It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Brian Norbert Levangie on October 2nd after a courageous battle with cancer. Brian was born on August 12th, 1956 to Mary and the late Norbert Levangie.
Brian spent the majority of his career working in the electrical supply industry at Harris and Roome (Graybar Canada), Sydney Branch for 34 years. Brian was very passionate about his work and loved his job. Apart from being well respected and one who made friends easily, he established many lifelong friendships during his career.
Dad was the epitome of a family man. He was our biggest supporter, unwavering in his love, guidance and advice to us (even if unsolicited). One of his most endearing qualities was his positive, upbeat attitude. It was contagious; even on the darkest days he kept us laughing. He was most happy spending time with family and friends, especially his grandsons, of whom he was so proud.
Brian is survived by his cherished children, Daniel (Jessica) Levangie, Colin (Bethany) Levangie, and Talia Levangie (Jordan Pearson); his two special grandchildren Logan and Hudson; mother Mary Levangie; brothers Billy (Debbie) Levangie and Robert (Trisha) Levangie; sister Anita (Paul) MacDonald; brother-in-law Paul Cosnick; sisters-in-law Marlene (Nelson) Thompson and Barbara Mackie (Bill Hull).
Brian was predeceased by his loving wife of 36 years, Gina Levangie; father Norbert Levangie; father and mother-in-law Melvin and Katherine Mackie; sister-in-law Kelly Cosnick.
We would like to extend our deepest appreciation and gratitude to everyone who supported Brian during this difficult time. A special thank you to Dr. Kodogoda, Dr. Saliba, Dr. Beecham, Dr. Azer, Aimee Brenna NP, along with all staff of the Cape Breton Cancer Centre and Glace Bay Hospital for your professionalism and compassionate care. Thank you is simply not enough.
Cremation has taken place at Forest Haven Memorial Gardens. There will be a private service for the immediate family.
Memorial donations can be made to the Cape Breton Cancer Centre or charity of one's choice.
