Brian Richard Audet

Brian Richard Audet: July 22, 1969 — October 10, 2003.

On October 10, 2003, Brian went to be with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Brian passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home.

He is survived by daughters Jordann, 12, and Teddy, 10, Audet of Prince George, parents Rick and Betty of Williams Lake and sister Lori Audet of Edmonton.

Brian will be sadly missed by his family, his church family of First Baptist Church, relatives, friends and acquaintances from across Canada.

Born and raised in Ontario, Brian spent his adult life working and making his home in Western Canada.

In 1989 he married Barbara Barnes and the couple moved to Calgary where Jordann was born in 1991. A second daughter, Teddy, was born in Chilliwack in 1993.

Brian worked largely in the lumber yard trade, however, he also was a heavy equipment operator and managed and maintained a high rise apartment building in Edmonton.

Due to complications from juvenile diabetes which he was diagnosed with at age 12, Brian gradually began losing his sight, and was legally blind for the last four years of his life.

He was enrolled at the University College of the Cariboo and was working towards a degree in social work at the time of his death.

After moving to Williams Lake in December 2001 he became involved in the community through volunteering at the SPCA as a dog walker, and most recently he was a very dedicated and valued counsellor with the Crisis Line.

Despite the hardships in his life, Brian will be remembered by all who knew him as a cheerful man.

He cherished spending time with his daughters, family members and friends. He was humorous, intelligent, loved the outdoors and had an appreciation for languages.

Brian attended First Baptist Church where he was warmly welcomed into the church family and became a member in May 2003. He was growing in the grace and knowledge of his Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.

He will be missed, and he will be fondly remembered because of the way he touched many lives.

His family truly appreciates the outpouring of love and care through heartfelt phone calls, visits, food, flowers, cards and gifts.

We sincerely thank you all for your kindness and support.
