BRAAK, Henry

Henry Braak
June 17, 1962 – Sept. 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. Bother Robert, his wife Deidre, 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 away 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 goodbye on September 2, 2022 to our son and brother, Henry Braak. He passed away peacefully at his 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 particularly enjoyed playing soccer and golf. His schooling took him to Malaspina College in Naniamo, the University of Victoria and the University of 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.
