Family, friends and loved ones were saddened by the passing of Adrian Thomas Enright on Tuesday, November 10th at Vancouver General Hospital.
Adrian was born October 26th, 1957 in Edmonton, Alberta to parents Jean and Jack Enright. He and his family moved to Queenstown, New Zealand when Adrian was only three years old. Queenstown was his home for many years. He attended school, played rugby, and was a huge help to his family of five siblings until he moved back to Canada in 1979, when he was 21 years old.
Shortly after his arrival in North America, he nomadically made his way to the Great White North, spending a few months in Prince George, but finally settling in Terrace in 1980. Soon after arriving in Terrace, Adrian began working for Scotiabank. His love of rugby immediately drew him to the Terrace rugby league. He energetically played with his team the Northmen for many years.
In 1981 Adrian met the love of his life, Cheryl Lee Enright (Gillis), along with her two children, Candice and Ryan Huffman. Just a few years later in 1985 Adrian and Cheryl Enright tied the knot, and extended the family when Blake Enright was born. Adrian quickly became deeply rooted in Cheryl’s family, taking on the dual positions of Operations Manager for the Tillicum Twin Theatres and Business Manager for the Nass Camp operations.
Adrian was a proud man who worked hard and enthusiastically at everything he did. His love and dedication to his own and extended families was clearly evident in all that he did for them – supporting school activities, turning a house into a home, making tasty meals, running all the errands at home and work. He loved his community of Terrace and his good friends with whom he had a long and lasting relationship. His favourite place on earth was at home in Terrace and he will be missed by who knew him.
Adrian is predeceased by loving wife Cheryl Enright, father Jack and mother Jean Enright. He leaves behind his three children: Candice, Ryan, and Blake, brothers Terry, Wayne, Shell, and Tony and sister Cathie.
Adrian’s service was held on Wednesday, November 18
at the Evangelical Free Church, followed by a reception at Boston Pizza.
The family wishes to extend its heartfelt thanks for all of the expressions of love.
