Saby, Brian

November 15, 1957-November 8, 2020

Dr. Andrew Brian Saby (DDS) passed away peacefully at home on November 8, 2020.

Brian was predeceased by his father Chester and brother Dave.

Brian is survived by his mother Wasanne, wife Linda, daughter Julie, son Michael, brother Don (Rose) and brother Gord (Lisette).

Brian graduated from U of Alberta Faculty of Dentistry when he was only 23 years old and began a long career as a dentist. He had a lifelong passion for personal achievement and became a world class cosmetic dentist over the years, a field in which he was a pioneer in Central Alberta.

Brian retired from dentistry a few years ago and enthusiastically pursued his interests (ranging from woodcraft to pumpkin-carving) on a full-time basis.

Brian will be remembered for his extraordinary talent as a dentist, his refreshing candor, his boundless creativity, and his unswerving loyalty to friends and family.

No service will be held.

Memorial donation's in Brian's name may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Oh Linda, I'm shocked to read about the passing of Brian, so very sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful man and excellent dentist. He was my first dentist when I moved here years ago and I sure missed him after he retired . My thoughts and prayers go out to you and the kids and your family. He will truly be missed by many. Rest in peace Brian

Maureen Fleming:

Linda and family, I was saddened to hear of Brian's death. He was much too young! Sending my thoughts and prayers to you all as you begin to adjust to this huge loss. Maureen

Glenn & Wendy Moore :

Our sincere sympathies for your loss Linda & Family. We remember Brian’s passion for cycling and sailing, he was an expert in so many ways.... He will be missed.

Joanne Barnes:

Dear Linda, my heartfelt condolences, to you and your family, for your loss. I didn't know Brian well , only having the privilege of travelling with the two of you to Morocco back in 2019. I was struck by his sense of humour and sense of storytelling. That and his disdain for tiny vehicles :) He was a trooper and made sure we all got a more comfortable ride during our trip. His willingness to speak up to right a wrong and make sure that we are all taken care of and comfortable made for a very enjoyable adventure. In your time of pain try to remember the number of times he made you laugh, for one of his obvious joys was in doing just that. Be well my friend and know that I am thinking of you!


Beverly Smith:

My deepest sympathy to Linda and family. Dr. Brian was a dentist that went above and beyond; he was always just a phone call away if you ran into an emergency. His professional knowledge and expertise changed by life and truly, he gave me a smile. A great person has left this world.

So sorry to hear the passing of Brian. I still remember all the years working for him and how much he taught me along the way. You are all in my thoughts at this time.

My deepest condolences to the Saby family. Brian was my dentist for a number of years and
his knowledge, perfectionist abilities, and general conversation and honesty were greatly appreciated. Linda and family so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you.

Dr. Matthew Danchuk:

I am writing to express my deep sadness upon hearing the news of Dr. Saby’s passing. I knew him professionally for many years via Dental study clubs in Edmonton. He was one of the few whom could “talk the talk” and “walk the walk” when it came to his Dental work, expertise and final results. He was the whole package and a professional example to which I continue to aspire to everyday. My sincere condolences to both his immediate and extended family and friends and his professional circle.
So sorry for your loss.
Dr. Matthew Danchuk

Rodney & Linda De Martin:

Our deepest sympathy to Linda & Family. I sure will miss passing Brian on my morning walks.
Not long ago Brian took me behind his home and showed me all the work he completed. A perfectionist.

Carol and Byron Wilson:

So saddened to hear of your loss of Dr. Sabey. Spent many times in his office and was an excellent Dentist and very personable to all. Linda worked along his side. Will be missed by his family and everyone that knew him. Always walked out of his office with a warm cookie!! Hugs to the family.

Kelly Blanch:

Dear Linda and family,
So saddened to hear of Brian’s passing , I got to know Brian a little at the swimming pool , he really was a great swimmer and I enjoyed hearing about his woodworking projects.
God bless you,

Brian Lambert & Lori Wood:

Our sincerest condolences to the Saby family and especially to Brian's wife. We just read about his passing and were very shocked and saddened to hear of his passing.
Although only met him once, we saw his many talents and craftmanship in creating items for Linda's hobby. Even though he may not have taken part in her hobby, he was there for support as we could all see in his art. Linda often talked fondly of Brian and that's how we all got to know him. Will miss his talents in that respect, and getting to see his next great creation.
Rest in Peace Brian

Beth and David Mathison:

God Bless!
