Brian's love for Gina and Taryn was immeasurable. They were his whole world. He was also a loving son, brother and friend. He lived his life with love, kindness, strength, courage, a sense of adventure, and a wonderful sense of humor until his last moments with us. He will forever be remembered for his laughter, heartfelt embraces and love of family and friends. He was a lover of the great outdoors. He loved camping and going to his acreage, flying his plane (which he was so proud of), adored family dinners, game nights, but most of all, he loved being a dad and instilling his joy of life into his daughter. Brian held many titles in his lifetime; he worked for his future father-in-law as a gas attendant while attending high school. He joined the Canadian Armed Forces, where he became a Marine Engineering Mechanic. He worked in the logging industry, and he attended Aviation School, where he obtained his Commercial Pilot License. For the last 15 years, he has worked as a Heavy Equipment Operator with Suncor in Fort McMurray. Brian will forever be loved and sadly missed by all who knew him.
