Bradley Glen Tippett

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Bradley Glen Tippett on September 29, 2023. He was a loving father, son, and brother, and had a wide network of friends whom he cherished.
Brad was born September 8, 1959, in Regina Saskatchewan, spent his early years in Moosomin and Regina, and then moved to Prince Albert in 1972 when the family relocated. Brad was a talented athlete from a young age, primarily playing football, soccer and hockey during his elementary and secondary school years, including junior hockey with the Prince Albert Raiders. It was clear that hockey was his sport of choice, and he attended the University of Michigan on a full hockey scholarship. He was very proud of being a U of M and Wolverine alumni, and obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration, with honours.
After living in Regina for many years, he spent the last years of his life in Sidney, British Columbia, enjoying happy times in “Sidney by the Sea”.
Brad loved his two sons, Chase and Barrett, beyond measure and was always very proud to speak of their accomplishments.
Hockey was a central part of his life. He played for the Sherbrooke Jets in the American Hockey League, followed by the Komets in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Later turning to coaching, he had tenures coaching the Prince Albert AAA Midget Raiders, and as Assistant Coach of the Prince Albert Raiders and Head Coach of the Regina Pats. He also coached his sons’ teams at various points. His achievements in sports were recognized with an induction to the Prince Albert Sports Hall of Fame in 1998. After relocating to Sidney, he kept his love for hockey going by coaching the Peninsula Panthers Junior B team. He took great pride in teaching and mentoring young players both on and off the ice.
Professionally, Brad enjoyed a well respected career in finance, including as a Vice President for RBC Dominion Securities and later while in British Columbia as a Financial Advisor for Raymond James.
Brad is predeceased by his father, Glen Tippett, and his grandparents, Graham and Muriel McDonald and Arnold and Gladys Tippett. He is survived by his sons, Chase and Barrett (and their mother Joanne Peters), his mother, Maggie Morris, brother Dave (Wendy) and sister Wendy, and nieces Nicole Brown and Natalie Tippett and their families.
As part of a loving extended family, Brad is predeceased by his stepfather Harvey Morris and stepbrother Bill Morris. He is survived by his stepmother Catherine Davison, and step siblings Gaylene Schwartz, Kathy Hovorka and Doug Morris, and their families.
Our family has been deeply touched by the messages we have received conveying how much Brad meant to them and what a wonderful man he was. These messages have meant more than we can ever put into words.
A memorial will be determined at a later date.
For those wishing to make a contribution in memory of Brad, donations to the Prince Albert Minor Hockey Association or Regina Minor Hockey Association would be greatly appreciated.
Rest peacefully Brad.

    We are so sorry about Brad’s passing. Our son Aleko played for him on the Peninsula Panthers and they became very close after teammate Grants terrible car accident. He really went out of his way to help with my son’s present achievements and we couldn’t be more grateful. Rest in peace Brad

    Our deepest condolences and thoughts on Brads passing. He was an outstanding person and coach. Our son was lucky enough to have him coach during his years in Queen City hockey. He will be sadly missed by all that knew him.

    Sorry to hear of Brad’s passing. I knew Brad for many years from both hockey and buisness. He was a very humble man and he will be missed a lot. His two boys should be very proud of all his accomplishments and know they meant everything to him. Everyone will miss him.

    Thinking of Brad and everyone that knew him. He was my little buddy from an early age when I babysat him and then when I lived with Glen and Marg. Dave and I went to all the Pats games with Brad. We had such a wonderful time. Hockey and his family were everything to him. I know he did a great job with everything he took on in life. Even though I did not see alot of him in the later years, I will always remember Brad as my little buddy and one of my favourites. He was one of the good guys!
