Obituary of Monty Arthur Bright

September 27, 1955 - Brandon, Manitoba

May 3, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta


It is with great sadness the family of Monty Arthur Bright announces his passing on the morning of Tuesday, May 3, 2022, at the age of 66 years. He left us peacefully after his battle with cancer.


Monty was born in Brandon, MB, and moved to Calgary, AB, with his family when he was 14 years old. He was known to many as a dedicated and hard worker all his life, no matter what the circumstances were. He was a long-time tradesman of over 35 years, in the plumbing and gas-fitting field. Monty had great passions, which included, classical and flamenco guitar, nature, fly fishing, and all creatures great and small. Monty always tried to find the good in everyone he met, being helpful and generous to all. If he became your friend, he would be a great friend.


Monty was predeceased by his father Ivan Bright and his two nephews, Chevy, and Jay Ballance. He leaves behind his mother Helen Bright, two sisters and brother-in-law, Penny and Garth Ballance, and Dee-Anna Hetherington; nephew Colin Hetherington, niece Jaimie Balance, four great-nephews and great-nieces, Brooklyn Werbiski, Rowan Din Hetherington, Hayden Andersen, and Luna Din Hetherington; as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins that will miss him dearly. Besides his family Monty had many close friends who thought very highly of him, and we will all feel an emptiness in our hearts and our lives without him
