Brian was born November 25, 1964 and has resided mainly in the Portage la Prairie area. He was well known to be a hardworking man who studied carpentry. Brian was employed at various places the longest of which was Jamor Farms, which he had hoped to return in the spring.
His hobbies and interests were cars, motorcycles, astronomy, science fiction, world history, classic rock (AC\DC), heavy metal magazines and overall enjoyed reading and learning as much as he could. He took pride and joy being able to spend time with his daughters and grandchildren. In the Summer of 2020 he bought himself a gift which he showed off and enjoyed with pride “a 1996 Collectors Edition LT4 Corvette”
