Condolences & Memories (10 entries)

  • I'm so sorry to hear of Brian's passing. My thoughts are with Bridget and family. I worked for both Bridget and Brian many years ago at Hair's the place. Starting on Watt St and then on Henderson. I learned alot from both of them and enjoyed their conversation. They were both excellent hair stylists and employer's to work for/with. Much love Bridget, Susan and Bob❤️ - Posted by: Susan Fedorchuk (Employee/friend ) on: Apr 04, 2023

  • To the Roberton family: We are saddened to hear of Bryan's passing. Living so far away from the 'Peg, we have lost contact with a lot of dear old and long time friends. Yes, I did have my haircut by Bryan, AND I drove a Kawasaki Z1P - when he asked me "where on earth did you get that?" But mainly we remember Bryan, and the Roberton's from Gull Lake MB. on the other side of the Fosketts. -Dan & Lynda Dunbar (Kamloops, BC) - Posted by: Dan & Lynda Dunbar (Friends and "neighbours") on: Sep 16, 2022

  • So sorry for your loss Bridget. Condolences to you and your family. - Posted by: Donna Berzuk (Aquaintance) on: Sep 03, 2022

  • What can be said, anyone that had the pleasure knowing Bryan will know what I am talking about when I say he was one in a million. His stories and the ability to listen were amazing. His dedication to the motorcycling community and to the facial hair community was unmatchable. He sponsored many, many winners, with myself being one, for that I am extremely thankful. Bryan, I can never repay your friendship and mentorship. Your wit, your caring will be forever unmatched. Sleep well my friend, catch you on the other side, when it’s time together we shall ride! Love you brother, RIP. - Posted by: Ron Gross (Friend/brother ) on: Sep 03, 2022

  • I enjoyed many conversations with Bryan over the years. Usually over a quick coffee at X-Cues. I will miss running into him. He always had an excellent story to share—my condolences to his wife Bridget and his family. - Posted by: George (Friend ) on: Sep 03, 2022

  • I grew up in the 300 block of Sydney Ave. Bryan's family lived on the corner. His parents business's were on the corner. Bryan's dad cut my hair and Bryan cut my hair. I was first interested in motorcycles from Bryan and George. Later we rode together a few times. Always a decent man. My condolences to his family. - Posted by: Scott Miner (Friend) on: Sep 03, 2022

  • Thank you Bryan, for being part of our motorcycle community. I still remember your leading the helmet rally in 1968. Always an activist, you could see the bigger picture. Thank you for your care and commitment. Enjoy your ride in heaven. - Posted by: John Evan (fellow riderThank) on: Aug 27, 2022

  • Bryan and his father Jim gave me some of my first haircuts at their shop on Watt Street many years ago. Years later, while working as a reporter, I saw him speaking to a crowd of people at the Manitoba legislature who were protesting legislation making motorcycle helmets mandatory. He was a good speaker and had a sense of humour. My condolences to the family. - Posted by: phil mowatt (former customer) on: Aug 27, 2022
