In Memory

Brian Fiddler (April 15/18)

Dear Classmates, Sorry for the lateness, but I just found out today when I returned from holidays. It is with a heavy heart that I send this email. Our wonderful friend, Brian Fiddler has passed away and I have attached his obituary below. Brian and I first met in Kindergarten and had many fun adventures with our group of friends through to Grade 7. I last saw Brian, in line at a bank and we talked for about an hour. He made me laugh, smile and cry. Reunions just won't be the same without Brian's wonderful sense of humour and quick wit ... RIP dear friend.



Brian Fiddler Nov. 14, 1961 - Apr. 15, 2018 Brian Richard Fiddler, CPA Brian left us April 15, 2018 after a heroic 4-yr battle with cancer. He faced each day with his amazing positive attitude and razor-sharp wit. Brian is survived by his soul-mate of 23 years Meighan, his four children he was so proud of, Bryce (Nathalie), Sydney (Geoff), Piper and Peter, his granddaughter Emerson and soon to arrive grandson Jack. He will be missed by his mother Anne, brothers Peter, Larry (Jackie), Keith and sister Barb. He was pre-deceased by his father Sidney. Brian was a family man. He was a friend. He could light up a room with humour and 'sick' dance moves. He was wise and always knew what to do. Brian was selfless when it came to family and friends. He was a hockey player, baseball player and soccer player. But mostly a hockey and baseball player because of the beer rather than the laps. His kids grew up knowing he was the real Spiderman. His skin couldn't be pierced and he could leap across Canada. If there is a heaven, there is a new sheriff in town and he'll be mixing it up. Our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Margery Zapf Gilje, Dr. Sasha Smiljanic and all the wonderful nurses at the Lion's Gate oncology centre. We also wish to thank Dr. Chan and the nurses at homecare, and the compassionate doctors and nurses at Burnaby General Hospital palliative care. A celebration of Brian's life will be held at the Centennial Lodge, Queen's Park, New Westminster, April 27, 2018 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm with the program beginning at 4:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in loving memory of Brian Fiddler to Pancreatic Cancer Canada or a charity of your choice. Published in Vancouver Sun and/or The Province on Apr. 21, 2018
