Brian Lane Wetherill passed away with his family by his side at the Brandon Regional Hospital on Monday, November 1st, 2021.
Brian had a tremendous impact on each and every person that was fortunate to meet him. There was not a person that had ever met Brian that could say he didn’t leave a lasting impression. His quick wit and spry sense of humor were well known by his family, friends and caregivers.
Brian grew up on a small farm in Riding Mountain where he began his love for animals which continued throughout his life most notably with his dog, Rex. He also loved to hunt and fish which would continue to be lifelong hobby right up until the day he passed. Brain was a skilled carpenter that could manufacture everything from a pair of glasses to brand new home. He took so much pride in all of his work; especially when one of his children were helping him create a masterpiece.
Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 49 years, Sandra (Onisimchuk); his beloved children that he was so proud of; Clint (Kay), Kirk (Nicole), and Amber (Eric); his grandchildren Kalle, Matti and Alexis (Wetherill), Kail and Tucker (Hilstrom);his brothers Doug (Jane) Wetherill and Jim Wetherill; Brother-in-law Archie (Lynn) Onisimichuk; Sister-in-laws, Deanna (Wilf) Klassen, Sylvia (Rick) Wilson and Vera (Will) Kolesar; as well as many nieces and nephews.
