He developed and ran a house and pet sitting business in Winnipeg for many years, HomeAlone. He had a green thumb and developed a beautiful garden at his family home.
Bryan was passionate about animals, had a fascinating variety of exotic pets, including reptiles, snakes, cats and dogs that he trained to licensed therapy level. He and his dogs volunteered countless hours with St John's Ambulance and Riverview Health Centre.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
This was shocking to learn about today, I was just thinking of getting in touch to see how you have been after a few years of not being in touch. We both taught each other so much in our time of working together at Petland I have not forgotten any of the knowledge you passed along. I will miss you, and just for you, I will get some funding up to donate to the world wildlife fund in memory of your name especially knowing how much animals and nature meant to you. - Posted by: Tyler Reitmeier (Worked along side Bryan at petland for a few years) on: Jan 09, 2021
I have so many memories of growing up with Bryan at the Winnipeg Canoe Club...playing badminton and tennis...and traveling to many badminton tournaments around the country with Bryan as teenagers. We played with and against each other in singles and men's doubles, and he always was one of the most talented and disciplined players on the court. We were very lucky in those days that all of us kids knew not only each other, but each other's families as well. Ron & Judy, Bryan's parents, had been friends with my parents for years, and along with my sister and so many others, being good friends with Bryan and Riley continued the tradition. My deepest condolences to Riley, and everyone who was close to Bryan. It was a shock to read that this had happened - gone far too soon. - Posted by: Greig Blamey (Friend from younger days and sport teammate) on: Dec 22, 2020
I met Bryan through Jim and have good memories of the short time I knew him. He was kind to me after an accident and I will remember that time. He loved his dog and his interests and accomplishments were varied. My condolences to his family and to Jim. - Posted by: Richard Hathaway (Acquaintance) on: Dec 19, 2020
Such a great athlete, humorous individual, wonderful & kind soul. So glad I stopped to chat to catch up with him never realizing it would be the last time. My condolences to the entire family. 🙏🏽❤️ - Posted by: Sherri Copsey (Junior High) on: Dec 19, 2020
Bryan was always fun to be around. We were such an eclectic group of individuals in Manitoba Badminton, but we had lots of laughs and good times. I played with (mixed doubles) and against Bryan on the court. Always a good sport and a gentleman. Both his parents were very involved and volunteered countless hours so we kids could play. And...he did an amazing SNL Church Lady impersonation!! RIP Bryan - Posted by: Jane Fenwick Queree (Badminton friend and teammate) on: Dec 19, 2020
