With profound sadness, we announce the sudden passing of Bradly Steven Patenaude, age 36 of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Brad is survived by his father Richard, his mother Barb (Fred), his sister Jenna (Mike), his beloved babies (dogs) Dexter and Bella and numerous family and friends.
Growing up many memories were shared at Pepere's cabin, including quadding, dirt biking, catching frogs, picking peas and much more. Brad was always very determined and had many aspirations. One being completing his journeyman electrician at the young age of 23. If you ever needed a music or movie suggestion, Brad was your go to guy.
Brad had a passion for boating and fishing. So much so, that no one had the stamina to fish for 20 hours like he did. Brad was always eager to help family and friends with
projects, as he was a jack of all trades. Brad loved to cook. A family favourite was his deep-fried turkey on Thanksgiving.
It would warm Brad's heart when he could make someone smile and laugh…even if it was at his own expense. Brad was a quick
witted, fun loving guy. We will always
remember Brad's cheeky smirk.

We love you Brad

Due to COVID restrictions, a small private funeral to honour his life will take place.

  • I wanted to extend my condolences to his family, very sad to hear about Brads passing. Brad and I finished electrical school together. We did our last 2 levels and wrote our final exams and had become good friends during that time. He picked me up everyday to go to school during our last level as I could not drive due to a injury at the time. We played a lot of foosball at Red River college and Brad found a way to bypass the coin slot so we could have unlimited play. We had kept in touch for many years after that. - Posted by: Pierre (Friend) on: Jun 22, 2021
