September 26, 1942 – July 25, 2019
Ross went home to be with Jesus after an 18 year battle with Prostate cancer. He passed away peacefully in the North Okanagan Hospice at the age of 76 years. Ross will be lovingly missed by his wife of 44 years Colleen, daughter Tara (Jason) Stanley, son Russell, grandsons Tyler and Matthew, daughter-in-law Erin Bryant, brothers Alan and Jerry Bryant and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Sydney and Elma Bryant, sister Norma & brothers, Vern, Ken, Elwood, Harold & Walter.
Ross and Colleen moved to Armstrong in April 1974 where he started a 43 year career as Journeyman Sheetmetal Mechanic. His first job was working at Ron Brown Limited until 1999 when his dream came true to own and operate his own company. In the spring of 1999 Ross and his business partner, Tom MacGillis, started their own mechanical contracting company, Bry-Mac Mechanical Ltd. where he continued enjoying his work until he retired in 2017. Ross cherished the many good relationships and memories he made during his career.
Ross was a loving husband dedicated father and grandpa. He enjoyed every chance he had to meet up with friends for a game of cards or BS over coffee, breakfast, lunch or ice cream.
He will be remembered for his amazing garden, his witty jokes and his big heart. He was genuine person with an easy going way about him, which touched a lot of people’s lives during his time here on earth.
Ross’s family would like to thank the caring and dedicated staff and volunteers at the North Okanagan Hospice House who gave Ross the best care for the last 5 weeks of his life. He appreciated each and every one of you! In lieu of flowers, Ross asks that donations be made to either the North Okanagan Hospice House or Shuswap Volunteer Search & Rescue Society.
A celebration of life will take place on Saturday, August 10th @ 11am at the Armstrong Bible Chapel.
