A young musician has died

A Kelowna musician has died suddenly at just 25.

Matt Depper was the lead singer of a heavy metal band called Apollyon.

According to an obituary published Jan. 17, Depper left “a legacy of loving memories, and those who knew him will miss him dearly.”

A GoFundMe has been launched to support his partner, Brittney King, who is pregnant.

In an Instagram post, King shared his grief.

“It is with the deepest sorrow I have ever felt that I must announce the sudden passing of my beloved best friend, lover and life partner.”

“Matt left me one last gift before he passed away, and while I’m so devastated to have to announce it, in this way Matt and I are expecting our first child together. He was going to be the most amazing dad and he was so excited to start this journey together,” she said.

The GoFundMe says Depper was a healthcare worker and was in college to become a social worker to help people through addiction.

“This was all to support Brittney and her child. I am raising funds for her and the child she will have to deliver unfortunately without her partner. Anything and everything will help in these difficult times,” said George Lindquist.

A total of $14,855 has been raised to date.
