BRAZIL, Paul “Duane” – Greenwood, NS.
It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden death of the most wonderful, loving husband and truly amazing Dad that God ever gave to this world. Duane died tragically on July 13, 2006 in a cormorant helicopter accident in Canso, NS, age 39 years. He was born in Gander raised in Botwood, Newfoundland. After high school, he moved to St. John’s and in 1990 he joined the Canadian Forces. Upon graduation from his training, he was awarded the Commandant’s Shield for top recruit. Duane spent nine years as an Instrument Electrician technician in Greenwood working on the Aurora aircraft until 1999, when he transferred to Search and Rescue (SAR) as a Flight Engineer. In 2000, Duane and his family were transferred to Gander, NL. That same year, Duane lost his older brother, Gary, in a Coast Guard helicopter accident. Duane’s love of SAR and devotion to helping others took him through that and he always said, If I can bring one more person home, then that mother won’t have to go through what my mom did.” During his four years at 103 SQN in Gander, Duane helped save many souls. He truly loved what he did and believed in the SAR motto “So that others may live.” In 2004, Duane and his family were transferred back to Greenwood, where he continued his SAR career at 413 SQN.
Duane was a devoted, loving husband and proud father. His family and their happiness were always first and foremost. Duane loved life and lived every day to the fullest, always with a smile. Duane was predeceased bys his infant daughter, Cory Allison in 1994 and his brother, Gary Jerome in 2000. He will be sadly missed, forever loved and never forgotten by his girls, devoted and loving wife, Candy (my buddy), two beautiful, very special daughters, Erin, 15 years and Sara, 11 years (his pals). Duane also leaves his loving parents, Gerald and Yvonne Brazil of Torbay, NL; mother and father-in-law, Bonnie and Al Smith of St. John’s, NL; sister, Debbie (Dennis Insley, Nephew, Kristopher); brother, Rodney (friend, Lori Beck and boys); sister-in-law, Denise Brazil (nephew, Ryan, niece, Karlee); sister-in-law, Vicki Strange (nephews, Richard and Ryan); brother-in-law, Jim Kavanah (Joan, nephews, Jacob and Devon, niece, Jenna); brother-in-law, Cory Smith (Cindy, nieces, Stephanie and Allison, nephew and godchild, Tyler); a large circle of aunts, uncles, cousins, very special friends, Mike, Judy and Brogan Janke; the Villeneuve family; the Sutton family; the Jackman family; the Videos; all the bingo bags and their families; his SAR buddies and many co-workers and friends near and far, much too numerous to mention.
Visitation was held at the Middleton Funeral Home, Middleton, NS, (902)825-3448 and at Cauls’ Funeral Home, St. John’s, NL. Funeral service was held Thursday, July 20th at The Basilica of St. John the Baptist, St. John’s, followed by interment in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
