Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Sheila, I was so surprised and saddened to hear that Brian had passed away. I had known you both for such a long time. We would like to have shared in his Celebration of Life, but were away at the time. My thoughts and sympathy to you and your family.

  • Brian was a friend from United College days. Lots of fun and a true gentleman! My condolences to Sheila and Family. - Posted by: Nancy Gates (Friend) on: May 27, 2019

  • Sadly another Tuxedo and SJR alumnus has passed. Brian was an active cadet at SJR and had quite a interest in cars, fast mostly. He was not a person who navigated on the water well but we all survived his upside down chart reading on LOTW. He was part of an interesting group that had cottages on Lake Winnipeg and he and Sheila hosted many great get togethers there. Condolences to Sheila and the kids. Now Giggles will have someone to play with in the Great Beyond.. Rest in Peace - Posted by: Allan Tucker (friend) on: May 26, 2019

  • Sheila, Colin, Jonathan, Robert, James and families, both Georgialee & I offer our heartfelt condolences. Although we were unable to maintain close ties over the years we have always felt affinity with Brian. I warmly recall Brian from our Winnipeg days as we grew up together. Brian was always a wonderfully uplifting friend who provided genuine sincerity and friendship. The world was a better place wherever Brian touched down. May God grant each of you peace and His comfort during these dark days. - Posted by: Doug Lang (Friend) on: May 25, 2019
