Brian Hideaki Hashimoto
May 29, 1963 – Dec. 14, 2012
It is with the saddest of hearts that the family of Brian Hashimoto announces his sudden and unexpected passing on December 14, 2012 in Kitimat, B.C.
Left to mourn his loss and cherish his loving memory are his parents Kunio and Reiko of Revelstoke, B.C., his brother Raymond (Ana) of Hinton, Alberta, nieces Laura and Hannah, nephew Christopher, a host of relatives, colleagues, students, and dear friends.
Brian was born and raised in Revelstoke, B.C. and then went on to graduate from the University of British Columbia with a teaching degree. He received a position at Mount Elizabeth Secondary School in Kitimat, B.C. in 1988 where he ardently and creatively taught mathematics until the time of his passing. His favourite pastimes included playing hockey (goalie), softball, poker, and cheering on the Toronto Maple Leafs.
A Memorial service was held on December 19, 2012 at 1:30 p.m. at the Christ the King Parish in Kitimat, B.C. with Fr. Kenneth Umaowa as Celebrant.
The family is very grateful for the compassion and kind support of Brian’s friends and neighbours, the staff and students of Mount Elizabeth Secondary School, the nurses and staff of the Palliative Care Unit of Kitimat General Hospital, and Christ the King Parish. And a special thank you to the Horianopoulos family for opening their hearts and homes to Brian and his family.
In lieu of other tributes, donations may be made to the Kitimat General Hospital – Palliative Care Unit in Brian’s memory or to the Brian Hashimoto Memorial Scholarship Fund at Envision Financial – Kitimat Branch.
