It is with heavy hearts that we, the family of Kelly Scott McBride, announce his sudden passing at Northern Lights Regional Health Centre in Fort McMurray on Friday, August 5, 2022, at the age of 52.
Kelly is survived by his loving spouse Sara Hollings, mother Carol McBride, sister Robbin Spencer, nephews Logan Spencer, Seamus McBride and Mahlon McBride, as well as his feline companions Gibbs, Ziva, Yeti, Chewbacca, Oreo, and many close friends. He was predeceased by his father Terry McBride and brother Sean McBride.
Kelly was born and raised in Burlington, Ontario. He grew up active in the Sea Cadet Corp which he carried on with into adulthood. When his parents made the move to Nanaimo BC, Kelly followed not long after as family was important to him. There he quickly made lifelong friends and met his spouse Sara. When a friend suggested he move to Fort McMurray, he took a leap of faith and made the journey. He enjoyed his time here making friends, working hard, riding his Harley & cheering for the Leafs.
Services in Fort McMurray and Nanaimo will be announced at a later date. Thank you to the paramedics and first responders for their quick response.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation in Kelly's memory.
