A long-serving member of the Aldergrove Legion and community passed away Friday.

Bob Brady passed away in a cabin while on a hunting trip with his family members near Princeton. Paramedics and police responded but were unable to revive him.

Bob had undergone heart surgery a year and a half ago after suffering a stroke. He had been slowly regaining his strength since but he suffered another stroke, this time fatal, while on the trip.

Aside from Legion activities Bob has kept very busy over the years. He served as Alderman in the District of Matsqui for a number of years and was President of the Aldergrove Lions where he spearheaded the building of the Aldergrove Intermediate Care Hospital and Lions Grove Seniors Housing at Jackman Manor.

He was Master of the Abbotsford Masonic Lodge in 1981 and 1982 and is an active Shriner. As a Shriner he was Captain of the Fraser Valley Scooter Corps. This group performs at 15 to 20 parades a year in B.C. and Washington.

He is also a member of the Aldergrove Elks and Abbotsford Eagles.
