Henry Braak

June 17, 1962 - September 2, 2022


Predeceased by Henry Sr., who was the rock that his home was built on. Survived by his mother, Wilhelmina, the most caring, loving woman any man would hope for. Brother, Jacob (Jack), whose support was unwavering. Brother, Robert, his wife Deidre, and their children, Holly and Spencer, who remain the apple of my eye. There are too many relatives to name. I say thank you to them. I made the choice when to leave this world. The cancer treatment was horrible, and the cancer had spread. To my thirty years within the school, I ask the entire staff to forgive me whenever I put things the wrong way. To the entire student body, I thank you for all you taught me. Take care and God bless.

We are extremely sad to say good-bye on September 2, 2022, to our son and brother. Henry Braak. He passed away peacefully at home, on Salt Spring Island, with the help of Doctor Slakov.

Henry loved golf and attempted it almost every day. He fought to maintain his independence never wanting to feel like he was a burden to anybody. He somehow played his last round of golf on Thursday, September 1st. Henry was born in Powell River on June 17, 1962 (Father’s day). He had a love of sports and in particularly enjoyed playing soccer and golf. His schooling took him to Malaspina College in Nanaimo, the University of Victoria, and the University of the North in Prince George.

There are so many people that went out of their way to visit, share kind words, and do the things that made the last year better. Thanks for caring so much.

Upon request, there will be no memorial service or celebration of life.
