FANDRICH

1945 – 2019
Bryan Edward Fandrich passed away at River Ridge Senior Center in Medicine Hat on March 7, 2019, at the age of 73 years. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Bonny in 2013, and by his parents Ed and Iris Fandrich. He is survived by three daughters: Leslie Fandrich (Chris Janata) of Warwick, New York, Jill (Mark) Braithwaite of Trail, British Columbia, Tracy (Allen) Woloshyniuk of Coalhurst, Alberta; and six grandchildren: Milo and Quinn Janata, Annaka and Bram Braithwaite, William and Nicole Woloshyniuk. Bryan is also survived by four siblings: Bruce Fandrich, Denyse (Bob) Yeast, Beverly (Christoph) Eversmann and Grant (Linda) Fandrich; and numerous in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends.
Bryan was born May 30, 1945 in Medicine Hat, Alberta. He started working at his dad’s business, Fandrich Refrigeration, as a teenager and spent summers farming on his family’s farm at Hilda. He met Bonny Bouchard, the love of his life, in 1968 and they had a wonderful life together. At age 23, he bought a vacant lot on the Flats and designed and built his own house. He loved to travel with his family in the van, camping all over western Canada and the US. He dreamt about flying fighter jets but had to settle for watching the movie Top Gun at least fifty times.
When his dad slowed down, focusing on the domestic calls, Bryan started his own successful refrigeration and air conditioning business, Commercial Refrigeration. He was an active member of the Optimist Club in the 80s and 90s, working on their newsletter and special events. Bryan loved to tinker, could fix anything and always had a project on the go, including a number of DIY home renos. He owned an abundance of tools and flashlights – his packed garage was a sight to behold. His avid interest in computers came alive when he retired in 2000 – he even built his own computer. For many years he sent out weekly “webbies” to everyone he knew, links to interesting things he found on the internet, and he created and shared PowerPoint slide shows on his favourite subjects, which were many and varied! His creativity also took the form of looking for good deals at second-hand stores for project materials. He made beautiful knives by hand, sewed his own moccasins and patched together many decorative lamps into what could, loosely, be described as art. Bryan laughed easily, loved a good joke, was a great storyteller and was always the life of the party. He was a hard worker and a good husband, son, father, brother and friend. He will be deeply missed. Bryan’s family would like to thank the nurses and staff at The Good Samaritan Society South Ridge Village and River Ridge Seniors Village and give special heartfelt thanks to Kreste Sadler for the support and devoted care she provided during the last few years.
The funeral service will be held in the PATTISON CHAPEL on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. with Life Celebrant, David Townsend.
