April 7th, 1937 – April 24th, 2016
Bryan passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 24th, 2016 at Sunset Lodge in Victoria, BC.
Bryan is survived by his wife Dale; daughter Sabrina (Thomas); grandchildren Cassia and Cayden; step-son Stephen Wilson (Tanis); granddaughters Jenna and Kayla; step-son Scott Wilson (Rie); grandsons Naoki and Kota; cousins Cathy Rutherford, John Peterson, and Paul Peterson; as well as many friends.
Bryan was the much loved son of Bert and Myrtle (Shuttleworth) Webster. Bryan grew up in the small railroad town of Transcona, Manitoba (now part of Winnipeg) where his father worked in the CNR shops, the largest employer in town. He often joked that he had to behave himself at school because his two maiden aunts were teachers there. It was a great time and place to be a kid and Bryan had many stories that he shared.
In later years Bryan went on to achieve the designations of both Registered Industrial Accountant and Certified General Accountant. He met his wife Dale, who was the administrator of the CGA Association when he was studying for his designation, and they later married in 1975.
For many years Bryan was employed by Reimer Express Lines, a large motor freight company based in Winnipeg, as Director of Maintenance and later VP of Finance. After taking an early retirement from the corporate world, Bryan became a consultant to the industry for several years before retiring to Comox, BC in 1990 where he enjoyed golf, curling and the warm winters of the west coast. Bryan and Dale met many people through the Newcomers Club and enjoyed their evenings socializing with a great group of friends. Bryan also kept himself busy advocating to save the E&N Railway from ceasing operations on Vancouver Island.
Bryan was also a dedicated member of the Masons (Northern Light Lodge) as well as the Shriners (Khartum Temple) in Winnipeg and later the Comox Valley Shriners.
The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Sunset Lodge for the warm and caring support they provided Bryan over the last year.
As per Bryan’s wishes he will be cremated and will be laid to rest with his parents at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens in Winnipeg at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Bryan’s name to Salvation Army Sunset Lodge, 952 Arm Street, Victoria, V9A 4G7.
