DANIELS, Brian George - It is with profound grief and sorrow that the family announces the death of Brian on January 6, 2021.

He leaves his heartbroken wife Terri and, sons Jeremy in Australia and Nick (Sue) in Sutton, ON, grandchildren Elliott, Jonah, Amos, Rachael, Hannah and Chloe.  And a great grandson born in Australia on Jan 10. 

Brian was born July 20, 1941 in Enfield, England to Lillian and George. 

His sister Maureen Hearne predeceased him. His childhood friend and “partner in crime” Peter, passed years ago. 

He moved to Canada in 1974 with his first wife Frances and sons, Jeremy and Nick where he was national claims manager for Ecclesiastical Insurance.  

Brian endured a difficult year of poor health in 2020 and spent many months at Markham Stouffville Hospital.  His care in 1C was nothing less than kindness and compassion.  Many thanks are sent to all the staff and nurses there, and to Dr. Solow, who never gave up on him. 

Terri, Jeremy and Nick are devastated that they were unable to be with him to say goodbye but he will be in their memories and hearts forever.

In trying to find a way to say goodbye and to honour this good and gentle person, a tree will be planted at Mill Run Golf Club – a place where he laughed and enjoyed friendships. 

Circumstances permitting, a celebration will be held there in the spring or summer where we can be physically distanced but socially and emotionally together.

Brian loved the little old fur dragons they brought into their home. If Terri told him of a senior cat in need, his response was always “What’s one more? Go get him.” He was a longtime supporter of a small animal rescue/sanctuary known as Thomas the Silver Tabby. 

For anyone wishing to make a memorial donation, please go to Animal Aid & Adoption https://www.animalaidandadoption.com/.  They will direct the funds to Thomas the Silver Tabby.

May God bless him and May he Rest in Peace.
