2 Condolences for “PENROSE”

  1. Steve Daniel says:

    It was with deep sorrow that I read about Brian’s passing. He was a kind soul and wonderful friend.

  2. Bob Wyllie says:

    Very sad to hear of “Pen”’s passing. Brian was a very amusing fellow who I first met in the 1970s when we were residents at the Lister Hall student residence at the University of Alberta. We spent many hours over the next several years playing sports with the Lonestars and enjoying many live music opportunities all fueled by appropriate libations. We were lucky to get to meet Brian’s younger brother John who was known to all as “young” Pen. My sincerest condolences go out to all his family and loved ones. We have surely lost a true character.
