In Memoriam - Brian Findlay

We are saddened to announce the death of Brian on July 25th, 2016 in Victoria. Brian is survived by his wife Susan, daughter Julie, son Eric, and 3 grandchildren.


Brian began his career in the purchasing department with Andrew Sheret Limited in 1965. During his fifty years with Andrew Sheret Limited, Brian established the data purchasing department before becoming General Manager, and ultimately President. He served as President from 1992 until his retirement last year. Brian was instrumental in leading the company through years of steady growth in British Columbia, and helped establish Frontier Supply in Western Canada. Brian was most proud of establishing the employee share participation program within Andrew Sheret Limited, and the recent completion of the new company head office and Victoria branch.


Brian co-founded Canaplus Limited Partnership, a national buying group of independent Canadian wholesalers, of which he served as President for many years. Brian was an active supporter of local arts and charitable organizations, including a thirty-five year membership with the Victoria Rotary Club. He was always an advocate for improving and strengthening the plumbing and heating industry, and above all else, believed in being fair to all.


Details of a memorial service will be announced in the coming days.
