Obituary for Louis Briand

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Louis Briand, aged 86, of Sydney, on Saturday, April 27, 2024, in the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

Born August 14, 1937, in Sydney, he was the son of the late Rosa (Nowel) and Louis Joseph Briand.

Surviving are his sons, Kevin Briand and Kenny Briand, both of Sydney; daughter, Lori Briand, Sydney; grandchildren, Kristen Briand, Dylan Briand and Lauryn Briand; and great-granddaughter, Ellie Axworthy.

He was predeceased by his sister, Marie Rose Petrie.

Louis was a self-made man in that he could accomplish anything he put his mind to. There wasn’t anything he could not fix or build. He started off as a barber and moved on to build a very successful business, Briand’s TV Rentals, which he owned and operated for over 40 years. In his retirement, he lived a quiet and simple life working around the yard or finding things to fix in his garage. Cheerful and optimistic in that he enjoyed life no matter what he faced and every day was a new beginning.

There will be no visitation. Funeral Mass will be held in St. Theresa’s Church on Friday, May 3rd at 11 a.m. with Rev. Evo DiPierro officiating. Interment will take place in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.

Memorials may be made to a charity of your choice.
