June 17, 1946 – August 3, 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Brian Morrison at the age of 66 years.
He will be remembered by the love of his life and best friend Jacquie Fitzgerald. Brian was an incredible father and dearly loved by his six children, Darcie (Ken), Chris (Lisa), Jessica (Alex), Amy, Darla and Spanky, and his grandson John. He was the eldest child of Donald and Marjorie Morrison, a brother to Marilyn (Brian), Alan, and Petie (Pat) and an uncle to Wesley, Dawn (Dave), Robbie, Michelle, Tyler and Emily.
Brian was born in Forfar, Scotland and moved to Calgary when he was seven. During his fifty-nine years in Calgary, he experienced and was very passionate about many careers including teaching, real estate, coaching and being a small business owner. A typical week in the life of Brian comprised of lunch with his dad, dinner with his children, Friday date night with Jacquie, 10:00 a.m. poker tournaments, soccer games, daily runs and all his children’s sporting events.
His greatest enjoyment in life was spending time with his family and friends who meant everything to him. He was incredibly compassionate, loving and adored by everyone who crossed his path.
A Celebration of Brian’s Life will be held at Deerfoot Inn and Casino in the Chrome Room (1000, 11500 – 35 Street S.E.) on Friday, August 10, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. In honour of Brian’s passion for poker, a tournament will be held following the service.
