Brian Jackson

February 25, 1939 - October 28, 2016

Tribute

It is with heavy hearts and wonderful memories that we say goodbye to Brian Jackson. Brian died peacefully at home after a short but courageous battle with cancer. He could kick the heck out of a soccer ball but could not kick this disease.

Brian was born in Liverpool in 1939, the youngest and most mischievous of seven children. He spent his younger years biking to Wales, hanging with his mates and courting the love of his life, Marge. In the 1970s, they packed up his Elvis records and immigrated to Canada to find a new life.

Brian worked for many years at the mill and was well known for his love of soccer, darts, lawn bowling and questionable jokes. He loved to make people laugh and always had a funny story to tell. Brian and Marge loved to travel and shared 55 years of adventures and memories.

Brian is survived by his wife Marge and his daughter Gaynor. He also leaves behind one brother, Billy, and many nieces and nephews whom he loved to tease but completely adored.
We would like to thank all the wonderful medical professionals who supported him through this journey, in particular, Janet White, Sheena Fraser and Giselle Reyes. A special thank-you to our angel, Delma

An informal celebration of “The Life of Brian” will be held on Saturday, November 5, from 2-4 pm at Powell River Lawn Bowling Club. Friends are invited to come and share a story or two and raise a final glass in Brian’s memory.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the charity of your choice.
