Remembering Brant Bardy (1963-2009)

I was saddened to learn just recently of the sudden passing of Brant Bardy, Communications Officer and Director of Nation Building for the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (Tyendinaga-Mohawk Territory).

Brant spoke to our Loyalist PR students just a few months ago (see earlier post).

In fact, I was about to contact him to visit our classroom again for the winter semester when I learned of his passing.

We'll miss you, Brant. Your passion and quiet dignity will never be forgotten.

Very sorry to hear about the passing of a fellow PR professional. Not that we PR students are professionals as of yet; we will be! Passed at only 46, such an early age.

I'm sorry Kerry! I was positive that I let you know when it first happened...but things were very confused during those first weeks.

Brant's passing was such a shock to the community. He was such an inspiration and I am so grateful to have had those few months to learn from him.
