    We regret to advise of the death of Sam H. Brickman peacefully at the Victoria General Hospital in Winnipeg, MB on 1 December 2005 at the age of 89 years.

    Sam was born and raised in Winnipeg and graduated from Daniel McIntyre Collegiate.  He was a Second World War veteran who served overseas for five years with the Royal Canadian Engineers.  After demobilization, he enrolled in the University of Manitoba where he graduated in Pharmacy in the Class of 1950. He worked for the Hudson's Bay Company and then ventured on his own to own Talbot Drugs. Next, Sam increased his entrepreneurship by becoming the owner of Brickman's Pharmacy.  He retired from his own business only to come out of retirement and work for White Cross Pharmacy and Shoppers Drug Marts.  He decided to retire again only to challenge a new adventure by successfully completing the Ontario Pharmacy exams and have another successful career with Big V Pharmacies in Tilbury, ON.  Sam finally retired back to Winnipeg in 1988.  He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Fort Garry Branch #90 in Winnipeg.

    Funeral services will be held at the Chesed Shel Emes Chapel, 1023 Main Street, Winnipeg on 4 December at 12:30.  Interment will follow at the Hebrew Sick Cemetery.  Donations may be made to the Manitoba Heart and Stroke, 6 Donald Street, Winnipeg.  {gdFeb2017dc} [zsd, zsp]
