Memorial dedicated to Kirk D. Bryson - March 2nd, 1957 - July 22nd, 2019 - Former Resident

After a long and courageous battle from complications from Diabetes, we are saddened to say that Kirk passed away peacefully on Monday, July 22, 2019, with his fiancée, Francine Drapeau by his side. 
Kirk was born in Hamilton, ON, yet lived most of his adult life in Sarnia. He leaves behind a very close and dear friend Mary Cooper and buddy Jimmy and several brothers and a sister and will be missed by all. Kirk’s career was vast. 
He worked in the Electrical Wholesale business in Sarnia, mostly in managerial type positions. Later in his career he was a Purchasing Agent on large projects for firms such as Mellon Inc., and Jacobs Canada. Years ago, Kirk had a very close buddy that got him into sailboat racing, and he loved it with a passion. He did several Port Huron to Mackinac races and cruised the North Channel with that same close friend, Brian Mellon. While visiting in the hospital over the last few months we found Kirk always going back to those memories, always with a big smile on his face. Kirk is now at peace and will be missed by family and friends. 
An open house to celebrate Kirk’s life will be held at SMITH FAMILY CENTRE, 1576 London Line, Sarnia, on Saturday, September 21, 2019, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sympathy may be expressed through donations to Bluewater Health Foundation or Sarnia Yacht Club Youth Sail Training (1220 Fort St., Point Edward, ON, N7V 1M4) (cheques only at the funeral home please).
