Jill, Dave, Nate, and Connor Thinking of you all - may your shared memories bring you comfort during this difficult time. We always enjoyed seeing Brian’s smile, and hearing his infectious laugh, “over the fence” when he visited Stratford. We were moved by the love and pride he obviously had for and shared so freely with your whole family. May his example of a zest for life, love, and adventure continue to be an inspiration for you all. His legacy will live on in your shared stories, and the model he has become for Brynne and Rylan. With love, the Framst / Carter Family

John TurnerBrian was my first best friend as we grew up on Clonard Avenue in St. Vital, Manitoba. After high school we went on different paths. He eventually moved east and I moved to Hawaii.

To Brian's family, in time you will be able to enjoy the memories of the life of this fine man. John R. Turner Honolulu, Hawaii
