FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Northern Lights College will be flying its flags at half-mast in honour of former president and CEO Dr. Bryn Kulmatycki.

Bryn passed away in St. Albert, Alberta, early Thursday morning, according to the college.

He served as president of NLC from 2015 until January of this year and had already been battling cancer for several months at the time of his retirement.

“He stepped away from his position to tend to his health and to spend time with his family – his wife, Shirley; his children, Ian, Preston, and Tracy (McLellan); and his grandchildren. They were by his side throughout his final days and were with him when he passed into his final rest,’ said a release.

“All who knew Bryn loved him and will miss him, but most especially those at NLC who grieve his loss.”

The college is planning a memorial service in the coming weeks.
