Obituary for Gregory Mark O'Brien

April 6, 1990 - November 4, 2023


Thoughout his younger years, Greg had a love of trains and frogs (of which there were many at our cabin at Lac La Hache). He loved catching frogs and each one had a name (though how he could tell them apart we still don't know). Many happy memories were made up at the cabin with both friends and family: swimming and canoeing with his brother Todd, roasting marshmallows over a campfire, watching for satellites, ski trips in the winter and the dangerous sport of pool noodle hockey.

As he grew up he developed a love of music, teaching himself how to play the guitar and electric bass. In high school (grade 8), Greg won an award for his saxophone skills. As well, he took up archery and competed in the BC Summer Games.

Greg showed a technical aptitude from an early age when he mastered changing movies on the VCR at the age of 1. In his teens, he started building computers from scratch. He was the "go to" guy whenever anyone needed help with their computer. He loved gaming and made many online friends around the world. His love of anything technical even came into play when naming his cat: Gigabyte.

Greg worked for London Drugs from the age of 16. He was a hardworking and responsible young man. He bought his own condo at the age of 26.

Greg was a wonderful son who will be missed by many. He is survived by his mom Laurie, brother Todd, Nana (Donna Walsh), Auntie Maureen, Auntie Liz and Uncle Wayne and cousins David, Karen (Des), Chloe, Madeline, Daria, Avery and Davin.

Greg passed away suddenly due to complications from Addisons disease. He was way too young to leave us. Love you Greg. We'll miss you dearly. Say Hi to your Dad for us.







In Loving Memory
