Roderick Andrew Bryan

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Roderick Andrew Bryan, 69, of Springhill, NS, at the Moncton Hospital on Sunday, October 4, 2020. Born in Springhill, Roddy was a son of the Late Douglas and Louise (Wheaton) Bryan.

Roddy enjoyed walking his best friend, Snoopy. He would often spend time downtown getting caught up on the local news. He enjoyed trips to Florida, was an avid sport card collector and die-hard fan of the Montreal Canadiens. Roddy was a proud and devoted member of The AA O'Rouke Group and the AA Junction Group, and with their support accomplished 39 years of sobriety.

He will be sadly missed by his wife of 44 years, the former Karen Calder; his children, Andrew, of Halifax, and Carrie (Earl Johnston) Bryan, of St. John's, NL; his sister, Grace (Brian) MacLeod, of Springhill and his brothers, Claude (Dorene) Bryan and Richard Bryan, all of Springhill; in addition he will be dearly missed by the grand-pups, whom he greatly enjoyed, Frankie and Wizard. He will also be missed by his brothers-in-law, Doug (Marlene) Calder, and Bill (Anne) Calder; his sisters-in-law, Doll (Jack) MacDonald, Charlene (Ken) MacCallum, and Sandra (David) Siddall, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, Roddy was predeceased by a brother, Wayne, a sister, Diane, and a brother-in-law, Murray.
