After obtaining an Engineering degree from Queen’s University in 1970, he began a career as a secondary mathematics teacher for four years in Sudbury before returning to Western University in London, Ontario to obtain a law degree in 1977.  He practiced in Sudbury for six years before relocating and joining a law firm in Guelph, Ontario where he specialized in civil litigation. He ended his legal career as a Small Claims Court Deputy Judge in numerous courts in Southern Ontario.

Bryan was an avid fan of many sports particularly football, basketball and golf. He was particularly happy with his hole in one at Blue Springs Golf Course and an opportunity to attend the Masters in Augusta, Georgia. He and Anne enjoyed golfing, cycling and traveling all of which they enjoyed in Arizona, Florida and Myrtle Beach. Bryan spent over 60 years at the family cottage at Fairbank Lake in Northern Ontario and the last four years at his own island cottage on the same lake. Many memorable times were spent with family and close friends cruising the lake in their pontoon boat.

His two sons gave him the nickname “Dr. Right” as for his well known quip: “I may not always be right, but I’m never wrong.” To many he was known as “The Firm”. As a grandfather, Naiomi and Gavin will remember him for the tackle trading and trolling on the lake. Knowing the way to a man’s heart, Bryan appreciated Silvia’s culinary skills at numerous family gatherings.

Bryan will be missed by his close friends and many colleagues in the field of law and the judicial courts in which he served.
