April 9, 1923 – July 5, 2008
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of a beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Brian will be missed by his wife of 62 years, Catherine, his sons Stephen (Janet) and Philip (Larissa) and his daughter Ann. He leaves behind his grandchildren Shamess, Meaghan, Kaelan, Liam, Keiran, Brodie, Devon, Tavis, Alex, and Tamara and his great grand-daughter Elena.
Brian was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and served 35 years with the Canadian Army before retiring in 1977 to try his hand at farming in Metcalfe, Ontario. He and Catherine decided to move to Comox in 1990 to be closer to family and to get to know their grandchildren.
Following cremation, a Memorial Mass will be celebrated on Thursday, July 10, 2008 at 11:00 a.m. at Christ the King Catholic Church with Father Paul Murphy, Celebrant. A reception will be held immediately after at the Church.
Donations to the charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
