Sep 27, 1960 – Mar 9, 2018
It is with great sadness the family of Brian David Andrews announces his passing in Trail on 9 March 2018 at the age of 57.
He will be lovingly remembered and missed by his wife Laurie and children Chelsea, Ryan and Aaron and Step -children Alison, Kyla, Ryann, Dylann; his Grandchildren Brody, Abby, Damian and Adrianna; his Mom and Dad (Momsie and Popsie) Andy and Muriel Andrews of Castlegar and his brother and sisters – Ray, Heather and Sharon and a large extended family.
Special thanks to Dr Yo and Jim Maniago and the staff at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital for their excellent care and support.
At Brian’s request there will be no service. Gwen Ziprick of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services has been entrusted with the arrangements. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence by visiting the family’s register at www.myalternatives.ca
He and Laurie played Township side by side – he did more to advertise that game than the designers themselves. A long-time employee of the Teck EM department, “BA” could dish out the nicknames and with his love of sports, lord help you if his team beat your team the night before. He was 11 when the Bruins won the Stanley Cup and he watched and waited 40 years before they won again. With his sharp wit you knew the meaning of side splitting laughter.
His love for music grew from the crib, knowing the lyrics for pretty much every song, and his hero admiration of Sir Paul was solidified a couple of years ago when he took the family to his concert in Vancouver. He said he could die happy, after only hearing the sound check from outside the arena.
Brian has received his eternal reward. He is in the presence of our Lord, praising and worshipping our King Jesus at the throne of Grace.
