March 13, 1989 – April 11, 2021
It is with great sadness and sorrow that the family of William Mark Brandow (Billy) announce his passing April 11, 2021. Billy was born in Abbotsford, British Columbia on March 13, 1989.
Billy had one of the biggest hearts in the world. He was compassionate, kind, empathetic, and a gentle spirit with an amazing sense of humour. Billy was forever smiling, joking, and spreading energy of positivity everywhere to everyone.
He had a gift of making others laugh, feel comfortable, relaxed and at ease. His charismatic smile lit up the room. Everyone was instantaneously drawn to him. He welcomed everyone with open arms and was always there, lending hand to all those in need.
Billy was a kid at heart with everyone, no matter what their age. He was very close to many of his cousins and had numerous friends who loved him dearly and miss him so much now. He was “the apple of his parent’s eyes”, Mark and Penny, who love, adore, cherish and miss Billy every second.
Billy loved going for walks in the parks and beaches in Vancouver. He was especially close to his tortoise, Franklin. He will always be remembered by those who crossed his path as a soft-hearted, gentle, kind soul, always smiling and spreading that joy to everyone around him.
Billy is survived by his parents,Mark and Penny Brandow and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Billy was predeceased by his grandparents, two aunts and an uncle. We know he as joined them in heaven, making them all smile and laugh.
Thank you Billy for being a beautiful gift in our lives and in the lives of many. We cherish every moment spent with you. Forever in our hearts.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date to be announced.
Until We Meet Again
Those special memories of you will always bring a smile.
If only I could have you back for just a little while.
Then we could sit and talk again, just like we used to do.
You always meant so very much and always will too.
The fact that you’re no longer here will always cause me pain,
But you’re forever in my heart until we meet again.
