Brian Peter Snair

                               May 14 1959 - November 14 2020

Snair, Brian Peter, 61, Truro, passed away Saturday, November 14, 2020, surrounded by his family after a short illness at the QEII Health Sciences Centre, Halifax Infirmary.  A long-time resident of Springhill, he later relocated to Truro, NS where his trade as a skilled carpenter led to him taking a position as the Manager of Maintenance at the Inn on Prince. He worked there for many years, building strong ties with his fellow workers. Brian came from a large family, and was the last surviving sibling.

He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his Mother, Bessie (Antigonish), his son and light of his life Richard (Megan), his stepchildren, Daniel and Jillian. His cherished grandbabies, Vaeh and Ayla; many nieces and nephews; aunts and uncles. He also remained close and cherished friends with his previous wife and mother of his children Bertha Harrison. They often all gathered together for holidays and events and the family shared many laughs, jokes (and arguments). Brian had innumerable friends who he loved to laugh and share a beer with.

Brian had many people waiting to welcome him from this life to the next. His father Gordon, brothers , Wayne, Frank, Paul, Mike, Shane, and Danny; sister Mary and her husband Bill, who Brian was very close to.

The family would like to thank everyone for their kind words and thoughts. A special thanks to Brian's coworkers and close friends that came together to help so much during Brian's short illness. Our gratitude also to the amazing staff at the QEII, CVICU. Anyone wishing to make a donation in Brian's memory we ask to consider the GOVRC (Golden Opportunities Vocational Rehabilitation Centre) a cause dear to Brian's heart. The family is currently in the process of planning a celebration of life to happen at a later date
