Brock MAIDEN

MAIDEN, Brock

September 14, 1957 – March 3, 2011

It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Brock Stewart Maiden on March 3. 2011 at age 53. Brock was a devoted father to Devon (wife Pam), Grandfather to Jayden, a beloved son to Fred and Muriel Maiden (pre-deceased 1965) and step-son to Thelma Maiden. Brock will be sadly missed by his brothers Trevor (Chris) and Doug (Donna) and his sisters Janet (Duane), Linda (James), Karen (Mike) and Janice, and by his much adored dog Molley.

An avid outdoorsman and photographer, Brock will always be remembered for his photographic talent and his amazing ability to capture nature through a camera lens. As a professional carpenter, he excelled at combining function and beauty to the homes he built in Kelowna over the past 25 years.

But, it isn’t his professional or athletic skills that made Brock stand out. It was the way he loved each and every friend and family member, from the oldest to the newest and with a family of nine, there was always a new member joining the crew. He loved each and every niece and nephew in his own unique way – they are: Lee, Giselle, Michelle, Jaime, Sean (Annie), Sara (Adam), Danielle, Alana, Nathan (Stephanie), Natalie (Shane), Marcus (Linda), Jaylene (Kyle) and Cameron.

When Brock explored the mountains and rivers of British Columbia, he had a desire to always keep going; to see what was around the next corner; to reach the highest peak way after the rest of us were ready to call it quits. He was always up in front, ahead of everyone else and again, he is leading the way – the first to find whatever lays ahead for us all.

There will be a reception at Springfield Funeral Home Family Centre, 2020 Springfield Road in Kelowna, on Saturday, March 12th at 4:00 P.M. to celebrate Brock’s life. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Central Okanagan Hospice House, 2235 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 2Z6 or to the scholarship program at Foundation Todos Juntos (www.todos-juntos.org).
