October 6, 1960 – October 12, 2016
Bryan Robert Kaardal, 56, of Campbell River B.C., passed away peacefully in his sleep on the morning of October 12th. He is survived by his four children and their mother; Leslie Kaardal, his son Joshua and his wife Alyssa and grandson Benson, son Jonathan, and his wife Chantelle and grandson Jackson, son Jeremy, and his girlfriend Jessa, and daughter Jennifer, and her husband Lael; his parents Morris and Anna Kaardal; his siblings Mike, Duane, and Diane.
Bryan was born in Prince Rupert B.C., on Oct. 6th, 1960. He was a top male athlete that held the course record at the Prince Rupert golf course. 65, for 18 holes. He got a hole in one at the B.C. Amateurs in 1987. He was also an avid fisher and hunter, and loved camping and the outdoors.
In 1987 he moved to Campbell River with his family and worked as an instrumentation technician. He built the family home here and with open doors always accepted people into his home. He took in family, friends, and homeless to give them a place to stay and feel loved. It was his heart for helping and loving people that made his home the place everyone always wanted to be and hang out. His pride was always in his family, especially his two grandchildren, whom he loved more than the world.
Bryan was diagnosed with M.S. that went back to 1986. His struggle showed his strength and faith to all those around him. He was not mad at God or the world, but instead he put others first and was always concerned for those around him and how they were doing. His example of life is an inspiration to his entire family and those that knew him. He will always be missed by his family, but his legacy will live on. Always in our hearts, we Love you forever DAD. RIP.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Vineyard Church, on Saturday Oct. 29th, 2016 at 2pm, with a gathering at his house to follow.
