Obituary for Brian Gregory Hemming

September 11, 1957 - October 23, 2023

Sadly, we have lost our dear brother Brian (age 66) of Lake Clear, Eganville, Ontario on Monday, October 23, 2023, while doing yard work at the family cottage. Beloved son of Elisabeth Hemming of Eganville and the late Dennis Hemming of Ottawa. He has left behind seven siblings: George (Linda) of St. Catharines, ON, Robert (Janet Pearson) of Revelstoke B.C., Susan (Morley Hass) of Eganville, Monica (Peter Rorvik) of Captetown, South Africa, Christopher of Carleton Place, ON, Maryanna (John Page) of Stittsville, ON and Paul (Andrea Stallmach) of Ottawa. He is missed by many cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and other extended family.

Brian began his life in Ottawa and spent his winters skiing at Camp Fortune in Gatineau Park and his summers at Lake Clear. His love of skiing led him to Western Canada where he skied, hiked and rock climbed in the Rocky Mountains. He spent many years working at the University of Calgary and afterwards in the oil and gas industry. He lived at one point in Nelson, B.C. and Ymir B.C. before retiring at Lake Clear where he helped take care of his aging Mother. He was happiest picking mushrooms and cooking gourmet meals with his family and friends, reading, writing and exercising the art of conversation.

Professional arrangements entrusted to Zohr Family Funeral Home, Eganville. A graveside service will be held at St. Joseph's Cemetery, Esmond on Friday, October 27, 2023 at 2:00 pm.
