Brian Illingworth

1924 – 2019

We are saddened to announce the passing of our father, Brian Illingworth, on January 8, 2019, at the age of 94. He lived a long and full life. Brian and our mother, Betty, owned and operated Spic and Span Dry Cleaners for 56 years. Brian loved to talk, had an incredible sense of humour and was a voracious reader. He donated countless hours to his scout troop, taking them camping all year long and teaching them valuable life skills. He was recognized by Canadian Blood Services for his regular blood donations. Dad is survived by his son, Phil (Janet) of Victoria; daughter, Terri of Calgary; 8 grand-children and 2 great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife of 72 years, Betty. Our thanks go to our incredible neighbours, Alma and Charlie Berridge and Bryan Walkey. They enabled our parents to stay in their home and continued to care for them after they moved. We would also like to thank the staff at St. Michael’s Community Support Bed unit, at Edith Cavell Care Centre and at Chinook Regional Hospital for their caring and kindness. A Celebration of Life will be held later this year. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made in Brian’s name to Boy Scouts of Canada – Camp Impeesa, at tributelegacygiving.
