Our hearts are broken and forever changed with the passing of our dear son, brother, uncle and friend Brian Dale Levick. Brian peacefully went to heaven on Saturday, November 21, 2015.
Brian was born to Fin and Margret Levick on August 5, 1961 in Trail. He was a dream child for his parents, easy going and happy. Growing up in Trail with his brother Morley (Gail) Levick, sisters Shelley Levick, Brenda (Wayne) Moncrief, and Sheryl (Neil) Moon. Brian had an awesome childhood filled with memories of reading, music, travelling and Christina Lake. Later Brian became an outstanding Uncle to Mathew/Kody Moncrief, Samantha Levick, and David/Michael/Chelsea Moon. Brian was interwoven into a tight knit family that cherished their time with him.
Brian was the son of a Trucker. This meant he learned early in life to work hard and work long hours without complaining. Brian was the third generation to operate Bryan’s Transfer. He started as a driver in the garbage truck, learned all he could about mechanics and later ran the crane.
From an early age, Brian had a love of music that lead to the forming of numerous bands. He was well known in the music community for his soulful voice and multifaceted talents. Brian was a self taught musician with the ability to play any instrument he picked up. His passion was guitar from an early age but the harmonica, keyboard, mandolin worked in to his music as well. Brian’s songs had depth and meaning … best days were spent writing for hours and creating new tunes.
Brian was a friend to all and many. He will be fondly remembered as a companion who was never too busy to help you out of a jam or to talk, he would sympathize but make sure you didn’t get too egotistical.
Brian your smile, kindness and music lives on forever in our hearts.
A Celebration of Life will take place Sunday, December 6th at 2:00 pm in the Trail Legion Hall. Reverend Ken Siemens officiating. Jordan Wren of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with the arrangements.
