John, sister Tracy (Justin), nephews Ben and Max, cousins David (Christa) and Dylan (Evgeniia), brother-in-law Ken (Matthew and Andrew), and many dear friends.
He was born on April 9, 1974, in Kamloops, BC and remained a resident his entire life. He always prided himself on being a “Westsyde boy”. Growing up, he loved playing hockey, being outdoors, and pulling pranks with his friends. Later, he raised his family and started his own metal roofing company Braddik Roofing and Sheet Metal which he owned and operated for almost 20 years. He always told his friends how much he loved his family, often expressing that he had “won the lottery”. In his spare time, he loved going hunting, fishing, spending time with his family, and going for walks around McArthur Island Park.
Anyone who knew Brad knows that he was generous and eager to help the community, his family, and friends in any way possible, from handing out sandwiches and water to the unhoused population to being a shoulder for people to cry on. He was also known for his special sense of humor, beautiful smile, and radiant energy that would light up any room he walked into. He impacted so many peoples’ lives and it is without a doubt that he will be deeply missed.
Brad’s family will host a celebration of life on Sunday, May 28th, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. The celebration will be held at the Grand Hall which is located on the second floor in the Campus Activity Centre at Thompson Rivers University (1055 University Drive, Kamloops). The family kindly requests you do not wear black.
We would like to sincerely thank all the staff in the emergency department and ICU at the RIH, in particular Dr. Parry; nurses Corby, Mark, Alesha, Kayla, Corinne, Siyuan, and Kate; and social workers Ken and Celine for their compassion and support.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Kamloops Brain Injury Association and/or registering to be an organ donor through BC Transplant.
“Until we meet again, guy”.
