Words cannot adequately express our profound sadness as we announce the passing of a most wonderful man, Brian Salvador, who on July 20 lost his courageous battle with AML (leukemia) at VGH.
Left to grieve is the love of his life, Judy (nee Ordog), wife of 29 years, daughter Ashley and son Kevin. Sharing in this grief is a large extended family and a very large contingent of loyal, long-term friends. Brian is pre-deceased by his parents Rose and Elidio Salvador, and recently a very special aunt and uncle, Betty Salvador and George Oliver.
Brian grew up in Creston, BC and graduated from UBC in Vancouver, class of 1971, B.Comm. He began his career at Bank of Montreal and through his career moved through various positions at Vancity, HSBC and Telus.
Brian exemplified the human part of human resources. He was warm, kind, funny, intelligent, had integrity and a strong work ethic. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word. In 2001, Brian opened his own business, Foot Solutions, in Port Coquitlam and for almost 10 years built its success through his innate caring and compassion for his customers.
Above all, Brian was a family man. He was an amazing father and husband. We love you with all our hearts, and will miss you forever. Ashley is running a marathon to honour her dad and to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society; please consider donating by going to:
