In his 95th year Brian passed away peacefully Monday, January 29, 2018. Brian’s warmth and wonderful smile was always present as was the sparkle in his eyes. Friends and family could expect all three whenever they were with him.
Brian was predeceased by the love of his life, Lib, and was the proud father to his two sons, Liam (Dale) , Jamie (Carol ) and three grandchildren Joshua, Noah and Hannah. B r i a n ’s professional career in Sales Management and Small Business Consulting kept the “Four Morts ” on the move crisscrossing the country as he “climbed the corporate ladder” as a true self-made man. He and Lib never balked at the opportunity to travel and enjoyed many adventures to Asia, Europe, Central America, Mexico and cruises with friends and family. In particular, there was a fond connection to the Auld Sod, his ancestral home, Ireland. Their dream to return to BC was realized when Brian retired and they moved to the peninsula in 1984. Brian enjoyed time on the links, sailing trips in the Gulf Islands, his various men’s groups, but most of all the special times walking on a beach with “his sweetheart” or BBQing in the back garden. Liam, Jamie and family would like to thank the team at Broadmead Lodge for the respect and dignity in the way that Brian was cared for. Their compassion, care and most of all friendship was a great comfort for us all.
The family will be having a private celebration of Brian’s life. A Farewell Celebration for Lib & Brian will be held in Victoria in the late spring
