His Obituary read:
HERBERT NELSON BRIGHAM After a full and happy life, Herb passed away on Thursday, September 30, 2010 at the age of 94. He was loved by all who knew him; he was cherished for his sunny disposition and his interest in everything around him. He lived an amazing life of travel and adventure, always with the love of his life and best friend, Joanne, by his side. They were happily married for 59 years. Herb and Joanne traveled together to virtually every corner of the world, enjoying many remarkable experiences along the way. He was a warm and loving husband to Joanne (nee Howard), and an outstanding father to Heather, Matthew and Mike, father-in-law to Brent and Belle, grandfather to Ryan and Laura, and brother to Eileen Alton (late Gord) and the late Ken (Jean). We will all miss him so very much. Honoring Herb’s wishes, we will celebrate his life in an informal gathering on Monday, October 18, from 3-5 p.m. at Mississauga Golf and Country Club, 1725 Mississauga Road. We would like to acknowledge the care and compassion Dad received during his last days from his caregiver-friends at Home Instead Senior Care – thank you so much. If desired, donations in Herb’s memory may be made to The Credit Valley Hospital Foundation.
