It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Brian Beck, beloved husband, father, and grandfather on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at the age of 63 years.

Brian was born in Roblin, Manitoba to Christine and Tom Beck. He met Debra in Calgary and they later married in May of 1972. Brian had many passions in life which included hunting, fishing, woodworking, a variety of handywork and spending warm days outside. Brian’s love and passion was the family cottage.

Brian is also survived by his siblings, Arlene (Eric) Giest, Doris (Carl) Slugoski, Doug (June), Laurence (Sandra), Ann (Fidele) Carriere, Terry (Maurice) Carriere, Bev (Terry) Carriere, and Dennis (Debbie); as well as numerous nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.

  1. Christine Doerr :

    Debra, Aaron & Family, & Jason:

    A poem: Remembering (Al Anon)
    May the winds of love blow softly,
    On a quiet peaceful spot,
    Where the one we love is sleeping,
    And will never be forgot.

    Remember Brian with a smile today,
    He was not one for tears,
    Reflect instead on memories,
    Of all the happy years.

    Recall to mind the way he spoke,
    And all the happy things he said,
    His strength, his jokes, the way he laughed,
    Remember these instead.

    The good times he shared with us,
    His eyes that shone with fun,
    So much of him that never died,
    He left for everyone.

    Peace & Prayers,
    Christine/ Dalyce & Michaela Berg
