About Brian's Life

Brian was born at 8 Shirley Avenue, Carshalton to George and Edna Guiver on 3rd December 1949.
His father George was an Aero engineer for British Airways and his mother Edna was Domestic Supervisor at Sutton hospital. Brian also had an older sister called Carole.

Brian went to St. Mary’s Roman Catholic School in Carshalton and when he was 7 he contracted Polio and had to be in an iron lung. Brian spent 4 months in Queen Mary’s hospital and during this time he was taken to the cinema by ambulance to watch Fantasia. He had his photo taken with the Mayor and Mayoress of Sutton for the local newspaper upon arrival. He overcame the illness and aged 13 rode to Brighton and back on his bicycle (96 miles).

His life was full of challenges and he was always looking for mysteries to solve. He was an explorer and loved history, researching many topics including his family tree, because family meant the world to him. Brian had a few close friends during his life and was loved by all for his kindness and patience, he was a good listener and never judged others, he simply let people be themselves and was always there if you needed him. Brian will be greatly missed, but those who knew him will have many fond memories of him to keep in their hearts.

A true gentleman and beautiful spirit.
