Tragically, our brother, cousin, son, friend, and uncle Julian Dowless has passed away on August 16th, 2018.

We are heartbroken for his mother, sister, and close family and friends. Julian was the most selfless, kind, and giving individual who always had God and his family as the centre of his universe. His legacy will always be his love for God and his devotion to his family and friends.

Julian experienced challenges since childhood as an individual with Type 1 Diabetes. Throughout the challenges, he persevered and remained positive, never burdening anyone else with managing it. 

The grief and heartache of the sudden loss of Julian is completely unfathomable. He lived his life with passion, he poured his heart into ministry and worship, and wanted others to know the truth he lived in Jesus Christ. He was a kind-hearted soul with a gentle spirit and demonstrated tremendous love for those around him. 

Now, Julian needs our help in supporting his family during this difficult time. His sister, Jessica, niece, Nora, and mother, Jeannette were his world. Let's support them in this journey and let them know they are not alone in this process. As cousins and relatives of this incredible man, we are grateful to witness the unconditional love and support that is pouring in for him and his family. 

In effort to help organize funeral arrangements and support for his family, all contributions given will go directly to these expenses. Joshua Bradford-Thompson (Julian's brother-in-law) will be assisting with the donations given.

Julian's loss will be deeply felt by all of us, from his childhood friends, brothers and sisters in Christ, and all of his family members.

"I can see the start of something new
When the hard times fall, I'll take heart, for you've conquered the world" - Julian Dowless, Original Lyrics


Always in our hearts, Julian Dowless (May 12, 1989 - August 16, 2018)

A final update from the family of Julian Dowless:
"This has been one of the hardest, most exhausting and seemingly impossible times for our family. However, we have seen God move more through this season than any other season of our lives. We thank Him not only for the incredible gift Julian was but also for each and every one of you who have helped us properly honour and celebrate Julian’s precious life. The pain and grieving is far from over but we put our trust in the Lord and have hope to be reunited again one day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your contribution to our family fund. You have helped more than you know. We feel blessed beyond measure.
May God bless each and every one of you for your generosity

Julian’s baby sister,

Jessica Bradford (Dowless)"
