It is with profound sadness that the family of Brett (B.J.) Hope announce his sudden passing on September 23rd, 2021. Brett leaves to cherish his memory his grandmother, Phyllis Schneider; father, Bill Hope; his stepchildren, Tiahna and Josh Blaquiere; his sister, Nichole (Mark) Neubauer and their children Logan and Evie; sister, Bobbi (Rodney) Read and their children Tyson and Beau. He was predeceased by his mother, Linda (Sherwood) Hope.
Brett and Joanne Burns made a life together with their children Tiahna and Josh, in Redcliff, Alberta. As a family, they enjoyed camping, traveling to the mountains and spending time at the cabin at Elkwater. Brett was always up for backyard beers, with the promise of a good meal and entertaining stories that would be filled with his infectious giggle. Always a cheerleader, Brett loved attending sporting events featuring Tiahna, Josh, Logan and Evie. While Brett enjoyed watching hockey and football, he was an avid NASCAR fan and you could find him in front of the TV any given Sunday. Brett’s firm handshake was his trademark and he was great at building friendships with anyone who was lucky enough to cross his path.
Early in his career, Brett traveled extensively throughout the prairies working in the oil and gas industry. From there, he put in a good shift as a hired-hand at the Triangle Ranch in the Cypress Hills. This is where he developed a strong love for the land and formed a spiritual tie to this ranch that was never broken. He then transitioned to Landmark Feeds as a feed mill operator and thanks to his strong work ethic and charismatic personality, he was later promoted to the Regional Sales Coordinator with Trouw Nutrition.
Brett’s family plans to hold a private celebration of his life at a date in the future. Those who wish to remember Brett with a donation, may do so to “halo” c/o Southern Alberta Medic Air Society. (Please make cheques payable to Southern Alberta Medic Air Society).
