Secord, Brian

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Brian Secord on Friday, July 30, 2021, at the age of 75. Missing him greatly are his partner James “Jim” Hallett, his sisters, Gerry, Barbara, Bern, Dot, and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his dear mother Leona, brothers Jim, Bill, Robert, and sisters Gert, Ruth, Doris, and Marion. Brian spent his young life in Espanola, moving to Sudbury in 1965 for business college. All his life he loved to sing, and of late, enjoyed nothing better than a good Karaoke and group Ukulele playing and singing. Another passion became backyard gardening with roses and perennials. Brian’s family would like to thank the many Health Sciences North staff of 8th floor N, the emergency department, and the paramedics that helped him during his failing health.

  1. This is very difficult to write , I saw Brian often in the emergency dept… portered him several times to 8 North and the Daffodil lodge. I saw him days before his passing and every time I walk by the hallway where we last talked makes me sad but I know he is no longer suffering .

    Rest In Peace Brian
    Keep on singing and smiling my friend
    P.S. Mr knackles is waiting

  8. Jim I just was told of Brian’s passing. I am so, so sorry. It was great to bump into the 2 of you & hear of all the things he was getting into & up to! The little Eatonian group was always supposed to get together for dinner. We didn’t & I regret that. We should still do it… but there will be an empty chair. He is entertaining a new group now!
    My condolences.

  17. I haven’t heard from Brian in such a long time. We emailed often and when I moved we lost touch. I met him during one of the elections and we worked together. We had an instant connection! I met his partner and Brian discussed some of his loves including gardening. He said we would get together on a little garden tour that never materialized. Didn’t know him well and we weren’t life long friends, but the world will be a little less bright with Brian gone. RIP
