    Just wanted to say how sorry I was to hear of Brian’s passing. Brian was a true gentleman and good firefighter. He also loved to give you help if he knew you needed it about your car as he was mechanically inclined. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Sincerely, Bob Webb, Ret. CFPO, Etobicoke/Toronto

    The bright day became bleak when I read what Rick had posted. My heart aches for all of you. Brian always had a smile and the kindest words to say to me. His delight and love for Bev was like a guiding light for me in my own marriage. He will be missed.
