Bryn Thiessen, rancher, working cowboy, pastor, cowboy poet, Canadian Cowboy Country columnist and literally, a friend to all he met, died on Jan 16. He was 63.
Bryn was a well-respected cowboy who lived at the end of a road braved by few. Bryn was the eternal optimist who could raise good cattle and horses back West of Sundre in grizzly country.
A revered and most often hilarious cowboy poet, he was also a cowboy preacher with a “Jack Pine degree in theology” and the mainstay of the Cochrane Cowboy Church. Bryn was a good man and a wise man, with a wealth of friends and a heart filled with compassion and forgiveness.
