Sadly we announce the passing of a beloved husband, loving father and very proud Grandpa.  Husband and best friend for 42 years of Annette (O’Donnell). Loving father of Andrea Thibault (Christian) and Sean (Monique Gilby). Adoring and devoted Grandpa of Henry, Hannah and Duke. Brian is survived by his mother, Amelia Sabourin.

Dear brother-in-law of Maureen O’Donnell (Al Lenis), Kathleen, Kevin, Terry, Brian and Eamon (Elaine) O’Donnell. Uncle Brian, ‘Sabi’, will be dearly missed by many nieces, nephews and their children. Brian retired from Ford Oakville after 30 years. Following that, he enjoyed marshalling at Copetown Woods Golf Course, golfing with the Dundas Valley Retirees Golf Association in Cambridge, curling at the Dundas Granite Club and learning to dance with the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society. A heartfelt thank you to the JCC staff especially Dr. Dhesy-Thind, the nurses on the Chemo Unit and all the wonderful support staff who Brian considered part of his family over the past 7 years.  A special thank you to Dr. Beverly Hattersley, the nurses and staff at St. Peter’s Hospital, and to Dr. Angelo Zizzo for his ongoing support. In lieu of flowers, donations to Juravinski Cancer Centre in memory of Brian would be appreciated. Friends will be received by the family on Wednesday afternoon and evening from 2-4 & 6-9 p.m. at the Cattel, Eaton & Chambers Funeral Home, 53  Main Street, Dundas.  A Funeral Mass will be held at ST. AUGUSTINE’S PARISH, 58 Sydenham Street, Dundas on Thursday at 11 a.m. A private interment will take place at St. Augustine Cemetery in Dundas, following cremation at a later date.

A silent thought
A quiet prayer
For a special person
In God’s care
