We Remember

KIRBY, Brody

With heavy hearts, we announce the unexpected passing of Brody Kirby on July 19, 2023, at the age of 20.

Brody is survived by his mother Danielle and stepfather Donny Lyons; father Dylan Newcomb; grandparents Chesley and Linda Rideout; grandfather Keith Newcomb; and by his five siblings; sisters Sophie, Indy, Charlotte, Cassidy, and his only brother James. He is also survived by his niece Ava and his nephews Daxtyn and Hudson. Brody’s best friends Chris Songer, Drake Michaelis, Taylor Halyk, Wyatt Peter, and Sabre, Brody’s dog, will go on to cherish their friendships forever.

He was born and raised in Kelowna, British Columbia on July 29, 2002, where he made his home and created long-lasting relationships. Brody was loved by many and was accepted as a part of the family by the Songer and Halyk/Dawson families. They helped in raising him, where he spent countless hours with them all; so much so that they were considered Brody’s second and third family. Brody, Chris, and Drake were inseparable and the greatest of friends. He also had a special connection with his Nan and Pop Rideout that could not be matched. The bonds that Brody created with his friends and family will continue on in his memory forever and will not be forgotten.

Brody had a passion for the outdoors. He loved camping, biking, and spending time with his friends. He also enjoyed playing video games when he wasn’t spending his time outdoors. Brody made a career in construction and was a dedicated worker. He was a gentle and kind soul with a big heart and an infectious laugh. He will be missed deeply by all and is now at peace in the arms of Jesus, where he can spread his love and kindness further.
