Brian loved the outdoors and enjoyed camping, gardening and building things.  He had a passion for all sports but especially hockey and baseball.  He and Diane spent many summers back home in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.  Brian was a most beautiful soul and he touched everyone he met.  He was always so kind and caring and never hesitated to put others before himself.  He loved his family – especially his two grandsons and he shared a very special bond with his great grandson, Xavier.  They were definitely best buddies!
