George Bradley Townend is predeceased by his father, George Townend; sister Wendy Townend; brother Brent Townend. He is survived by his mother, Roslun Yurko; step-father John Yurko; sister Tammy Landry; brother Derek Townend; brother Perry Townend; daughter Chelsea Townend, and many nieces and nephews.
George, who we call Brad, was born in Bisset, Manitoba. He was a loving father and devoted son and brother: a family man. He took his last breath in Edmonton, Alberta. Brad was an adventurer, traveler, great cook, and just full of love for people and for life. He was independent, hard-working, and had a great sense of humor. He loved golf and fishing; he was often on the golf course with his buddies or on the lake with his father.
They say the good die young, and Brad was the good. He left us too soon.
“For all of eternity I shall wait until I get to see your face, in the sky is where we’ll meet, above the stars is where we’ll greet.”
