Brian Ralph Kortzman



It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Brian Kortzman, who passed away on December 27th, 2014 after a long battle with Cancer.

Brian, the son of Esther and Ralph Kortzman, was born in Edmonton in 1947 and spent his life there raising a family and enjoying a long career as a salesman for Russell Food Equipment where he made many friends throughout the years. He was an avid sports fan and spent his time coaching numerous hockey and ringette teams. Brian was a lifetime member of the Canadian Athletic Club and was a member on the Board of Directors of the CAC Beavers Alumni. He had a big personality and a generous heart, relishing a good story and cherished time with his friends and family. He will be dearly missed and is survived by his son, Kelly (Alica Laughlin) Kortzman and daughter, Kendra (Tate) Pinder; grandchildren: Maxwell and Sinead Kortzman, Lauren Pinder, Sarah Logan, Hannah (Iain Bolton) Kortzman and her children, Tianna and Harlee; niece, Magda Vince; sister in law, Peggy Ann Vince; ex-wife, Linda Vince who remained a true friend and provided care and comfort to the end; and numerous friends whom he considered family.

A special thank you to the nursing staff in Unit 9Y at the Edmonton General Hospital for their care and support.
