We Remember


August 12, 1922 — August 15, 2013

Our beloved father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend, Brian Reesor, passed away peacefully on August 15th at the age of 91. He was predeceased by his wife Margaret in 2012, and is survived by their two children, Kathy and David, sisters Shirl and Joyce, and grandchildren Lisa, Tarah, Colin, Brandi and Brianne.

This man of science saw the world through a kaleidoscope of wonderment and curiosity. How does that work? What causes that? Why does that happen?

Yet this humble man was always eager to hear other opinions. He was interested in other people, and avoided talking about himself despite his intellect and many accomplishments. Brian was an award-winning singer as a young man and had a passion, throughout his life, for hunting and fishing.

As a result of his enquiring mind, quick wit and a lively sense of humour, Brian attracted a wide circle of close friends over the years, with whom he, and his beloved wife, Marg, travelled, played games and laughed. Brian was easy-going, fun and interesting to be around, a good conversationalist and always maintained a positive attitude through adversity. He liked his scotch cold and his relationships warm. His smile lit up the room and the hearts of those around him. A rich, interesting and rewarding life was his.

Brian was the most compassionate, non-judgmental person. Never did he express a mean or bitter comment. He was, indeed, a gentle man and a gentleman. Sadness fills our hearts, and although that will fade somewhat with time, the wonderful memories of him that we have will last forever.

Goodbye and thanks for everything. We will all miss you.
