Obituary

Brent Andrew Holmes, 55, of Port Perry, Ontario passed away on Tuesday, October 12 after a four-month battle with Cancer. Brent was born on May 27, 1966 to Florence (Mike) and John Holmes in Toronto. After graduating from Malvern Collegiate Institute in Toronto, he went on to study Arts at York University. Brent was also a Cub Scout, Navy League Cadet, Army Cadet with the Toronto Scottish Regiment Cadets and a member of HMCS York.  After graduation, he landed his first job as a teller at “his bank” Toronto Dominion bank and he climbed the ladder to Branch Manager within a few years. After working at TD, Brent worked in Mortgage Brokerage and then in Insurance with his own Agency in his selected home town of Port Perry. He met his sweetheart and the love of his life, Rhonda (nee Pickering), and they married in the Village of Cherrywood United Church in 1991 going on to have three wonderful daughters Courtney, Brooklyn and Cadence.

Brent was a force of nature, never afraid of hard work or helping a friend or family member with anything. He was endlessly determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world. He was unendingly proud of his family. Anyone who knew him knows that he loved trading cars, Elvis, The Rolling Stones, Captain Kirk, his dog Beau and always could find something to laugh at. He was the most loving father and husband a family could ask for. He was best friends to many who knew him. Brent was predeceased by his father, John Walton Holmes. He is survived by His wife Rhonda and daughters Courtney, Brooklyn and Cadence, mother Florence (Mike), sister Bridget DeWyze and her family and brother Brian and his family.

The family would like to also like to thank the healthcare teams at Sunnybrook, Princess Margaret and Lakeridge Health Oshawa, Emergency and ICU, for their dedicated care, hard work and professionalism.
