Heffernan, Brian Patrick
February 23, 1957 - June 24, 2020

It is with very sad hearts that we announce the passing of Brian Patrick Heffernan after a brief illness at the age of 63 on June 24, 2020. Loving husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle and dear friend.

Predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Veronica Heffernan (LeSarge)

Brian will be forever missed by his cherished wife and best friend of 36 wonderful years Maureen Heffernan (McKee). Loving father to Shannon Young (Ryan), Katie Heffernan and very proud Grandpa to his sweet Addison (Addy).

Brian is survived by his loving siblings, Catherine Campbell (Ron), David Heffernan (Eileen), Chris Heffernan, Greg Heffernan and Cindy Schuster (Rudy) and many loving nieces and nephews.

Brian was a true family man, he loved and would do anything for his family. His greatest joy was being with them whenever he could, especially during the short time he had as a caring and loving Grandpa. Anyone who had the pleasure of meeting him loved his wonderful outgoing personality.

Brian had a long career with Correctional Service Canada as a Registered Nurse in the Regional Treatment Centre at Kingston Penitentiary. After he retired, he worked part-time at the Kingston Penitentiary Tours—a job he said he would have happily done for free.

Brian was a big sports fan and everyone knew he was especially devoted to his hockey team the Chicago Blackhawks.

Maureen and the girls will miss him dearly.

Aquamation has taken place and due to current restrictions, a private Celebration of Life will be held at the Wartman Funeral Home - Kingston Chapel.

Memorial donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.

Very sad to hear of the passing of Brian (aka Puff). We worked together at RTC (ON) - he had a way of always putting a smile on everyone's face from all his stories. He will be sorely missed. Condolences to his family. Rose Halleran

I started working at Kingston Pen Tours last year where I was lucky to meet Brian. I remember being caught in the RTC during a storm and Brian talked with us and told stories the entire time. It wasn't until the storm was over and we could leave that I realized I had spent almost an hour as Brian was so engaging. He was a kind, caring person, who always had time to chat, he will be missed.

I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Brian last summer working at Kingston Pen tours. Every time we talked he always had an amazing story to share. I will miss hearing Brian’s stories and will always cherish and be grateful for the ones he shared with me. I’m very sorry for your loss, Rest In Peace Brian.
