Obituary for Brian Harold Gould

Brian Harold Gould
April 3, 1943 – November 5, 2022

Our beloved Brian passed away peacefully on November 5 at the age of 79 in Kitchener, the city of his birth.
Brian’s spirit for adventure, athletics, and the arts began at an early age. He travelled around the globe and shared his passion for seeing the world with his wife of 57 years, Leslie Ann Schildroth. As a natural athlete, Brian started as a sprinter and hockey player, and then added golfing, curling, cross country skiing, and tennis over the years. He transferred this love for sports to coaching and cheering on his children and grandchildren in their myriad of interests. We are grateful that Brian took the time to document all these adventures and special memories through his photography. He had a great eye for composition and capturing the spirit of the occasion.

Brian had a long and successful career in residential and commercial real estate and served his community for many years through the Kitchener-Conestoga Rotary Club. He was a long-time member of Westmount Golf and Country Club and K-W Senior Gyro Club. Brian took special pleasure in bringing together family and friends for great food and conversation.

Brian will be deeply missed by his wife, Leslie, and his brothers Lionel Gould and Edward Gould and was loved by his parents Harold and Ruth Gould. Brian is lovingly remembered by his children David (Melissa) and Jennifer (David) and his grandchildren Eleena, Kaylie, Faith, Tavie, Liam, and Chase all of whom will miss their quick-to-laugh Papa.

At heart, Brian was a gentle, humorous soul. His family and friends will hold him dear in their hearts forever. The family is planning a visitation at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener, 519-749-8467, on Thursday, November 10, 2022 from 5-8 p.m. A private family burial will take place at Parkview Cemetery.

As expressions of sympathy, donations in his memory can be made to the Grand River Hospital Foundation (cards available at the funeral home).
