BRANT KEITH HADDAD October 28, 1931 - May 13, 2018 Brant passed away at the age of 86, on Sunday, May 13, with his wife, Margaret, and his family at his side at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg. After a short, final struggle with declining health, Brant was concerned with others to his last breath, just as he was in life. Always in his heart were Ruth, mother of Laurie Lyn, David, Cindy Jane and John Haddad, his first family now residing in Alberta. After a time he became a part of the lives of Margaret, as partner and wife for over 30 years, and with her raised her sons, Jeff (Nicky) and Ryan (Karly) Murray. Although not in close proximity, but ever present in his thoughts, were his grandchildren, Steven (Jen) Dortch, Rachelle (Glenn) Haddad, and a new great-granddaughter Charlie, also in Alberta; Jack and Madeleine Murray in Winnipeg. He is also survived by one brother Sherrold Haddad and family. Brant was born and raised in Winnipeg, and from an early age learned the riches of friendship, caring for others and sharing whatever and whenever he could. He brought joy and laughter to anyone he met, with his positive outlook on life and what could be. Brant and Margaret retired to Victoria Beach, where they enjoyed years full of friendship and fun. He left his footprint in the sand. Cremation has taken place. A celebration in his honour is planned for Saturday, May 19. Service of Worship at St. Michael's Church, Victoria Beach (Pine Road and 8th Avenue) at 11:30 a.m. followed by a light lunch at the East Beaches Senior Scene, 3 Ateah Rd.

  • Coach Haddad along with Mr. Dave Anderson and another gentleman whose name I forget coached us during the 1960s. Some of us were recruited out of grade 9 (a no-no) and had an early start on learning to be men. Coach Haddad was always trying to have me learn to be a center - he said I would handle the ball on every play. However I stuck with being right guard and corner linebacker. I remember Coach Haddad with fondness - he was a good man. - Posted by: Brent Wylie (Gordon Bell football) on: May 22, 2018

  • So sorry to hear of Brant’s passing, Margaret, I know you have many great memories for you to cherish. - Posted by: Susanne Johannesson (Friend) on: May 18, 2018
