Willis, Brian A., age 76, of Tracadie, passed away in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish on October 12, 2020.

Born in Northern Ireland, he was the son of the late Ambrose and Dorothy Jean (Boyle) Willis.

Brian spent his early years in Northern Ireland as an electrical engineer.  He immigrated to Ontario in 1974.  The main part of his career was spent in drafting and design.  He was the most beloved husband of Roberta, devoted father of Karen and was delighted to welcome his new son in law Travais to the family.  Brian brought great joy to all their lives.  They will sorely miss his crazy sense of humor, his generosity, and his kindness.  He was special and they will love him forever.

He is also survived by his brother Neal (Margaret) Willis, niece, Heather and nephew, Barry of Northern Ireland.  Brian also leaves behind his adopted, loving family of friends from Ontario, Bob and Karen, Anne and John, Geraldine and Rene and their families.

Special thanks to Dr. Jane Howard, Palliative Care Nurses at St. Martha’s and VON of Antigonish.

A private funeral service will be held in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish on Thursday with Reverend Sue Channen presiding.  Cremation to follow.  A livestream link to the service will be available on this website at 10:00 am.  Online condolences

I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
    he delivered me from all my fears.
