April 11, 1969 – January 23, 2012
Brian was born on April 11, 1969 in the Michel Hospital with a smile on his face.

He met the love of his life Gail Fraser and married her on June 24th, 1995. They soon were blessed with two boys, first there was Dillan and Zachary followed two years later. Brian’s love of his family was well known and he loved his boys and his 2 “girls”, Lucy and Lexi his two dogs. Wherever Brian went Lucy and Lexi were not far behind him. He loved hunting, fishing and camping; anything pleased him as long as it was with his family. No one will miss him more than his wife Gail, his two boys, Dillan and Zachary and his beloved girls “Lexi and Lucy”.
