Brian Forrest Carter

December 15, 1949 - July 15, 2014


     Passed away on Tuesday July 15, 2014 at the Cowichan District Hospital.  Brian will be deeply missed by his daughter Melissa (Brad) and grandchildren Alexandra and Carter, Hunter and Ryeker, Mary Jane and Dameon.  He is also survived by his sister Norma, brothers in law Grieg (Donna), Richard (Maureen) and Martin and their families.  Brian was predeceased by his wife Trudeen and by his parents Norman and Elsie Carter.  Brian will be missed by the many people whose lives he touched with his gentle, loving spirit.  His gift of music which he so freely shared was an inspiration to many.  Brian was born and raised in Duncan.  He worked for Eaton’s store, Honeymoon Bay Mill and Crofton Pulp and Paper.  He loved the Cowichan Valley and was happy to spend his whole life here.  He was a member of the A.O.T.S men’s club at Duncan United Church. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday July 19, 2014 at 2pm at Duncan United Church (246 Ingram St.), Duncan.  Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

Very sorry to hear of your loss. It was an honor to have worked with Brian for many years.

From: Denise Ryan
Relation: Friend and banker

Dear Melissa
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. I used to work for BMO, Bank of Montreal prior to my husband passing, and I knew both you Mom and Dad and I was their personal banker. I used to see both of them together in Safeway, and then only your Dad. I know how you must be feeling on this day. I moved to Langford in March, otherwise I would have attended your Dad’s service.
Please accept my sincere sympathy Melissa.

Our hearts go out to Melissa and family at this very difficult time. We all have so many wonderful memories of times spent with Brian and Trudeen over the years. It was a fitting tribute to Brian to see so many friends at the service today. Brian was loved and most certainly will be missed. Rest in peace.
Love, Uncle Martin, Auntie Heather, Scott (Jenn & baby Cortana) and Tracy (Jason) XOXOX

Relation: friend

We are very sorry for your loss, he was an awesome guy, we were better people for having the privilege of knowing him. I still remember being on stage with Brian and Andy at Cow. High for the Dating Game back in 1967. Brian will be missed. Take Care Chris & Wendy

From: Linda & Kees Hof & family
Relation: former Cowichan Valley residents

To Melissa, Norma and families: Many years ago Brian and I were the ‘youth reps’ on the Search Committee who called Jim Ware to Duncan United. We have wonderful memories of the Carter family at DUC, more later when Brian and Trudeen married. Brian lit up when talking of his grandchildren. And we know he’s still singing in the choir, accompanied by his mom. Our best to you all.

From: Kevin McCauley
Relation: Friend of Family

He was a very good man and one of my mother’s all time favorite friends of our family
RIP big man
