It is with great sadness, that the family of Mr. Brian William Ladell announce he passed away peacefully, into the arms of Jesus, on Saturday, July 18, 2020 at the age of 71 years. Brian struggled with FTD for many years. He was a loving husband, father, son, friend and mentor. Brian was born on September 15, 1948 in Edmonton, Alberta, and lived his younger years in Saskatchewan, before returning to Alberta in 1968. Brian and Iris married in 1969, moved to Red Deer and has resided here ever since. Brian was a Chartered Accountant in Red Deer for over thirty years, retiring as a Senior Partner with Collins Barrow, in 2002. He worked in various positions with Habitat for Humanity and did consulting with the Alberta Government, with his good friend, Harold Johnsrude. Brian will be lovingly remembered by his soulmate of over fifty years, Iris; his daughters, Cari (Mike) Kohlman and Kristen Ladell-England and will be forever cherished by his grandchildren, Bailey Ladell-England (Aaron), Chase England, Brittany Kohlman and Ryan Kohlman. He will also be sadly missed by his sisters, Lynne Totten and Constance (David) Ladell; his father-in-law, Nick Fedun and a very large extended family, as well as his little pup, Allie. Brian was predeceased by a son, Scott; his parents, Syd and Joyce Ladell; his mother-in-law, Adeline Fedun; his brothers-in-law, Jim Chrystian and Jim Totten and a sister-in-law, Linda Fedun. With grateful hearts, we would like to thank the staff at Timberstone Mews and Michener Extendicare for taking such great care of Dad. A Private Family Service will be held at CrossRoads Church, with livestreaming available for the public on Tuesday, August 18, 2020.

Iris, we want to send our condolences to you and express to you the great respect and admiration we have for both you and Brian and the contributions you have made to the lives of so many through your generosity and encouragement. Doris remembers Brian attending the first debate that Victor participated in, in his foray into politics. Brian sat there cringing as Victor stumbled his way through some of the questions ... but he still managed to be encouraging and supportive after it was over. May you and your family feel the close presence of God at this time. Victor and Doris Doerksen

We attended St Leonard's with Brian and Iris. Our daughter Lena-Joy had Brian as a Sunday school teacher. He was very caring with all his classs and believed in sharing and caring through your faith out in the community. She will always remember him taking them out to the Food Bank and various charities to volunteer. We will all remember him fondly. Sending hugs and prayers of peace to Iris and all your family. Brian, Janice, Conlan and Lena-Joy Besner

My sincere sympathies in the loss of Brian. I met Brian when he came to the Board of the Piper Creek Foundation. I always enjoyed his stories from the missions he and his wife experienced. The one that stuck was when they went to assist with a daycare and found themselves left running everything, just the two of them. While he was able to look back on it and laugh, he was quick to tell us it wasn't a real eyeopener!
