Brian had a heart for his community, helping out daily at the West Kelowna food bank, in the soup kitchen at the West Kelowna United Church, and anytime his family or one of his friends needed a hand, he was always there. He had a kind and generous heart, always giving in any capacity he could, even just to say hello to a passerby to make their day a little brighter. He will be remembered for all of these things and his tenacity for life!
A special thank you for all who cared so greatly for Brian. May you be blessed as he was blessed!
