1986 – 2014
Bronson Darryl Wilson of Red Deer, Alberta passed away on May 31, 2014 at the age of 27 with his family by his side. As was the usual for Bronson, he faced his battle with cancer with strength and dignity; in fact, he approached it as a warrior and we could not be more humbled by his grace and determination. Bronson was born on October 13, 1986 in Edmonton, Alberta. In 1989 the family relocated to Hayter, Alberta. In 1995 we moved to Red Deer, Alberta where he resided at the time of his passing. Bronson attended the Pines Elementary, Central Middle School and graduated from Lindsey Thurber Composite High School. He studied Cultural Anthropology both at the Red Deer College and the University of Calgary. He also loved to travel and some of his happiest times were spent exploring new countries and learning about different cultures. As his friends and family know, Bronson was an incredibly talented musician, artist and athlete. He was an accomplished drummer and was well-known for his impressive abilities. His artwork exemplified his passion, intelligence and insight and those lucky enough to possess these pieces need only to look at them to be reminded of this. Bronson will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by his father Darryl Wilson, his mother Cori Olmstead and his step-father Bruce Olmstead. Also mourning his passing is his brother Sheldon Wilson (Erica); his sister Demi-Marie Wilson (Dylan); step sister Kalee Olmstead (Lorne); and step brother Keith Shingleton. Bronson loved and was much loved by his girlfriend Lyndsey Hall-Legallais. He also took great joy in spending time with his niece Aleiha, and nephews Kash and Ambrose. Some of you will have attended the fundraiser that was held for him on May 10, 2014 at the Vat. He was truly astounded at the love and support that was shown for him that evening. A Celebration of Life will be held in his memory at 2:00 pm on Friday, June 6, 2014 at the Black Knight Inn in the Grand Ballroom. Following this, all are welcome to join us at Wild Bill’s to continue this celebration. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Palliative Care Unit at the Red Deer Hospital. The family would like to give Special thanks to Dr. Thaine and all of the nursing staff on the unit for all of the care and compassion shown to Bronson during his time in their care.
