July 10, 1956 - September 16, 2021
It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Warren Randell Bradbury on Sept. 16th, 2021. Over the past month Warren's health became fragile very quickly. He had just begun cancer treatment in Victoria when he succumbed to his illness.
Warren will be lovingly remembered by his partner, Karen Soper, daughter Melina and son Taylor, siblings Leanne (Mike), Judy (Gerry), Blair (Denise) and their families. He was predeceased by his parents Brad (2001) and Deanne (2020).
Warren was born on July 10, 1956 and lived the first 60 years of his life in the Lower Mainland, much of it in Coquitlam where he raised his family. In 2016, Warren made the move to Nanaimo to better share his life with Karen.
Warren loved life on "the Island" - being out salmon fishing with Karen, trail walks with Darcy, having a beer and laughs with friends, summers at Sarina and Phil Kochs' cabin, or endlessly puttering around in his yard.
Whether it was his many years in customer service at Sears and Home Depot, or simply doing another home project, he always liked to keep busy.
Over the years, doing many home improvements, he acquired a broad range of useful skills which he freely shared when help was needed. Warren approached the world without pretence, and very seldom complained about life's challenges. He was easy to know, and his unassuming manner made it easy to be oneself in his presence. He will be dearly missed.
Due to the pandemic, a celebration of life will be held in the spring of 2022, details of which will be provided closer to the event.
