1957-2020 ~ Bryon Albert Polly passed away peacefully at home on June 17, 2020 at the age of 63. He was recently diagnosed with cancer.
Survived by Nicky Luck, his loving wife of 29 years and a large, loving extended family of sister and brother in-laws and nieces and nephews. He is also survived by long-time friends Rob and Kelly, Red and Jo, Francis and Mona, Jan and Bill and many old marine business and school friends and long time neighbours.
Bryon was born in Esquimalt, Victoria in 1957. His father was in the navy and Bryon grew up crawling thru ships that his father had served on. His family had a cabin at Kemp Lake in Sooke and summers were spent there building the cabin and sailing on 8 ft Sabot that he built with his father.
Bryon also built and flew many radio controlled planes, and his love and collection of old antique engines extended to friends made across the border. He was actively involved in the marine industry for 45 years.
In 1971 he started as a shipyard shop-boy in Esquimalt and moved to Campbell River with his wife in 1992 and continued thru his life to work and own his own businesses as a marine mechanic and for the last 15 years as a marine surveyor. He also owned and operated an ex-military rescue boat as a Charter in his younger days. He loved to talk to his customers about boats and was proud to be accepted to the North American Marine Surveyors as an associate member.
In Bryon’s words “I can honestly say I look forward to working everyday” were very true. Bryon loved his family and his life in Campbell River and he will be deeply missed.
His favourite saying, when asked how he was doing was a two thumbs up and “just jiggy”.
