Brian Richard Laurence
1946 – 2016

Brian was born in Toronto, Ontario, on October 12, 1946, and moved out West in his early 20s. He had many adventures, including being a musician, lead singer and guitarist. Brian settled in Revelstoke 33 years ago and started his business Auto Fix and later Silverline Transmission. He was a grateful member of AA and recently celebrated 26 years of sobriety on June 10. Brian loved his wife, six children and eight grandchildren dearly. One of his passions was helping feed and care for orphaned animals, including his faithful shop-cat Tammy and his Pookey-Bear who never left his side while he was ill. He passed asway on Sunday, June 19.

Brian is survived by his wife Joy; his children: Shaughnessy, Carl, Dawn (Joe), Jennifer (Paul), Roy and Sam (Lauren); his grandchildren Jonah, Sophia, Faith, Holli, Emma, Griffin, John and Liam; mother Jeannette, father-in-law Ron, sister Lynn (Jim), brother Mark (Shannon) as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
