Brian PATTERSON

BRIAN HUGH, 1952 – 2013: With deep sadness we announce the sudden passing of Brian from a heart attack at Princeton General Hospital on Friday September 13, 2013 at the age of 61 years. Brian was born on April 10, 1952 in Belfast, Northern Ireland to parents Hugh and Dinah who have predeceased him. He immigrated to Canada around the age of 4. Brian received his primary and secondary education in Coquitlam, BC, later going on to Simon Fraser University in Burnaby. During his years at the coast he enjoyed sailing and skiing at Grouse Mountain. His greatest lifelong passion has been his motorcycles. In 1980 he met Gail. He retired early due to health reasons and they moved to Princeton in July, 2005. In 2008 he started on home dialysis awaiting a kidney transplant. He will be lovingly missed by his long time partner Gail Davidson, three sisters; Norma (Doug) Cairns, Dinah (Ron) Nickel, and Beth (Rick) Kok, as well as many nieces and nephews and relatives in Canada, Northern Ireland, and the United States. A celebration of Brian’s life will be held at a later date. To honor Brian, please consider becoming an organ donor or making a donation to the Kidney Foundation.
