Brian had a great knowledge of nature. He, his brother Paul and his Dad were avid birdwatchers, and along with his Uncle Jack and Aunt Marjorie Gowdey spent many pleasant days enjoying nature together, fishing, birding or just relaxing in the outdoors. My love and deep sympathy to all his family.

Hold tight to your memories Katie (and Diane, Vickie and Beth and families too). What I respected most about Brian was, he was never a quitter. I liken it to playing cards and always getting dealt the worst hands, but you keep on playing anyway. Brian never gave up on you girls, and he always had a smile for his friends and ALWAYS asked how you were doing, when you knew he struggled a lot. Peace be with you Brian. Godspeed, my friend, Godspeed.

To The Payson Family...I have very fond memories of your Dad, he was a wonderful man who was proud of his family. I am a volunteer
at St, Luke's Place and Brian and I would play crokinole, which he loved and his chocolate milk was a favourite. I am so sorry for your loss , he has no more suffering. Cherish all your memories.
RIP Brian.
