Malcolm Bradley Schmith
March 20, 1989 – May 10, 2020
Malcolm Bradley Schmith passed away suddenly on Sunday, May 10, 2020 at the age of 31 years. He was born in Calgary, Alberta and resided there for the majority of his life. Bradley was exceptionally hard working with a deep love for his family and friends. Bradley loved the outdoors and spent as much time as he could out in nature. His hobbies included fishing, ATV/motor biking, shooting, travelling and Pokémon Go. Mountain biking was among his favourite activities.
Bradley is survived by his parents Malcolm Sutherland and Patricia Schmith, his beloved brother Patrick Schmith and his Papoo, Ronald Harrison. He is also survived by his Auntie Sandra Sutherland, his cousins Ava, Claire, Jennifer, Michael, Mark and Justin as well as his fat dog, Bruce. He is predeceased by his Uncles Andy and Jimmy and his grandmother Agnes “Cheese” Harrison. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins in Ontario.
Brad had a crazy love of Halloween and his house was the best decorated on his street complete with cans of pop and full size chocolate bars to hand out. He loved taking his fat dog, Bruce, for long walks to help him lose weight and then feeding him extra treats for going on the long walk. Brad loved big family dinners and without fail would show up with his Tupperware for extra leftovers. He enjoyed ice fishing and shooting targets with his Dad, Uncle Andy and his brother; visiting and spending time with his mom; chicken wings and a beer with buddies; camping weekends and taking his ATV’s out to ride with friends and creating many lasting memories. He had a strong influence on his cousins and loved spending time with them and always had some cash for their good reports cards. In his younger days, Brad would visit and take Grandma to bingo and pick up Papoo for breakfast. He worked very hard and was proud to buy his first house before the age of 30. Brad loved working in his garage on all of his toys and helping his neighbours.
Brad had so much goodness, so much capacity to bring happiness to others and such a bright future. The world is a lesser place without him. His kind and generous nature was just part of the man he was. Always there to lend a helping hand and share his time with family and friends. His love for life was as big as his laugh. He was generous to a fault and ever so humble and kind. Brad had a huge personality and a big love for life.
His time spent on this Earth will forever live in the hearts of all he met. Fond memories and remembrances will keep him near and in our hearts. In lieu of flowers or donations, we ask you to spend time with your Family.

I’m Bradley’s uncle and only met him a few times when my sister would bring the boys to Ontario for vacations. Bradley was such a beautiful Boy and well behaved. I’ve only talked to him few times since then. His mom Always told me how such a wonderful young man he turned out to be. Helpful, caring, and close to his family. My fondness memory was when they visited us and I would play my guitar and sing children songs to them, which Bradley enjoyed very much
Rest In Peace my Beautiful Nephew ...Forever in our hearts ...Always Loved

Unfortunately, I never knew Bradley well. Met him only a few times when he was a child when Patti came to Ontario for a visit with Patrick and Bradley. I only knew Bradley through the eyes on my Sister Patti. She told me of how Brad was good to her and took care of her. She enjoyed her time when they visited each other. She loved being with her boys. She talked about how Brad was an independent young man who owned and operated his own business, bought a home and how she was proud of him. He will be sadly missed by Patti, Patrick, Malcolm and the family. The shared memories of Bradley show what a wonderful, kind man he was. My condolences.

WAIT A Minute, Brad was so excited to own his own home, to have his own business, to be able to afford his many toys that keep him outside. He was stoked about the May long weekend so he could try out his new quad and camper.
HE HAD Plans for the future.
PLEASE MAKE this World to STOP and realize what they are missing without Brad in it!
HE WAS and is a much Loved man by anyone who knew him. The sense of loss is overwhelming and the sadness is unbearable.
BRAD YOU Will always be in our hearts and memories.

The pain of losing a child is like no other grief, it is like a hole inside of you that cannot be filled. Grief does not leave you and time does not heal, you learn to live with it only because there are people in your life who need you and they become more precious to you. They are the only ones that can truly console you.
Malcolm Bradley, will be met, near the shores, by all the people that we have lost in our families - he will not be alone. That can be the only comfort we can have right now.
Love you Malcolm Johnny - your boy looks so much like you

I met this young man a number of times. He sure liked family and came to visit often, the last time we visited Calgary. His laughter was great his smile bright and his love for his grandmother special. He wasn’t shy and hugged me. I truly don’t know what else to say. He was special, kind and sweet. And l regret having to write these words, because to me he is still walking around visiting his family and friend. Rest In Peace my grand nephew, there are a lot of people waiting to meet you in heaven.
