Brendan Curtis Ryle Genaille
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden and tragic loss of Brendan Curtis Ryle Genaille on August 3, 2023.
He is survived by an ex-girlfriend and love of his life Felica Houle, biological mother Marcella Genaille (Doug), biological father Joey Sanderson, father (uncle) John Thompson, brothers Joshua Genaille, sisters Hartley Perron, Jerrie Genaille, Rolanda (Corey Dumas), Kim (Edward Stevenson), and Billie (Chad), aunties Sharon Genaille (Gerald), Cynthia Genaille, uncles Abraham Genaille and Karl Genaille, nieces Zoey and Journee, DJ, sky nephews Brent Genaille (Aimee), Nathan Genaille (Haley), and Jacob Genaille (Emily), and numerous great aunts, great uncles, cousins, and friends.
Brendan was predeceased by: grandmother Bertha Genaille and grandfather Clemmy Chartrand; mother Rose Genaille (John Thompson); auntie Francis McKenzie; uncle Roland McKenzie; and nephew (cousin) Riley Genaille.
Brendan was a very loving, happy, and hard-working person, brother, uncle, and son. He loved all his nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends. His family was very important to him. He was known for his stunning humour, his jokes, and his breathtaking smile. Brendan had a genuine laugh that made the atmosphere so light; he was free-spirited, loving, generous, and had a compassionate spirit. He did his very best to help those who were going through difficult times. Anyone who encountered him felt like family to him. Brendan was raised by his auntie Rose and his sister Jerrie, who grew up with him and discovered their strengths and capabilities together. He also loved his brother Joshua very deeply and his sister Jerrie. Jerrie helped raise both her brothers, Brendan and Joshua.
He worked at Wonder shows at times. He liked to help his sister Jerrie a lot, helping with the lawn cleaning up and watching the family pet Chi Chi whom Brendan also loved very much. Brendan was the best person to have around, and you can always depend on him. He was always there for you, no matter what. Brendan loved people, and he’d never let you down.
Pallbearers: Karl Genaille, Brent Genaille, Joshua Genaille, Nathan Genaille, Jacob Genaille, brother-in-law Corey Dumas & sister and niece Hartley Perron, and Journee Genaille
