Blessed to have lived in Tay Township all his life after attending the University of Guelph where he developed friendships that continued over his lifetime.

Dad believed in giving back and supporting his community.  He was an active member of Unity United Church in Vasey; served on Tay Township council and committees; was a University of Guelph alumni; a member of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture and a canvasser for over 30 years for the Cancer Society.

Brian will be remembered for his love of current affairs, politics, history and most importantly engaging with people and asking questions.
