November 15, 1948 – April 3, 2021
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Brian Donnelly Craig. Brian was born November 15, 1948 in Duncan B.C. and passed away April 3, 2021 in Quesnel after a courageous struggle with Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Brian is survived by Mary, the love of his life for 53 years and lovingly remembered by daughters Donna (Troy) and Lorinda; grandchildren Victoria (Zach), Emily (Brian), Megan (Sam), Brandon, and great granddaughter Mackenzie. He will be forever in the hearts of his sisters Patsy and Trellis (Ashley), sister-in-law Penny, brothers Kerry (Penny) and Lyle, and many nieces and nephews. He will be remembered by numerous long-time friends.
Brian is predeceased by his mother Dorothy (Edward) and father Bill; twin brother Brent and brother Gene.
Moving his family to Quesnel in 1972, Brian spent most of his working career at Cariboo Pulp and Paper until his retirement in 2013. For many years he was an active member of the Masonic Lodge in Barkerville, rising to the position of Worshipful Master.
Brian was a gentleman, steadfast and true, well-respected, and so loved.
There will be no service by request. Following covid, the family will gather together.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Brian’s name to the BC Lung Association 2675 Oak St. Vancouver, B.C. V6H 2K2.
“We watch him leave our shores and lament as he disappears over the horizon – but out of sight, there are those gathered on a far-off shore, rejoicing shouting: “Here he comes!”
