Brian served in the HMCS and sailed the world; and enjoyed his time as an employment counsellor for his own community and an Education Counsellor at Kenjgewin Teg for 20 years, his second family.
His passion was watching sports including his favorite team, the “Habs” and playing Island baseball.  He enjoyed family gatherings, cooking, pool, listening to classic rock, leisurely walks, hunting, fishing, boating, live concerts and puttering around both in the yard and spending time with his friends in his famous “man cave”. Brian’s pride was watching his children play minor hockey for our community and showed up for every game.  
Brian was very compassionate for his community and members of M’Chigeeng and served many years as a Band Councellor and Deputy Chief; he took great pride in being of service to his Anishinabek people.  He will be forever remembered for his friendly waves, daily texts, turkey stuffing, baked beans, and loyalty.

It was with great sadness that I learned of Brian's sudden passing. When I retired from teaching, I chose to proctor students for their exams at KTEI. Brian welcomed me with open arms and made my job so easy. I was accepted into his KTEI family. I also enjoyed attending many of the Fall Harvests that Brian was an integral part of. He cooked up some delicious moose meat. He also shared moose meat with my family which I truly appreciated. I will miss meeting up with him in the Island community. The last time I saw him was at the Grille and Chill with his family. RIP Brian and condolences to Stephanie, Cassandra, Brian Jr. and his family and friends.
