It is with an unimaginable sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Brian on October 8, 2020 at the age of 58. A man of few words but whose actions spoke volumes. He was a passionate and loving husband to Julie, an amazing and supportive father to Eric, a completely devoted son to Olive (John), and father in law Brian (Donna) and adored nephew to Ann (Ron). He was loved, appreciated and cherished by Sister Karen (Peter) and Ron (pre-deceased) and was a treasured friend to brother -in-laws Steven (Andrea), Tom (Marilyn) and Paul (Jane). He loved his nieces and nephews as one would a daughter or son; Jessica (Dan,) Ryan, Liam, Connor, Jack, Ethan and Sophia. His large circle of cousins, aunts and uncles mourn the loss of their gentle giant and ardent cheerleader; his friends and neighbor feel the enormity of his passing. Brian had a long career in television media and is remembered with an abundance of kindness and respect by his colleagues. He took joy in the simplest of pleasures, golf, cycling and walking hand in hand; he never needed much, just the love and company of family; rest in peace my love

“and we’re wrapped in light, in life, in love”

Our sincere thanks to Halton Police and Paramedics and the emergency room staff at Milton General Hospital who worked so hard to save our beautiful man. With Covid restrictions in place, we will wait for the world to settle before coming together to honor his memory.

In light of flowers, donations to a children’s charity or animal rescue would be most appreciated.

Even though I only got the pleasure to work with Brian for 5 years, he was such a huge influence and leader to our team. From my own experience not only was he a mentor, but also a friend that would take the time to listen and give advice both in the work environment and more importantly in regards to life itself. There is a group of us here, that routinely talk about Brian, and how much we have missed him over the years, and each of us has our own story in what Brian gave, and meant to us. He helped me get through some very difficult years, and he made each day an absolute pleasure to come into work and helped me forget about what was going on. His life coaching and advice helped save me numerous times, and I only wish I listened a little more intently and acted on more of his suggestions. For that alone I will forever be grateful.
I have always missed our Cigar chats, and every time I fire one up I always think of him.

Please take care, and find pride in knowing that he had such an influence on so many people.
His memory will never be forgotten.
