Brian Graham Annis passed away January 12, 2013 peacefully at home. Born in Burnaby, Brian lived in Chilliwack most of his life, growing up playing hockey, Jr. A and WHL. He was the tough guy. He worked with his father and mother at Annis Pools for many years, tough work but enjoyed the sun. Since then he worked in fire protection and construction of many types. Most recently M&M Excavating, the guys will miss ‘Dad’. His vast knowledge made him indispensable in always getting things right. He was well respected in the community. He will be greatly missed by his entire family but especially his ‘Girls’ , wife Samantha Annis (Hughes), step mom Audree Annis, daughters Melissa Annis, Nicole Annis and Devan Annis and his five beautiful grandchildren Madison Harvey, Aiden Harvey, Kayel McLean, River McLean and Kaitlyn Brown. He’s predeceased by his father Graham Annis and his mother Evelyn Annis (Watmough). He had a great many friends over the years, the kind of guy who would give you his shirt off his back if you needed it. All are welcome to attend a ‘Celebration of Life’ for Brian at the Masonic Hall, 45905 Hocking Avenue, Chilliwack on Sunday January 27, 2013 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
