Our dear friend and community superstar, Brian Lynch (Jr.), passed away on December 12, 2020, at the age of 46.
As many of you know, back in 1998, Brian was a 23-year-old accountant at Ernst & Young when an unfortunate accident downtown left him with a permanent spinal and brain injury. He adjusted to his new life in a wheelchair, took that incident with fierce determination, and quickly manoeuvred to become a dedicated advocate and fighter for the disabled. Brian served on many accessibility boards, including the Markham and York Region Advisory Committees on Accessibility, and St. Luke’s Church. Brian was always grateful for his life and shared his positivity with both friends and strangers he met. His presence was energizing, insightful, inclusive and genuine. We will all miss you, Brian. However, your beaming smile, inspirational personality and continuous generosity to the greater community will live on in our hearts.
Thank you for your memorial donation.
