February 2, 1994 – August 9, 2018
It is with great shock and deepest sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Bradley Patrick Tipper. He will leave a big hole in our lives.
Bradley had an extensive family that loved and supported him. He is survived by his parents, Todd and Vickie Tipper, and his best friend and sister, Lauren (Jon) Tipper; his grandpa and granny, Harold and Liliana Tipper, and his memere, Connie MacKenzie; his uncles and aunts, Mike (Darlene) Tipper, Tami (TJ) Broughton, Neil (Michelle) MacKenzie, and Darcy (Bob) Assels; his cousins Allison and Amanda Tipper, Micheal Oakland, Loni (Pete) Nicholson, Corey (Josh) Milner, Dawn (Scott) Rhynold, Bryan (Danielle) MacKenzie, Taylor and Brooke Assels; as well as his newest buddies, his nine little cousins; his C-town family, Lou’s crew, the lightweights and his work family. He is predeceased by his Papa Mac, Gordon MacKenzie, and uncle Chris Oakland.
Bradley was an enchanting, charming young man, who left a profound impact on those he met and loved. He was gentle-hearted, generous and not afraid of saying he was afraid. He felt it all. He loved big.
Bradley was an avid sports enthusiast, participating with full heart in any sport he played, coached or mentored. He was extensively involved in volunteering with his community, from coaching school sports to being the first to support friends and those in need.
At the time of his death he was fulfilling a dream of working as a fourth-generation miner, having recently secured his Mine Rescue certificate. “I got goosebumps every time I entered the mighty Sullivan,” Bradley said. I felt like I was where I belonged.”
Born and raised in Kimberley, BC he will be missed by so many. A Celebration of Bradley will be held at McKim School Theatre, Saturday, August 18th at 2:00 pm. Memorial donations in memory of Brad can be made to The Battle of the Bats Slo-Pitch Tournament & Fundraiser or The Canadian Mental Health Association.
