It is with broken hearts that we share the sudden passing of Byran, whom we loved so much. He was a kind, patient and giving person. He lived wisely and was fun loving, appreciating the good and weathering obstacles with strength and optimism. We will treasure the time we had with Byran and forever value his good-natured ways.
Byran was raised in Okotoks, Alberta with lots of happy times with family and friends. He settled in Lethbridge where he completed a degree in History at the University of Lethbridge, and later he became a Red Seal Electrician. Byran was a sports enthusiast with an encyclopedic knowledge and always had the answers for any sports trivia question. He loved the outdoors, hiking, camping, collecting rocks, fishing, golfing, and traveling.
Byran is survived by his loving wife Kayleigh Nielson and feline companion Beatrice. Cherished son of Joyce O’Neill and Jim Drinnan and big brother to Annie Drinnan. Remembering the fun times with Byran are Grandma Marilyn Drinnan, Aunts, Uncles and special cousins throughout Canada and the US. Byran had a devoted circle of friends who will be remembering special times they spent together with “Davey”.
A Remembrance gathering will be held at a date in the future.
