Following in his father's footsteps, Brian began his working career with the Hudson's Bay Company.  He later earned Red Seal Journeyman Pipefitter status and joined the U.A. Local 179. He referred to the brotherhood as his “second family”.   Brian enjoyed fishing, barbecuing, playing pool, NHL hockey (Toronto Maple Leafs), CFL Football (Saskatchewan Roughriders), Blues music, attending family & friend celebrations, and dancing. Brian was a great mentor with his wisdom and understanding. He had a warm sense of humour and was quick to forgive. Brian was a hard worker and a devoted family man who loved the Lord.  He was a man of strong character, excellence and grace. He held his community of Cumberland House in high esteem. Even though he ad to leave for employment, Brian always was happy to return to his island home. He has left us with special memories to cherish until we meet again.
