It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Brian Joseph Luini of Hillcrest Mines, Alberta who succumbed to his illness on February 12, 2021 while receiving care at the Crowsnest Pass Hospital. Brian was blessed with 73 years of a full and wonderful life.
Brian was born on December 17, 1947 in Blairmore, Alberta to parents, Guiseppe and Genevieve Luini. He was raised with an appreciation for the outdoors and its rugged beauty. He obtained his Surveyor’s Certificate and gained employment with various oil and gas as well as construction companies. He was talented at trapping and enjoyed time spent with family and friends on his trapline and was a member of the Alberta Trapper’s Association. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing and every moment spent outdoors but his greatest love in life was his beloved Cindy. A lovely and gentle lady, Cynthia Liska, won the heart of Brian and they pledged their love in marriage on July 6, 1991. They delightedly spent as much time together as possible and Cindy, also a talented surveyor, worked and traveled with Brian for many years. In 2017, after a long illness Cindy passed away with Brian taking care of her and never leaving her side. Our only comfort in losing Brian is knowing that he is now walking hand in hand with his beloved Cindy in heaven. Although he is gone from our eyes, he will remain forever in our hearts.
He is survived by his brothers, Charlie (Leona) Luini and Harold Luini; his sister, Peggy (Pat) Pow; his stepbrother, Dave (Eva) Welsh; his in-laws, Steve and Pat Liska and Craig (Kim) Liska; numerous nieces and nephews and the many friends he made throughout his lifetime. He was predeceased by his beloved, Cynthia Luini; his parents, Guiseppe and Genevieve Luini/Welsh; his brother, Garry Luini; his nephew, Joe Luini; and his step-father, David Welsh.
A private family visitation and prayers were held at Fantin’s Funeral Chapel with a graveside service to be held at a later date. Donations may be directed towards the Alberta Trappers Assoc. and condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
