Brenden James Gunn

April 24, 1989October 30, 2019

Please join us in the celebration of Brenden Gunn's life, well lived and well loved.

On Wednesday, October 30, 2019, Brenden James Gunn, son, brother, grandson, cousin, nephew, and good friend to many, passed away suddenly at the age of 30 years.

Brenden was a dedicated musician; earthmover, grooveslayer, and doombringer in several bands. Brenden had an appreciation for a wide variety of music in the rock, metal, techno and punk scenes. Music had such an impact on his life, that even though he considered it a hobby, we believe it was his second career. Brenden was a carpenter, and loved the work he was doing.

Brenden was a huge fan of comedy, and always made everyone around him laugh at his "tight AF" jokes. He loved quick wit, dry, farcical, situational, and satirical comedy. He would often quote his favourite comedians, or TV shows.

Brenden will be lovingly remembered by his mother Susan, his brother Matt, his father Brad, aunts, Shirley and Kelli, cousin Wes, grandmother Beryl, and his extended family of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Brenden will be fondly remembered by his many friends, and the music community he was in. The celebration will be held on Sunday, November 10th at 5pm at The Wise Hall, Vancouver. Event is 19+ with a cash bar.

There will be memorial tables set up, and anyone is welcome to bring items to share. Any item, pictures, trinkets, or written stories are welcome.

If you would like to speak, tell a story, or if you would like the MC to tell your story, please email it to the email address below. Or if you prefer it can go on display. Please let us know if you would like to contribute before Thursday, November 7th. Email Late submissions are welcome, if you would like to share with the family. We understand if you would like to think about your shared thoughts.

His memory will forever live on in our hearts and our speakers.

Tune low, play slow. Riff in peace.
