C. Brian MacConnell - Jan. 1, 2013
Brian MacConnell died peacefully in his home on January 1st after a long and dignified battle with cancer, attended by family and caregivers. Pre-deceased by his wife Emily, survived by children Kate, Brian (Dianne), Mike (Judy), Deborah (Rae) and Patrick (Svetlana), sister Nell, and grandchildren Robert, Andrew, Edward, Sean, Madeleine, Claire, Sasha and Misha. A kind and gentle man, he will be lovingly remembered by all who knew him. A spitfire pilot and mining engineer, Brian led a full and active life, enjoying athletic activities, hiking, travel, reading and watercolour painting, or just to sit and watch nature with his coffee and a cigar. He leaves a legacy of love, and a model for all on how to age with dignity and grace.
