In memory of

Bryan Robert Rodie

September 22, 1941 -  March 9, 2023

Bryan Robert Rodie passed away peacefully March 9, 2023. He will be deeply missed.
Bryan was born on September 22, 1941 to Elsie and James Rodie in Windsor, Ontario. Bryan graduated as an electrical engineer in 1965.
Bryan secured his first professional position at Ontario Hydro working in downtown Toronto where he met Nancy Cooper and they were married August 19, 1967. Bryan was a devoted father to Dawn (Peter), Allan (Kim) and Trevor (Katie) and loving Papa to his grandchildren, Madeline, Claire, Corinna and Ian.
After 28 years rising through the ranks at Ontario Hydro, Bryan retired as Manager of Systems Operations. Undaunted by intensive coursework and steep learning curves, Bryan launched a second professional career as a successful certified financial planner with the Investors Group, providing mentorship to many.
Never idle, Bryan participated in many hobbies and sports, including coaching his children's hockey and soccer teams. While some of his favourite activities included curling, sailing and playing lacrosse in his younger days, his interests were broad. He spent many years renovating the family cottage for everyone to enjoy during decades of making happy memories.
Bryan was dedicated and loyal to his family and those he came to know throughout his life. His shining example of high moral character and integrity live on in his children and grandchildren.
It was clear his role as a loving husband and father was important to him. A strong, silent type who preferred to lead by example, he was a pillar of strength for his family, friends and colleagues.
He will be missed by many as we stand on the foundation he has left behind.
Family and Friends will be received at THE SIMPLE ALTERNATIVE FUNERAL CENTRE- MISSISSAUGA 1535 South Gateway Road (at Dixie Road, two lights south of Eglinton) 905-602-1580 on Saturday March 25, 2023 at 1p.m. for a Memorial gathering. A Celebration of Life will follow at 2 p.m.
As expressions of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, donations to Parkinson Canada would be appreciated by the family.

I will remember Bryan as being quiet, yet very intelligent. He loved his family deeply as well as his dog Molly. He enjoyed the outdoors and was athletic by nature. The engineer in him was always showing through in various ways and he had multiple hobbies and interests.
It was a great pleasure to be part of Bryan's life journey as his physiotherapist. I really enjoyed listening to Trevor, Allan and Dawn share stories of how their dad impacted them and the lives of those around him. What a great role model he was. He did not have an easy journey and both he and Nancy (and the family) are commendable for their fortitude to press through difficult times. I want to express my condolences on the entire family's loss . Grieve, cry and hold onto the good memories and positives he modelled.
