Brian Pavan

July 15, 1971 – May 18, 2021
With sadness we announce the passing of Brian Pavan July 15th 1971 – May 18th, 2021 age 49 ~ you didn’t quite make to your 50th birthday. Leaving behind his mother Lorraine Pavan, brothers Darren (Rachel), Allan (Marina), Nick and Pamela (Denis) along with many nieces and nephews!
The life choices Brian made, had made it a tough life! Brian spent most of his life in Colony farm hospital, where he had many close friendships with his peers and staff as he was known to be a quiet caring man with a gentle soul! He was passionate about his magic card collection and many of his peers shared his common interest.
He grew up in Grand Forks where he spent his younger years fishing with his grandparents Mae and Sam, hunting, working on vehicles, dirt biking and spending time at the family cabin, his most favourite place to be as well as attending college in Nelson to be a welder! He was of charismatic nature loving the farm animals and what farm life had to offer!!
He later loved his hospital visits & phone calls with his mom and his close connections with his siblings especially Allan and Pamela looking forward to a parcel full of goodies was always an overall appreciation! I’ll never forget the sparkle in his eyes when we would get a chance to visit.
Brian had a green thumb with a love of gardening!
A service was held in Coquitlam with more than 50 of Brian’s peers and staff! They had planted his plants that he started from seed around the hospital to remind them of Brian. Brian’s wishes were to dedicate his memory on their family property up the north fork!
“And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with god whatever you conceive him to be. And whatever your labor’s and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul. With all its sham drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world!”
