February 3, 1933 – February 24, 2010
It is with great sadness that the family of Jim Brandenburg announces his passing on Wednesday, February 24, 2010 after a courageous battle with liver cancer fought with dignity and optimism.
Jim is lovingly remembered by his wife Myrna (nee: Stogre) and children Keren Brandenburg, Sean (Michelle) Brandenburg, Marney Bugg, Tracey (Garry) Naylor, Darcy (Murray) Flett, and six grandchildren.
Jim was a deeply spiritual person and will always be remembered for his courage, sense of humour, musical talent and the love he shared with his family and friends. His fearless courage facing his illness set a standard those who loved him can only strive to attain. His enduring love and his forthright adherence to what he believed will comfort and guide us who remain throughout the rest of our lives.
