Bryan moved his wife and young family to Canada from England in 1965 settling in Deep Cove, North Vancouver. The family then moved to Kamloops in 1970 where he retired from a career with Corrections Canada in 1992. Bryan enjoyed a 30 year retirement with family gardening, woodworking & fishing. He worked hard on his garden and provided fresh fruits and vegetables to many friends and family. His favorite moments were spent with the love of his life Muriel in their gazebo enjoying their garden with a homemade beer. He was truly loved and will be missed.
Special Thanks to the wonderful doctors, nurses, and staff in the ICU at RIH and Kelowna General Hospital.
No service by request.
Kieron and I would like to send our heartfelt condolences Muriel and the Cleaver family. Bryan is my husband Kieron's Uncle, my husbands middle name is actually Cleaver also named by Bryan's predeceased sister Maureen. We just sadly found out last night that he had passed away so our apologies in the delay in sending our condolences. Kieron remembers his Uncle fondly and has followed in his footsteps albeit later in life, in the correctional service. Kieron has happy memories of his Uncle Bryan growing up in Deep Cove in the 1970's and it was lovely to see him again in 2020 when we stopped by for a visit. Best wishes to all of you from both of us in Penticton, BC. Claire & Kieron Warner
My condolences to the whole family. My memories of Bryan are of a kind, caring, supportive man who loved his family deeply. I know your loss is great and I hope you can find some comfort in memories of good times spent in his company.
