Jamie Brannen and his father Bob died: What happened? Cause of death Explained

Capital winter club announces the passing of Jamie Brannen and his adored father Bob with profound shock and sadness. Let’s see what happened to Jamie Brannen and his father Bob and their cause of death in detail.


What happened to Jamie Brannen and his father Bob?

The extremely talented Canadian curler Jamie Brannen, 47, from Upper Kingsclear, New Brunswick, and his father legendary curler Bob Brannen, passed away on September 24, 2022, tragically and unexpectedly, leaving his family, close relatives, and other loved ones in utter despair.

Capital winter club posted the untimely passing of Jamie Brannen and his father Bob on their official Facebook page.

It is with profound disbelief and sadness that we share the news that Jamie Brannen and his beloved father Bob have passed away.

Bob loved to curl and he passed that on to his family. At the Capital Winter Club he took care of those he curled with, making sure ever member had what they needed, offering encouragement and support to new curlers and it was obvious to everyone that he passed his love of the sport on to Jamie. Bob was Jamie’s biggest fan never missing a game or an opportunity to talk about Jamie’s accomplishments.

Jamie represented NB in 6 of the last 7 Briers. He also represented NB at the Canadian Mixed as Skip in 2008 and finishing in 4th place in 2021. Around the Club, he was the life of any curling draw. He was competitive but he didn’t take club play to seriously, often joking with the opposing team and chatting with players on the other sheets. Jamie gave back to the curling community and the Capital Winter Club as a volunteer. He volunteered for years with our junior program, passing on his love of the sport to his daughter Julie and many other young curlers. He was Chair of the Website and Social Media Committee for the 2013 World Mixed Doubles and Senior Curling Championships and sat on the Board of Director’s. Jamie volunteered every year at our Learn to Curl Program, NB Little Rocks Jamboree and the Jake Thomas Celebrity Curling Classic.

There are no words to express our sadness over the loss of both Bob and Jamie.

All of us are sending all of our thoughts, prayers and strength to the Brannen Family.


Jamie Brannen and Bob Cause of death

Team Grattan - Curling Shared an emotional tribute (1)

Neither the Capital winter club nor any family members mention any cause of death for Jamie Brannen and his father Bob.

Online reports claim that both of them passed away in a terrible car accident. Many people, especially those near the family and fans, are curious to know how Jamie’s life ended. All we could know as of right now is that Jamie and his father Bob were both declared dead after suffering injuries in a horrific car accident.

However, it appears that not much can be revealed at this time until the family releases a definitive declaration on the matter. As always, we will investigate and update this news as soon as it is confirmed.

Therefore, we must just wait and give the family members the space and time they need to process this enormous loss.

Medico topics have been trying to reach out to the family and relatives for comment on the incident. So far, no responses have been received. We will update the page once enough information is available. More information on Jamie Brannen and Bob Cause of Death will be added soon.

Jamie served on the board of directors and chaired the website and social media committee for the 2013 World Mixed Doubles and Senior Curling Championships. Jamie volunteered each year at the Jake Thomas Celebrity Curling Classic, the NB Little Rocks Jamboree, and our Learn to Curl Program.

Club members stated that no words can adequately explain how saddened we are by the passing of both Bob and Jamie. We are all giving the Brannen family our best wishes, prayers, and energy.

Jamie Brannen and his father Bob died:

The message reads,

It’s been an emotional 24 hours for our team. We are shocked and in disbelief by the news that our teammate and friend has passed away suddenly. We want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support we have received from across the country, it has been overwhelming.

Jamie Brannen was the heart and soul of our team for almost 5 years. He was our friend and brother and we were lucky to have him as part of our team. Jamie impacted so many in the curling world with his energy, his humor, and his intensity. He was a class act and he has always made his teammates better players and more importantly better people.

While we are heartbroken and devastated by his passing, we are going to put our full energies into supporting his family and his community during this time. Leslie, Julie, and Alex, you are in our thoughts. Jamie – We love you brother and you will be missed by all of us tremendously.

Bob Brennan – Jamie’s father has also passed away and we want to also express how much he will also be missed. He was Jamie’s biggest fan and by extension ours. His quiet advice and post-game consults will be missed greatly by our team. Curling teams become families and our team has lost a big piece of ourselves today. Bob -Jamie. We love you ……..

We have all experienced grief at some point and we should know enough about loss by now to realize that you never really stop missing someone–you just learn to live around the huge gaping hole of their absence. Jamie will be that for us and he will be missed and never ever forgotten.


Jamie Brannen’s recent games

Jamie Brannen and his father Bob died What happened Cause of death Explained

Jamie represented Team New Brunswick as Terry Odishaw’s alternate in the 2019 Tim Hortons Brier, where they ended with a 3-4 record. Jamie left the Jones team and joined Grattan for the 2019–20 campaign. By winning the Jim Sullivan Curling Classic and playing in Tier 2 of the 2019 Tour Challenge, where they finished third, they were successful on the tour.

Later on in the campaign, the team took home the 2020 New Brunswick Tankard and represented the province in the 2020 Tim Hortons Brier in Kingston, Ontario. After starting 1-2, they won over higher-seeded opponents from Ontario’s John Epping and British Columbia’s Steve Laycock to put themselves in a good position heading into their last two games.

They would unfortunately lose both of those matches, ending the round robin at 3-4 and missing the playoffs.

The COVID-19 outbreak in New Brunswick forced the cancellation of the provincial championship in 2021. As the current provincial champions, Team Grattan accepted a request to represent New Brunswick at the 2021 Tim Hortons Brier. Due to travel restrictions, Team Grattan member Paul Dobson made the decision to stay home.

Jonathan Beuk from Ontario took his place. The Grattan rink in the Brier is 4-1 with three games left after defeating higher seeds Mike McEwen and Brad Jacobs. However, they lost their next three games, same like in 2020, and missed out on the championship pool.

Fans are shocked and devastated to know about Jamie Brannen’s untimely demise.

Scott Jones shared his thoughts,

An unimaginable couple of days in Fredericton with the sudden passing of Jamie and Bob Brannen. Jamie was a teammate for many years and a few briers and his Dad was a passionate curling fan of all his teams over the years. More importantly, they were good people, good friends that would always lend a hand or an ear. My deepest condolences go out to Jamie and Bob’s families. Life is precious and short and this loss reminds us of that during this difficult time.

Words cannot describe how sad and shocked we all are to hear of the passing of Jamie and Bob Brannen. We heard the news yesterday and said, that’s not possible. Jamie was an amazing teammate but an even better friend. Bob loved Jamie so much and never missed an opportunity to see him curl. My love goes out to Lesley, Julie, Alex, and the rest of the family. I’m so sorry.

Both of them were the best of people. I spent countless hours listening to Jamie’s stories after our games together, and I’m devastated I don’t get to hear countless more.

No words can be added to what has already been saying. Jamie was a teammate for 6 years including his first and second Briers. But more than that, he was a friend that would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. My deepest sympathies to Jamie and Bob’s family and friends during this time.
