Edward James Burridge Brisbin (Known as Ted) of Calgary, AB, passed away on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at the age of 96 years.


Ted was born in Winnipeg MB on May 4, 1925. At the age of eighteen Ted joined the war effort by enlisting in the Navy and serving on the HMS Nabob aircraft carrier.


He had a long, prosperous, and happy life, although failing health limited his activities during his last few years. By his side since 1949 was his wife, Stella. They met and married in St. Vital and, after time spent in Rosetown and Yorkton, SK, permanently settled in Calgary with their daughters, Leslie, Debbie and Kim. In Calgary Ted found his niche and an outlet for his artistic talents, designing business forms and in 1971 eventually joining in partnership to establish his own company, Pro Forms Ltd. Ted and Stella enjoyed travelling, dancing, Masquerade balls, socializing with friends, golfing, painting, building miniature doll houses and spending winters in Arizona.


Besides his loving wife, Ted is survived by his daughters, Leslie (Al) Stuart, Debbie (Mike) Gavan, and Kim (Ron) Lentz; four grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
