I’m absolutely crushed to hear the passing of a great friend and first pro hockey roommate Brent Pope who was ill, and passed away earlier today. I’m gutted.
Brent and I lost touch the last 2 years as people sometimes do but he was an amazing friend and person. During my battle with depression early on it was Brent who picked me up at my house and took me out for lunches and did activities together to help get each other out of whatever funk life has dealt us. He was larger than life personality and the most reliable guy I knew. I’m at a loss for words as I type this but Popey I love you brother. I sit here in tears upset at myself for losing touch with you during my own battle but it was you who helped start me on the right track. You and I started going to church together briefly in 2017 and although we ended up thinking it wasn’t necessarily for us, We really wanted something to help us.
I’m so sorry Popey😪
Reunited with your Dad who you dearly missed I remember. And prayers to your entire family.
Your Mom and Brother. And to your young family, Wife Son and daughter.
I will never forget you my friend. Thank you for being the engine for me when I was lost inside 6 years ago.
From the entire Barton Family we send our deepest condolences.❤😪🙏🙏🙏🙏🏒
