July 27, 1936 - October. 23, 2023
Brian passed away peacefully, enjoying his Happy Hour glass of red wine. It was his favourite time of day It soothed the pain and suffering and boredom of heart failure 24/7.
He is survived by Liz, his wife of 61 years whom he met while both were in Naval Reserves at H.M.C.S. Chippawa, His 2 sons, Rick (Wpg./Thailand ) and Bunny his wife Kerry (Banff) and the lights of his life, his two beautiful and feisty granddaughters, Raina and Elora. Plus many nieces and nephews both in Wpg., Banff and elsewhere in Alberta. He loved his sons so much, and was so proud of all their accomplishments.
Brian led an active life enjoying many interests and activities. He always did the best he could do, no matter what it was. Working at MTS. and serving in the Reserve Navy, he retired from both at the age of 55. After that, he volunteered at a lot of different things, but mainly with the MTS Pioneers fixing talking books for the CNIB, and then for Victoria Lifeline. As well as enjoying curling, both ice and floor, golf fishing camping and cooking. And for the first 5 years he also kept the house and got the meals.
Then Liz retired and the pace picked up. Travel now was stepped up and enjoyed by both. He enjoyed their life in their home on S. Andrews Rd. for 47 yrs. Then Made a new life and friends in the new Apartment.
In short, Brian loved family, friends, music (as long as it was before 1950) and babies and toddlers and dogs. Rest in peace Darling. We will all miss you.
