It is with much sadness that the family announce the passing of Brian Archibald Stephenson on September 25 at the age of 73, after a 10 month battle with cancer. He is predeceased by his parents, Bob and Vi Stephenson, and is survived by sons, Eli and Bryce Stephenson, grandson Owen, and sister Lynn Arnold (Daryl).
Born in Edmonton, AB in 1945, the family moved to Chilliwack when Brian was 3 years old. Growing up, Brian attended Chilliwack Central Elementary, Chilliwack Junior and Chilliwack Senior High Schools. Always a sports fan, he played and sometimes coached hockey in his younger years. He had a 35 year successful career with BC Hydro, spending most of that time as a surveyor, working on transmission lines, which took him all over the province. But his greatest passion was watching sports, all sports. He had his favourite teams, but liked nothing better than to cheer for the underdog.
A celebration of life will take place at a future date.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Chilliwack Hospice Society.
