Dear Bert and Mary
We are truly saddened to hear of Brian’s passing. I think of the fun times we had growing up in Rockwood and the serious way Brian viewed the world. Wendy and I remember how excited he was when he called in the middle of the night to announce the arrival of his first daughter.
Our thoughts are with you and your family. He will be missed.
Rob and Wendy Meek

I met Brian through Lakeside Church. He always spoke of the love for his family. May you rest in the peace of God.

Our family wishes to offer our sincere condolences to the Kelly family. We have pleasant memories of times spent with the Kelly family during the Rockwood Public School days. Brian was always the "big brother" who always acted with compassion, integrity and a subtle sense of humour. We know you will miss him greatly.
The Gray family: Carolyn Wingate, Wenda Hodsdon, Janice Walters, Sandy Gray
