January 22, 1938 – August 15, 2019
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Bryan Roberts on August 15, 2019 surrounded by his family. Born January 22, 1938 in Denbigh, North Wales, UK. Bryan moved his young family to Canada in 1966, spending time in Vancouver, Gold River and finally settling in Nanaimo in 1974, to work as a welder at Harmac, retiring in 1999. He had a love of all sports, but soccer and golf were the ones he enjoyed playing. In his retirement years you would find him on the golf course when he wasn’t spending time with his wife Glenda. Bryan was predeceased by his parents Jack and Jane, siblings Bryn, Muriel and Cynthia. He will be missed by his loving wife of 60 years Glenda, children Malcolm (Carrie), Dawn (Kim), Yvonne (Doug) and Cerys (Tom), grandchildren Megan, Grant, Sian (Nick), Liam, Cameron, Lauren, Johnathon, great-grandchildren Tobin and Gwynedd, siblings Clifford and Ingrid, and the rest of his extended family that are “back home”. He is now on the never ending golf trip around the world that he talked about in his final days, showing everyone how the game of golf should be played, and making every “hole in one”.
A celebration of life will be held Friday, August 23, 2019 @ 2 pm at Sands Funeral Chapel.
Flowers are graciously declined, donations can be made to the BC Children’s Hospital in Dads name.
