Brian was predeceased by his son Darryl in 2013 and by his sister, Karen Molnar, in 2017. He is survived by his partner, Gail Seigel, daughter Marilyn (Loretta), brother Jack Chrisp (Sue), sister Channa Senyk (Garry), brother-in-law, Steve Molnar, grandchildren Josh, Johneah, Jayla and their mother Darlene, grandchildren Jonathan and Chantal Wilson and many nieces and nephews.

Brian was born in Lowick, Northumberland, England and came to Canada in his early teens. He worked in the Zinc Plant until his retirement in 1997. Brian loved hunting, fishing, curling and his sled dogs. After his health prevented him from doing these activities, he enjoyed playing bridge, his flower gardens and creating wonderful cross-stitch creations which will be cherished by his family. Brian also spent hundreds of hours building different types of R/C model aircraft which he enjoyed flying.
In keeping with Brian’s wishes, cremation has taken place with a private family service at a later date.
Should friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Northern Neighbours Foundation, PO Box 802, Flin Flon, MB R8A 1N6.
