Brandon Orest Schur of Ponoka, AB was tragically taken from us July 9th, 2013.
He was born June 17th, 1993 in Stettler, AB to Gail and Murray Schur; proudly carrying the namesake of his grandfather. From the time he was born until his last breath Brandon was full of life, love and laughter with a huge personality you couldn’t help but love.
He loved all sports especially hockey and was passionate about quading, boating, skiing, camping, and travelling. He loved spending time with family and friends. Brandon attended Mecca Glen School until ninth grade at which time he went to Ponoka Composite High School graduating in 2011. He aspired to continue his education towards becoming a police officer.
Brandon lived every minute he had to its maximum potential and touched many lives with his contagious smile, genuine warmth and overwhelming generosity. He never passed by anyone without stopping to talk, to share a laugh, and make you feel better to have met and shared time with him.
Brandon had many, many friends who he loved dearly. He was loyal and protective of his friends, his family and especially his little sister Annie-Leigh who he loved fiercely.
Brandon will be deeply missed.
