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, traveled, 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.
