It is with great sadness that we announce the tragic passing of our brother Christopher Ian Bandy, taken far too soon from his family on the night of June 28th, 2019 at the age of 34.
Chris is predeceased by both his parents Ron Bandy and Tracy Tinline. Left to grieve this loss are his brother Patrick Bandy (Kate), sister Ashley Bandy (Thomas) and his nephews Jack, Oliver & Finley. Also left behind are his grandparents Jackie & Tom Wolfe, Aunts, Uncles, cousins and many friends who Chris cared for tremendously.
Chris was born on Mar 17th, 1985 at Royal Inland Hospital. Raised in Kamloops BC, he graduated from Norkam secondary in 2003. Through his high school years he enjoyed playing all sports, especially football and rugby in which he excelled at. In the years to follow he was an avid fan of multiple sports from NHL, NFL to MMA.
Chris would later find a career with CN rail where he was a supervisor for many years, travelling all over western Canada. He took his job seriously and was rarely off the clock. He was a hard working and loyal man who was always trying to move forward.
Chris enjoyed spending time with family and friends whenever he could. Whether it was getting together for a game of cards, watching the fights or shooting a round of golf, he was always interested in whatever was happening. He was a generous man who wouldn’t hesitate to pick up the tab or help someone out however it may have been needed. Those that knew him know of what a stand up guy he was. He will be missed tremendously.
His memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm on Friday, July 12th at the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Dr., with a get together afterwards. All family and friends are invited to come pay their respects with us at the Rock N Firkin Pub & Grill @ 3:00 PM, and remember the man he was.
