Brian Strowbridge, aged 55, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on August 6, 2023, at the Dr. L. A. Miller Centre in St. John’s. He was born August 9, 1967, in Happy Valley-Goose Bay to Teresa (nee Jackman) Strowbridge and Gordon Strowbridge. Brian wore many hats throughout his life, both within his career and his personal life and to try to list them all would be near impossible – there are simply not enough words to describe the positive impact and influence he has had throughout his life. Remaining to mourn are his daughter Brianna Strowbridge, siblings Charles, Jo-Ann, Gordon, and Thomas, numerous family members both blood and chosen (you all know who you are), and many, many friends. Brian lived authentically; he wasn’t afraid of being his unique self, was an optimist, always saw the bright side of things, and could manage a smile, a laugh, or a joke on even the hardest days. His resilience, fight, and strength were evident through to his last breath. He passed the same way he lived, with honour and dignity. The family would like to thank all who have provided support over these last few difficult months, especially from his workplaces Brenntag Canada and Irving Circle K. We are forever grateful for all they have offered and provided to honour Brian’s time with them. To celebrate Brian’s life, there will be a service held at a later date with both an in-person and virtual option of attendance for those near and far. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Ronald McDonald house in Brian’s memory. As a last note, Topsail Beach was always a special spot for him, so if you are looking for somewhere to go and reminisce on all the fond memories you have with him, please consider doing so while listening to the waves like he did.
The family will be accepting visitors at Carnell’s Funeral Home at 329 Freshwater Road, on March 2nd, 2024 from 2-5 p.m. for a celebration of Brian’s life.
