It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Creighton Brisco. Our beloved husband and father died suddenly at the age of 66 in QEII Health Sciences Centre, Halifax. Born in Winnipeg and raised in Ottawa, he was a son of Howard Creighton and Agnes (Paterson) Brisco. He graduated from Dalhousie University with an honours degree in Geology and a Bachelors degree in Education, and from the Technical University of Nova Scotia with a Masters degree in Urban Planning. Creighton recently retired from the Nova Scotia Provincial Government after 33 years of service, having worked for both the Nova Scotia Department of Environment and Intergovernmental Affairs. Creighton retired to pursue his passions for sailing, travelling and skiing. He had an enormous zest for life. He was a loving husband and father who was dedicated to his family. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him and whose lives he touched. Surviving are his loving wife, Valerie Jane (Murphy); sons, Dawson, Brendan and Trevor and his loving sister, Patricia Lametti, Ontario. The visitation will be held in J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor St., today from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Funeral service will be held Tuesday, March 17, at 11 a.m. in First Baptist Church, 1300 Oxford St. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia.
