  1. Goodbye Brian. We were not able to see much of each other since high school. I was glad we were able to meet up again a couple of yeas ago. From what I read and hear from friends you have led a very good life and have had a positive influence on many people. I am not surprised as you were always upbeat, positive and unselfish. My condolences to Patsy and your family.

  3. Bryan, you will be missed by many. I remember the great times we had at the camp on Windy back in our high school days, particularly you, Norm Bouclin and I waterskiing off the dock (including many face splashes). You were always very generous with your time and always there when help was needed. You always faced life with a smile and unbounded optimism. A rare quality for which you deserve so much respect and admiration.

  4. I am sorry to hear about Bryan. When I was a young man/boy not sure of my path in life, Bryan helped me out by giving me direction in life. I have always appreciated the start he gave me in my working career and I am forever grateful for his recommendations to other employers. He was full of fun and he taught me to be light and laugh whenever possible. Bryan was a very generous soul, and I witnessed him helping many through some tough times. This left a good impression on me, and taught me the value of being kind and helpful to others.

    He is a man I will never forget. Our hearts go out to you.

  5. From Ken Miron & Fran Mason
    Pat , Heather & Trevor & family.
    Sorry to hear of Brian’s death. We have many fond memories of both him & your family. Brian’s generosity was legendary. He as always there for people.. Most of the time he worked behind the scene & neither wanted or expecte credit. Cared for others & trivialize his own problems. Although we haven’t seen him much in the past few years we still feel like we have lost a good friend. We will be out of town for his celebration of life so give yourselves a big hug from us.
    Ken & Fran
