We are so, so sad!

It is with great sorrow that we share the passing of Brian Canning on May 29, 2021. He was born in Mississauga, Ontario, grew up in Orillia, Ontario, and lived in Chilliwack, British Columbia.

He is mourned by his partner, Jennifer Besseling.

He sadly leaves behind his two children of whom he was so proud and loved dearly – Madison (age 19) and Maximillian (Max – age 11).

Also missed and lovingly remembered by his parents, Jim and Glennis Canning.

Dear brother of Karolyn Francis (Tim), Brent (Wendy), and Kevin (Sarah).

Brian will also be remembered by niece – Kimberlee, and nephews – Gavin, William, Thomas, and Robert, and many other Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, family, and friends.

Brian had many life experiences which include –

– leaving home to join the circus, and look after the elephants

– was an amateur magician (who even could trick one of his aunts!)

– obtained his air brake licence and drove a 48 passenger bus

– these are only a few, of many.

Brian’s presence we miss,

His memory we treasure,

Loving him always

Forgetting him never.

He is under the care of Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home, Chilliwack, British ColumbiaObituary
