Arthur Laverne Bragg Obituary, Death – At the age of 88, Arthur Laverne (Vern) Bragg, who resided in Kamloops, British Columbia, passed away in a calm and serene manner on September 1, 2023. Vern was born in Brooks, Alberta on July 23, 1935. In the 1950s, he moved to Kamloops, British Columbia, and established a life there for himself and his family. Vern was a loving parent who was responsible for the upbringing of five children and nine grandkids.
Vern was recognized for his dependability and the attention he showed toward his career, and he spent the most of his time working. He spent a significant portion of his career in the transportation industry working as a driver for medium-haul trucks. He cherished the independence of the wide road and the sense of accomplishment that came with completing a delivery on schedule. It was well known that he had a nice approach with both his coworkers and his customers, in addition to his competence and expertise behind the wheel.
You could find him in his garage working on someone else’s car when he wasn’t playing crib with a friend or working on crib with a friend when he wasn’t working. He felt the most at ease around motor vehicles, and he took pleasure in performing maintenance on them in order to assist his family and friends. It was important to him to put in hard effort and enjoy the little things in life, and he will be remembered for the influence he had on the people in his life.
In 2016, Vern suffered a stroke, which negatively impacted his capacity to communicate and think critically. In January of 2022, he moved into the Ponderosa Lodge located in Kamloops, British Columbia, and that is where he spent the rest of his life. On September 1, 2023, he passed away while he was sleeping in a peaceful passing. Along with his nine devoted grandchildren, he was preceded in death by his children, Doug Bragg (who was married to Wendy), Dale Bragg (who was married to Jackie), Kathy Julian, Karen Bragg (who was married to Gord), and Daniel Bragg (who was married to Dawn). During this difficult time, the family would be grateful for your thoughts and prayers. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made in the honoree’s name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
