Obituary for Brian Adamson

Brian Adamson
March 12, 1950 – January 10, 2024

It is with great sadness we announce that Brian Adamson of Calgary, Alberta, passed away on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, at the age of 73 years.

Brian was the loving father of James Adamson (Debbie), Jason Adamson (Na Rae) and Barbara-Lynn Adamson (Julio); loving grandfather of Emily, Jonathon, Dylan, Claire and Donna; brother of Gail, Debbie, Janet, Laura, Billy and David. Brian was a friend to many in this world.

He was predeceased by son, Nathan Adamson; and sister, Diane Hooper.

Anyone who knew Brian would have been in for a good laugh. He enjoyed life fully with adventures to the Yukon for some sour toe, spending days and nights at sea on the HMCS Huron, rocking up front at the Rolling Stones concert and many more travels across the country, and around the world, meeting new people and making new friends.

Brian enjoyed the art of photography and received countless compliments and recognition, including displayed art in galleries around the world and magazine features. He had a love for music, sports, and especially the Toronto Blue Jays.

Brian loved his children and their families deeply. The best times in his life were spent with them making memories whether simply at a baseball game or driving endless hours in the car with bluegrass playing. His legacy will live on through them.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or The Foundation for Seniors’ Care – Hearts of Excellence.

A Celebration of Brian’s Life will be held in late Spring / early Summer. Service details will be updated once confirmed.
