Brian Lawrence Latimer of Medicine Hat, husband to Millie Latimer, passed away in Medicine Hat on Monday, November 29, 2021, at the age of 78 years. He leaves behind his two children, Brad and Shannon; two fantastic grandkids, Talyn and Braden; three brothers, Wayne, Garth and Dale as well as his sister, Faye Douglas. He was predeceased by his parents, Charles and Ruth Latimer. Brian was born on October 30, 1943, in Oxbow Saskatchewan and married Millie on January 11, 1969. He worked with many great people in the oil and gas industry over the years and continued working at Eskimo, Dresser/ Titan services with his last 18 years being self-employed. He retired in 1997, at the age of 54. Brian leaves behind some great friends and golfing buddies, who he thoroughly enjoyed driving nuts, griping his way around a typical 77 at his second home, the Medicine Hat Golf and Country Club. There he made many life-long friends including the staff who were like family to him. He was always a “family first” type of guy but on the course, he enjoyed cleaning his son out, repeatedly, when they played. Brian truly loved taking care of everyone and saying he thought the world of his daughter, Shannon, would be an understatement, their bond was something to envy. Having grandkids gave a new purpose to his retirement; between their swimming lessons, bike riding, ice skating, snow skiing, rodeos and taking them on memorable trips to Phoenix and Vegas; he experienced some of the best moments he ever had. Brian and Millie had piles of adventures in the desert as well, going from course to course. They enjoyed the golf, the time with their friends and those hard-fought grudge matches they played against one another for “pride.” He often called Millie a saint for not only keeping many of these outcomes quiet, but for her ability to go with his spontaneity that he so liked to follow; his respect and love for Millie never wavered. He was truly old school, fiercely loyal and unwavering in his ability to call it like he saw it. Brian dearly missed his friends that left us too soon and always reminisced about their old times much like we will do with ‘Pops.’ Not enough can be said for the great care and compassion the entire family received from the Palliative Care nurses and our friends at Cook Southland Funeral Chapel.

One Condolence for “BRIAN LATIMER”

  1. Norma (Amos) Asp says:

    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss, Millie and family. I hadn’t seen Brian since high school in Carnduff but I’ve heard he was well respected in the oil patch and I was impressed by an online letter he wrote about global warming. From reading his obituary I imagine he has left a big hole in all your lives and I trust your wonderful memories will bring you solace.
