McNab, Bryce John David

bryce mcnab

It is with tear filled eyes and sad hearts that we entrust our beloved Bryce into the loving care of our Lord. And, until we meet again, from “strength to strength.”
Bryce was the eldest child of Dave and Bernadette (Materi) McNab. His brother Marc made his appearance some 22 months later and an inseparable friendship ensued. Bryce attended school in Fort Macleod, graduating from F.P. Walshe in 1990 and continued his education at the University of Alberta where he received his Bachelor of Commerce Degree. After being employed in Calgary for a few years, he returned home to Fort Macleod. He loved Fort Macleod and small town living as opposed to high rises and was happy to trade in his suits and ties for jeans and denim shirts. In 1999, he obtained his realtors licence with McNab Realty Ltd., a real estate company, owned and operated by his parents, since 1975. Bryce loved people and in this profession, he could do the thing he liked to do best — serve. To his delight, Marc got his Associate Brokers Licence and joined the company in 2006. All this time, Bryce managed the pivots and calved cows with Marc on the family ranch, north of Fort Macleod, always making his contributions to the family businesses, look easy.
His love of agriculture (particularly growing Timothy hay), was evidenced in discussions with friends and neighbours. As a diligent student of the aggregate industry, his passion caused him to study, learn and employ his knowledge.
In 2010, he found his true love when Janet Sulapas came into his life.
Their devotion to one another was a thing of beauty that impacted us all.
He adored their two dear children, Matthew Bryce McNab (25-04-11) and Paris Bernadette McNab (05-08-13). He was a “hands-on” dad who was with them every step of the way.
Bryce enjoyed and participated in many sports. Golf, hockey, curling, volleyball, rugby, snow skiing, and water skiing were some of them. He could also challenge you to a game of snooker, or a card game of rook.
He was a staunch supporter of World Vision and numerous other charities. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus.
Bryce’s favorite scriptures were the Beatitudes and 1 Cor. 13. He lived them; it is how we knew him. They characterized his daily life and for us, his family, this was what defined who he was, not the illness that claimed him.
Bryce is survived by his loving family: Janet Sulapas (spouse); Matthew Bryce McNab (son); Paris Bernadette McNab (daughter); Dave and Bernadette McNab (parents); Marc McNab (brother), Marc’s wife, Maribel and their children Diego, Madison and Mikaela; the extended McNab, Sulapas and Materi families.

Bryce brought a special beauty to this world. A beauty made of love and compassion, caring and devotion. A beauty that touched our lives. A presence that brightened our days.
“Love will last forever.” 1 Cor. 13:8
