APRIL 3, 1950 - DECEMBER 25, 2018

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Brian E. Jeffrey in his 68th year on December 25, 2018 after a short illness. Brian was the devoted and loving husband of 40 years to Peggy Jeffrey. Predeceased by his parents Doreene Fester (Jeffrey) and stepfather Gordon Fester, father Edward Jeffrey and his sister Marjorie. Dear father of Patti-jo and Brian Jr. Cherished brother of Dora Watts (Richard), Ruth Jeffrey, Paul Jeffrey (Linda) and twin brother Blain Jeffrey. Fun loving uncle to his many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Born in Huntsville, Ontario Brian was an avid fisherman whose love of fishing was only surpassed by his love for his wife, family, friends and neighbors. Brian retired from Aecon Utilities in 2015 and continued to enjoy his many other passions such as early morning sun rises from his back deck while watching the deer and birds at the many feeders and bird houses he had built, as well as admiring his manicured lawns. He also had a love of vegetable gardening. Brian will be forever missed by those who knew his generous heart and his sense of humour.

Speak of me as you have always done
Remember the good times, laughter and fun
Share the happy memories we've made
Do not let them wither or fade
I'll be with you in the summer's sun
And when the winter's chill has come
I'll be the voice that whispers in the breeze
I'm peaceful now, put your mind at ease
I've rested my eyes and gone to sleep
But memories we've shared are yours to keep
Sometimes our final days may be a test
But remember me when I was at my best
Although things may not be the same
Don't be afraid to use my name
Let your sorrow last for just a while
Comfort each other and try to smile
