It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our son, brother, uncle, and friend Brian Senger. Brian passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of his family and friends on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria.
Brian spent most of his adult years living in Victoria, BC. He was a resident of Jeffrey House group home for the last 26 years and the staff and clients there were like family to him. Brian loved to go on outings with his pals in the van. They visited many different places and experienced new things up and down the island. Brian had regular contact with his family in Duncan. He had a monthly visit to Duncan to see his mother, and he saw his relatives for all holidays and celebrations. Family functions will never be the same. Brian’s favourite activities always included good food and beverages. We all know how he loved his turkey legs at Thanksgiving and his daily hot chocolate! He also knew how to get cozy with some blankets and enjoy listening to music in the comfort of his easy chair. Brian’s meticulous nature allowed him to be very good at several jobs that he did with his different work crews over the years, such as, grounds keeping and cleaning in a variety of settings. Brian was well known in many different places in his community (especially Tim Hortons!).
Brian’s beautiful brown eyes will be hugely missed by his loving mother, Alice; brother, Richard (Louise); his sisters, Marie (Charlie) and Carol (Fred), many nieces and nephews, as well as his group home brothers and caregivers. Brian is predeceased by his father, Jake Senger. We are sure he was up there to greet you with a black licorice big guy! We miss you, we love you!
A Memorial Service will be held in the Sequoia Centre at McCall Gardens, 4665 Falaise Drive, Victoria BC, on Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 2:00 pm, with the Reverend Jim Lauder, officiating. A Reception will follow the Service.
