Brian was a loving husband to Heather. He loved going on little weekend getaways with her or just playing board games and cards while lying in bed together. He truly was her best friend. Brian was an amazing father to Julien and Alexys. Loved attending the kids sport events and activities. He had a love for his yearly trips to Great Wolf Lodge with his kids and family vacations to Sauble Beach camping. He truly was a big kid at heart. He had a love for golf – going to Arizona with his husband, Sean and Keith is one of the highlights of his life, Brian got to experience – golfing on the Scottsdale Golf Course where the pro golfers had a tournament just 2 weeks later. He loved golfing with his brother in laws Chris and Jan and all friends who would golf. He also experienced many sporting events whether it would be with his father-in-law, Gary or his buddies and kids. Brian was always excited to go. He was a great, fun, happy uncle to his niece Emma, and nephews Brayden, Cole and Andrew and loved spending time with family for a BBQ and swimming. He also loved the Sabres, anything Buffalo and loved harassing with the in-laws in their Sabres vs. Leafs competitions. Anytime family would get together he would always let his mother-in-law Joanne know that she was the best mother-in-law ever. And then add he was the best son-in-law ever, of course he was the only son-in-law,haha! Brian enjoyed his Sunday night get togethers with his buddies to watch WWF and just hanging out with friends, whether it be a Thursday night for wings or just at someone’s house to hang out and talk. Esp. liked the game nights – girls vs boys – the boys would cheat. Haha! Brian was such a kind hearted soul, nice to everyone whom he met or passed through his life. Raised by a single parent, his mom Lil, he showed respect and love for everyone. He loved his time with his mom, still giving hugs and kisses each time they saw each other. Brian will be deeply missed. He was love by all.
