GAINE, Brian Kenneth

(April 15, 1960 – May 30, 2015)

The family is sad to say that, after a brief battle with cancer, Brian has left us, hopefully to a better place. Many thanks to the kind and wonderful staff at Fraser Canyon Hospital for their care of Brian these last few weeks, it was appreciated. Brian was born in Edmonton, but moved to Hope as a young child in 1966. Brian grew up here and had a unique love of the town. He loved sports and in his teens and twenties you would often find him at the baseball diamond with his group of friends. He moved around to Edmonton, Kelowna and New West but always found his way home to Hope. A train accident in 2008 resulted with him loosing his legs, but you would often see him wheeling around Hope, rain or shine.

He will be missed by his mother Florence Hagerman, his daughter Jenna (Jeff) Carter, his siblings Sharon Lundgren, George Gaine, Cliff (Kelly) Gaine, and Sandy (Mark) Willey, and numerous nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles and cousins. Memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, June 6, 2015 at the Chapel of Hope, 1270 Ryder St, Hope BC. In lieu of flowers, donations are encouraged to the Hope Hospice Society.
