BRIAN EDWARD BAGU 1947 - 2013 Brian Edward Bagu, beloved husband of Donna Bagu, passed away peacefully after a short, courageous battle with cancer at Boundary Trails Health Centre on March 28, 2013 at the age of 65 years. Brian was born on December 22, 1947 in Kipling, Saskatchewan where he was raised. He moved into Winnipeg in the early 1960s and later became a mechanic. Brian then joined the Navy where he served for five years. Upon returning to Winnipeg, Brian opened a pool servicing business where he made many contacts and friends. Brian and Donna have resided in Miami, Manitoba for the past two years. His joys in life were boating and fishing, gardening, watching sports and playing bingo at the local hall. He also enjoyed cooking and was quite the chef. Brian will be remembered for always being there to lend a helping hand. Besides his loving wife Donna, of 14 years, Brian will be sadly missed by his mother, Elizabeth (Albert), his stepchildren Larry and Dean, grandson Dylan, brother Barry Bagu (Elaine), sister Brenda Biesental (Bruce), brother-in-law Dale Alderson (Diana), sisters-in-law Leanne Allen (Marty), Janet Sampson, Dianne Sampson (Chris), and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and good friends. Brian was predeceased by his father Ernest Bagu. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at Headingley United Church located at 110 Bridge Road, Headingley, MB R4H 1G3.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • I knew Brian in 1971 when we worked at Oakland Shell on Henderson Hwy. He drove a new orange Duster at that time. After work we used to go to a small western bar in basement on north Main Street. In 1972 Brian went to work as mechanic at Midland Concrete, I moved on as a fire sprinkler pipe fitter installer. Those days lots of good times. Tried to find him on Facebook, but found him under Passages. Funny how life goes. God rest his soul and one day meet on the other side. - Posted by: Garry Pahahitski (Friend ) on: Sep 08, 2019
