Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • I knew Brent for many years growing up through school, he was a ambitious person, he had a great sense of humour and was a great person to talk to. Although it was a long time since we have talked, when life and career took us in different directions, when we were able to catch up he always sat down to update me on the latest and greatest!! My deepest condolences goes out to the Artimowich family, May you have courage and strength and healing always, may memories live in your hearts always. Brent you were a great friend, that will always be remembered!! - Posted by: Kris Thiede (School friend) on: Apr 13, 2023

  • When I learned about Brent’s passing last week, even though I had not seen him in many years the news was very tough to hear. Although life has taken many of us ‘old’ friends in different directions, our memories allow us to take a step back and reflect on all of the great times we had growing up together. This past week, I along with Chad (Kaatz), and my brother Dave have been reminiscing about all of the fun times we had with Brent. This list is long but one memory that immediately came to our minds was fishing. Much of our summers growing up were spent fishing the banks of the Red River, usually at Highland Park. At the time, to us these were just ‘normal’ days. Having fun and catching fish…but looking back now we gained so much more from these experiences. Independence, friendship, trust, dependability, loyalty, and empathy along with common sense, problem solving, and punctuality. We would jump on our bikes first thing in the morning, be gone all day and return home by nightfall unscathed (mostly). I could go on and on here, but those days were instrumental in the people we became. In recent years when chatting about Brent, Dave and I would often say how great it was that he became a conservation officer. It was fitting for sure and awesome that he was able to live out that dream. Like us, Brent was most comfortable in the great outdoors which is likely why all of us were so easily drawn together. To Gord, Sandy, and Mark – I am so sorry that Brent was taken much too soon. You are all in my thoughts and I wish you all better days ahead. I, along with so many others will keep Brent’s memory alive recounting our memories alongside Brent to one another. Take Care! - Posted by: Mike Ruthig (Childhood Friend) on: Feb 23, 2023

  • It is with sorrow that we acknowledge the passing of Brent. Brent was a close friend to my son Bob, their friendship started at a young age playing hockey at the Gateway Community Center that continued to this day. They enjoyed fishing and hunting trips together and always had exciting accounts of their numerous trips. I also recall that they spent time with Brent’s brother at Lake Louise where he was working at a ski resort, I’m sure there were many stories to be told from that experience. I am so glad that I had a short visit with Brent and his mother this summer as I had not seen him for the past few years, it was a nice time together. My wife Myrt and I would like to extend our condolences to Brent's father Gord, mother Sandy and brother Mark, it is especially hard to deal with when someone has gone before their time.

  • So much life and fun .. such a terrible loss. - Posted by: Sandy Spencer-Sutton (Family friend) on: Feb 18, 2023

  • My deepest condolences to Brent's family. I knew Brent for all his years spent at Emerson Elementary School. I was the teacher-librarian. I remember vividly a lively, animated, busy boy. He liked coming to Literature class and to do research projects. He was so excited to be moving on to Junior High. The year he started Grade 7 he returned the first week of school to visit me in the library after class. I asked him how he was finding his new school and he answered : "I think I need a hug!". That was his good-bye to his elementary years. I am sorry his life was short but I hope those years were filled with adventure, challenge, and fun. With sympathy.
