William Corbett Brisbin died on March 11, 2020 at the age of 89.
He was born on July 23, 1930 and lived most of his life in Winnipeg.
He was pre-deceased by his wife, Iris and his daughter, Andrea.
Bill is survived by his sister Marnie, daughter Jodie (Billy), son Michael (Charlene), son-in-law Barry, grandchildren Jenna (Phil), Taylor, Mack, and Emma. He is also survived by his great grandchildren Harper and Weston, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Bill was a kind and inspiring man who loved his family.
He was a Professor Emeritus in geology at the University of Manitoba.
Our favourite memories of Papa are: Sunday night dinners, King’s Park walks with his puppy, Mollie, exploring Carmel, California, tinkering on his old army Jeep, and stories about field school and Colorado River rafting.
At Bill’s request, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, friends may donate to a charity of their choice.
The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the caring staff at Oakview Place.
We will carry you in our hearts forever, Papa. We love you.
