ANCELET, Bryan Jules

October 25, 1948 – February 25, 2020

Bryan Jules Ancelet of Calgary passed away peacefully on February 25, 2020 at the age of 71 years.

Bryan will be lovingly remembered and missed by his wife Terri, daughter Jolene (Ryan) grandchildren Maddy and Thomas, stepchildren and step grandchildren Mike (Cooper and Chloe), Lynn (Jude), and his sister Noreen Belitz (Rae).  He will also be dearly missed by many cousins, nieces and nephews, and many close friends. Bryan was predeceased by his daughter Jan, mother Elsie, father Albert, and brothers Lyle and Trevor.

After 32 years of dedicated service, Bryan retired as a Captain of the Calgary Fire Department in 2003.  Along with numerous hobbies, Bryan was an avid hunter, fisherman, hockey player and golfer. Bryan was always there to lend a hand and give his support to anyone in need.

The family would like to thank everyone who enriched our dear husband, father and grandfather’s life.

    We are so sorry to see that Bryan passed Terri. He really was one of a kind! We will always remember his crazy Halloween costumes! He always made us laugh. But we are also relieved that his suffering has ended. We truly believe that he is in a better place now.

    Terri, I want to give you and your family my deepest condolences. I know I didn’t know you two for long, but in the short time we were friends you should know I thought the world of both of you. Its a shame we didn’t meet years ago for I am sure there would have been many more fun times. I sure enjoyed Bryans sence of humor, and his hunting story’s. And thank you for all the Lee child books.

    I am so sorry to hear of Bryan passing and send my deepest condolences. He suffered from a terrible disease that took him far too young.

    Bryan was a great guy possessing the qualities many of us work at to achieve. He was an honest, compassionate man with a great sense of humour. Generous with his time, helping others with various projects. A great guy. We were all lucky to have known him.
