With heavy hearts, the family of Andris “Kirk” Brammanis announces his sudden passing on June 14, 2020. Loving son of Guna Brammanis. Beloved brother of Juris (Antra) and sister Daina Eliason (Bill Campsall). Cherished uncle to Christopher, Kaiva, Ansis, Anneli, Livija, Liga, and Arija. Will be sadly missed by his cousins, uncle, aunts, six godchildren, and many friends. Andris is predeceased by his father Arnis Brammanis.
Born in Toronto, Kirk proudly graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Electrical Engineering. He was a dedicated employee at Canada Post Corporation for 33 years and had just retired this past November. Kirk was looking forward to traveling and spending more time with friends.
Andris was kind and thoughtful, always ready to help whoever needed an extra hand. He enjoyed spending time at Camp Sidrabene and at the cottage on Eels Lake, tackling new projects, and celebrating his Latvian roots. Family and friends were very important to him, and he never missed a birthday or holiday. We’ll always remember Andris’ sincerity and thoughtfulness, his great sense of humour, and his continuous support of others.
A private family service is being held this week, and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Please take a quiet moment to remember Andris in a way that is meaningful to you.
Contributions in memory of Kirk may be made to Camp Sidrabene (St. Andrews Evangelical Lutheran Latvian Church), the Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre, or another charity, whichever of these is closest to your heart.
