T. Brian Trower

October 31, 1944 - May 16, 2022

Obituary

Brian [Terence] Trower passed away peacefully on May 16, 2022 with his wife at his side.  Brian was born October 31, 1944 in London, Ontario and after a visit in the early 70s, he fell in love with Penticton, packed up and relocated. Thirty-six years ago, Brian met the love of his life Susan and they did everything together, including travelling the world. Brian loved the beach, travelling and adventures (including a few years of ostrich farming), cooking amazing meals for family and friends if he wasn’t eating out, long walks with his furry sidekick, loud music and a sing along. Brian will be missed by so many and remembered for his quick wit, generosity, and passion for life.

Brian is survived by his daughter Brandee [Brian], son Munroe and granddaughter Haylee [Shawn], sisters Lynne [Ray], Lauri [Paul], and brother Tim [Deb], his aunt Marg, nieces, nephews, cousins, a gang of Hoffmans and extended family.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Penticton Salvation Army Food Bank (https://pentictonsa.ca/give), his favourite charity. To celebrate a life well lived, you are invited to join family and friends at the Copper Mug on June 19th from 4:00 to 6:00 where food bank donations will also be accepted. Brian was passionate about COVID vaccinations and the science surrounding the vaccine. The family respectfully requests that only those who are vaccinated attend Brian’s celebration of life (Note: the Mug is open to all regardless of vaccination status)

Brian was a great man and a wonderful friend. Throughout our friendship of 45 years, we had seen each other one and off but every time we got together he made it feel like it was just like yesterday. I will miss him very much and he will be missed by a multitude of people who knew him. My Condolence to Susan, Brandee and the rest of his loving family. RIP Benny.

Relation: Worked in the same school.

I was so very sorry to hear of Brian’s passing. I enjoyed my chats with him ( even about glitter!) and appreciated his compassion very much. After his retirement, I often saw him out walking the dog on my way to work and we would share a quick wave. Thinking of your family at this time.

Dear Susan,

My deepest condolences for the loss of Brian. He was a kind and welcoming member of the SESS community when I was just starting out as a teacher in Keremeos. I enjoyed so many laughs with him and he was always quick to offer a kind and encouraging word. He was a wonderful man.

Sue, I was so sorry to hear of Brian’s passing. My heart breaks for you.

From: Pati Aoki
Relation: Friend

Dear Susan and family,
Our deepest condolences.
I knew Brian from the copper mug days. I worked at Super Valu and after a tough shift a few employees would slip over for a cold drink and a gab session. Brian was always a happy, social engaging part of our outing.
Years later, Brian and I found ourselves both working for the school district and we would have a lovely chat in the halls about all sorts of wild and random stuff.
The last few years, seeing Brian and his faithful furry friend out walking, As we were both out getting some exercise always meant a visit for a while, once again chatting about everything and nothing.
My heart hurts for you all.
A great guy, he will be missed.
Deepest sympathy
The Aoki family
