BRIAN KENDALL DARRAGH
He was predeceased by his beloved wife Carol in June. He leaves to mourn his daughter Ingrid (Rick, Braden (Cindi)), Eric (Samantha, Jaxon) and Char (Morley, Ariel and Matt).
Dad had just celebrated his 93rd birthday a few weeks ago.
Should you desire to support something very dear to Dad's heart, the restoration project of Streetcar # 356 currently underway is something he really wanted to see through to completion. Donations to support that can be made to Heritage Winnipeg, 509-63 Albert St., Winnipeg, MB R3B 1G4. Dad also cared deeply about First Lutheran Church, 580 Victor Street, Winnipeg, MB R3G 1R2.
Cremation has taken place. A longer column will follow with plans for a Celebration of Life in the months ahead.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Dear Ingrid and Charlene, I was so sorry to hear of the passing of both your parents. I'm sure both of you and your families miss them terribly. They were both lovely people and such obviously devoted parents. My son Simon King got to know them a bit at First Lutheran (he was a volunteer pipe organist and musician under the direction of Chrystl Bartel). Your parents were always so friendly when we saw them there at Christmas or other events when we went hear Simon. Their church community will also miss them, I'm sure. Sincerely, Wendy (Burke) King - Posted by: Wendy (Burke) King (Neighbour) on: Jan 20, 2022
Dear family of Brian and Carol. I lament the passing of your dear parents. At First Lutheran I and my wife Marie, now deceased, often sat in the pew in front of them and we shared the peace with a kind greeting. Their gracious attitude was a blessing. Brian’s recollections of the history of the congregation was a gift, his adopted faith and Icelandic roots. And then we shared an interest in streetcars, his career as a driver, his history of this chapter of public transit in Winnipeg and his devotion to the railway museum and contribution to the refurbishment of a last remaining streetcar. They are a great loss to the church and community and their family. Rest In Peace. Thanks be to God. - Posted by: Ken Kuhn (Friend) on: Jan 09, 2022
Ingrid and Char, I am the youngest daughter of Abe and Betty Friesen. Your Mum worked with my Mum at Eaton's a life time ago. The day of your Mum and Dad's wedding, my Dad cut off part of his pinky finger. After his finger was stitched up they attended your Mum and Dad's wedding. I started Transit in June of 1985 and spent a lot of time talking to your Dad about Transit. He was a Mentor to me before Transit had mentors and I was fortunate enough to go for the Last ride on the ELF bus on R 82... The bus your dad didn't like to drive and cheered when he got to drive a little Jimmy. Your Dad told me, once you drive a Jimmy once... you will never want to drive a Flyer again! He was right! I was able to attend his book launching and will treasure my autographed copy. Your Dad and I traded books. My book was called " Life in the Curb Lane." I have good memories of all the interactions I had with both your folks. So sad and sorry for the loss of your Mum and Dad. - Posted by: Kathie Klassen (co-worker bus driver) on: Jan 03, 2022
