March 27, 1943 – June 27, 2022
Born March 27, 1943, in Duncan BC, Brian passed away in his home following a difficult battle with respiratory illness.
He was predeceased by his parents Douglas and Laurel (nee Colk) McDonald, sister Carole Ridgway and brother Walter McDonald. He is survived by his children Lori McDonald, son Allan Fleming (wife Toni and mother Anne-Marie) and sons Warren and Scott (wife Kim) McDonald and their mother Roselyn as well as his sister Miriam Fry (husband Mike).
Brian also had seven grandchildren, two great grandchildren, several nieces, and a nephew.
Early in his career, Brian worked in forestry but his love of flying was overwhelming and he ventured into a new career as a pilot. After obtaining his pilot’s license, he flew for a small airline company out of Prince George, but his true passion was flying float planes.
He became a successful bush pilot in Northern BC and piloted for Columbia and West Coast Air as well as Ted Leroy Logging.
Brian had a mischievous sense of humour and a big heart. He loved his children and grandchildren deeply and was extremely proud of each and every one of them.
Brian’s family is very thankful to the caregivers who assisted him in his final few months and to his close friends that stepped up to provide invaluable help and companionship.
The family is planning a Ceremony of Life for his final flight. Information will be provided once arrangements have been set.
