Condolence: My sincer condolences to the family. A true mentor to us young aspiring men. I learnt to test overhead light sockets with my finger and the sentence "good enough for the girls we go out with" will always remind me of him. I am very sorry, he was a great teacher. Chris Barnes. Lindsay and now ottawa.
Condolence: So sorry to hear your sad news. We are in Nova Scotia for most of the winter and just received news of briens passing. Such a good person, and good memories. Our condolences to all the family.
Condolence: I am sorry to hear of Brien's death. I remember him as a tall quiet gentleman who exuded a sense of presence.
I regret also that I was not present at his funeral to be able to express this in person, but the schedule required that I be out of town on Saturday.
You are both in my thoughts.
I was so sorry to hear of Brien's passing and I am sending my deepest sympathies to you and your family. I remember Brien with fondness and with a smile. He and I shared many a conversation and many chuckles in the business office at I. E. Weldon. I know he will be missed by family and the many students and colleagues he leaves behind.
Condolence: Dear Jeannine and Family, Please accept our deepest sympathies on your loss of a special husband, father, Granpa, and educator. Brien will be remembered as a wonderful, caring teaching colleague. We shared many laughs and good times in the Electrical Shop and The Tech Hallway at I. E. Weldon. Former colleagues and students appreciated his off-beat sense of humour and playful nature. Sincerely, Ron and Marilas McInnis
Condolence: My condolences to the family. I am one of the students that made the trip back to Weldon to visit Mr. McDonagh. I always enjoyed that about his electricity class. He was a great teacher and friend.
Condolence: Dear Jeanine and Family
So sorry to hear of the passing of Brian. During my early years at Weldon I always marvelled at the number of students that had graduated but made time to come back and see Mr. McDonagh and thank him for starting them down the path of their trade or profession. He was passionate about his subject and wanted to help kids in his own quiet way. He was a great colleague and friend and he will be missed. I'm sorry I won't be able to attend the service.
