Bradley DeBoer

November 18, 1985- September 23, 2022


If you were lucky enough to know Brad, you would know that he had such a love for life, was always looking for a good time and could light up a room with just his smile.  You could expect  anything from a goofy face, a silly joke, a prank, a smart-ass comment, a text message to decode, random dance moves, silly voices and accents, to breaking out in song. You just never knew.

Brad was a devoted husband to his wife and high school sweetheart Ashley.  People would say they had a kind of love that everyone always wished for.  Brad and Ashley made many beautiful memories.  They could be found on the dance floor, walking the dogs on the farm, working together or just hanging out at home.  Together they loved going to concerts, parties at friend’s, seadooing and boating, and on trips and vacations.  They were rarely without each other coining the nickname Brashley from friends.  Brad and Ashley had a great connection and we will see Brad and their love everyday through Kamryn.

To say he loved his daughter Kamryn is an understatement.  She is his pride and joy, his miracle, his legacy.  He was so patient, loving and nurturing with her.  Together they blew bubbles, walked at their own pace hand in hand, played on the floor in their own silly way and read books together.  Brad has left a beautiful fingerprint on his daughter.  She will always be able to remember him by videos, photos and memories shared by family and friends.

Brad will be missed dearly by his Father Mario, his two Brothers Greg and Mac and his Sisters-in-law Tina and Ainslie.  The DeBoer family shared a love that anyone around them could see and they all meant the world to Brad.  With them, he shared his love for fishing, hunting, farming, tinkering in the shop, going on family vacations, joking and goofing around or just sitting at the kitchen table discussing anything and everything.

His Mother-in-law Jackie, Grannie, and his Brothers-in-law and Sisters-in-law Justin and Pauline and Amber and Jordan will forever miss his ability to always make them laugh and forget about their troubles and how he made every family occasion fun in his usual “Brad” way.

As far as Uncles go, Brad was one of the best.  He loved spending time with his nieces and nephews, Morgan, Warren, Jett and Rylee. Brad will be missed by so many others.  Aunts, Uncles and Cousins who shared in special times, close friends who were always there, his Holland family who loved him like their own, his Water Treatment Operator co-workers and his college buddies who shared in his shenanigans. Brad loved to go for rides on his motorcycle, go skiing, and work on his tractor or in the fields.  He loved his Toyota truck and trying new things.

He faced many battles in his life and despite it all, he remained the happiest, bravest, positive person who made the best out of every situation.  Brad passed peacefully at home surrounded by the immense love of his whole family.  He was predeceased by his loving Mother Lana and his beloved brother Jeff who would have greeted him with even more love.

Brad was an amazing person, Husband, Dad, Brother, Son, Uncle and friend.  He will be missed beyond words and never far from our thoughts.  He will always be the “sparkle in our hearts”.

As per his wishes, a private family service will take place at the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on Wednesday September 28, 2022.  Friends and family are invited to the Pardoville Cemetery at 2:15pm.  A party to celebrate Brad will take place at 3pm at the Red Barn Brewery in Blenheim, a place he loved.

Friends and family wishing to remember Brad are encouraged to donate to the Brain Tumour Foundation or to an education trust fund for Kamryn (cheques can be made payable to the Blenheim Community Funeral Home).

I was incredibly saddened to hear about this terrible loss. Sorry to the DeBoer family and my deepest condolences. In growing up with Brad he was a salt of the earth guy who always had a smile on his face no matter what. After going in different paths after high school I would always enjoy running into Brad around town as he was always interested in what was going on in my world despite the challenges he himself was facing. His laughter and positive spirit is something I will never forget. RIP buddy.

Mario & Family We are so sorry to hear about Brad’s passing. A life cut way too short. Your family certainly has had a tough go in the last two years. We did not know Brad but sounds like a nice man. I remember him when all the kids were little and lived across the street from us! Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this very difficult time!

"Hakuna Matata" just looked up the meaning. "There are no problems; don't worry about it" Brad "sang" this song to me and Kamryn on their front porch just days before he passed. Don't worry Brad. Your problems are finished. You struggled hard but we will meet again with the others. Enjoy your peace ❤️

Mario, Greg, Mac, and Families, So sad to hear of your loss. Strength and comfort to you during these difficult days. Praying for you. Chaplain Bill Terris - Transport For Christ
