We regret to announce the sudden passing of Brian Arnold Fisher, a long-time resident of Vernon, at the age of only 57 years. Brian passed away in Victoria’s Jubilee Hospital March 20th, 2004. He was born in Winnipeg and raised in various centers around BC. Brian spent several years in the Canadian Army before settling in Cranbrook. He will be greatly missed by his wife Sharon, their daughter Teri (Kyle), son Michael (Brittany), three grandchildren Jenna, Brittany and Emma and his mother, Irene Fisher, and many friends in the community. Brian was predeceased by a son Marc in 1972 and his father Arthur Fisher in 2002. Brian is also survived by a brother, Bruce Fisher, three nephews, Chase, Mason, and Hayden plus numerous uncles, aunts and cousins. Brian was employed by Watkin Motors for the past 24 years.
