It was with shock and great sadness to hear about the sudden passing of Donald Brenner, a former Supreme Court Chief Justice and Vancouver Foundation Board Member.  In his 11 years with Vancouver Foundation, Brenner worked tirelessly and devoted countless hours to improving communities. He always approached life with enthusiasm and an easy smile.

For a glimpse into Donald Brenner’s amazing life and life-long devotion to justice, please see his profile from Vancouver Foundation magazine, which recounts his early years as a helicopter pilot and the many years of giving back to the BC community.

Our deepest condolences to his wife Robin and his two daughters for his loss; our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
