Brian Goerzen, beloved husband of Susan Goerzen of Calgary, AB, passed away on Thursday, April 13, 2017 at the age of 52 years. Brian worked as a courier for thirty years with Schlumberger of Canada, and then moved on to be a field technician within the same company. He had a passion for boating and believed that everyone should own and enjoy a boat within their lifetime; he influenced and encouraged many of his friends to get into boating. Brian spent a lot of time at Christina Lake with his family, dogs, and friends. He also loved being involved with his kids; coaching his son’s hockey team, as well as both his son and daughters’ community soccer teams. Brian is survived by his wife Susan Goerzen; his children Melissa and Bryce; parents Marilyn and Leonhard Goerzen; his brother and sister-in-law Barry and Lori Goerzen, and their daughter Maya; sister-in-law Debbie, her husband Ken Coakwell, and their sons Jamie, Matthew and Kyle; his best friend Glenn Marsh; as well as his dogs Trapper and Cricket. We wish to thank the caring and supportive staff at the Dulcina Hospice for the exceptional care they gave Brian.
