It is with sudden shock and sadness, along with heavy hearts that Brian’s family announce his passing December 19, 2022 at the age of 60.
Brian was born to the parents of Tom McGillis (deceased), and Shirley Nicol. He attended Crocus Plains School where he loved playing on their football team and graduated from there. Brian also enjoyed curling, lacrosse, water skiing and fishing at Sandy Lake, along with many family gatherings. We all have wonderful memories of those times. He also enjoyed playing poker throughout the years until his passing.
Brian had worked at McKenzie Seeds for two years in Brandon and then decided to move to Winnipeg. He started working for Boeing until his retirement after 25 years. Brian was just getting settled in his new home to enjoy his retirement.
Brian leaves to mourn his mother, Shirley Nicol; brother, Ken(Sue) and nephew, Dore; sister, Brenda(Michael) Bilowus and their children Adam and Eric; step brother, Clint Nicol (Rhonda)and their daughters, Jordan (Justin) and Hailey; step sister, Brenda Nicol (Lee) as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. Brian was predeceased by grandparents on both sides; his father, Tom; stepfather, David Nicol; his nephew, Darren McGillis along with many aunts and uncles.
In lieu of flowers you can make a donation in memory of Brian to the Humane Society or other animal organizations, as Brian loved animals.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • We miss you Brian, as our rock spins around this big, flaming ball. Thanks for being there when it was needed most, we missed you this Christmas, we're all still in a bit of shock over it. I can't express enough how much we miss you, thanks for everything, I wish I would have said it more, we have so many memories together, I'm still in a state of shock over it, you've definitely left a hole in our hearts that we're having a difficult time filling, It was a wonderful journey to reach a compelling destination, we're so used to having you around at all of the family gatherings and events, there's a void here that can't be replaced. I can't even begin to recall all of the poker games you played at Vegas & Laughlin, there's no telling how many hours you sat next to people who you'd later complain about. Don't worry, we'll take good care of Aya, thanks for being, Brian. The memories mean so much, and I wish more people had the opportunity to experience your kindness. - RIP - Posted by: Adam Bilowus (Nephew) on: Jan 28, 2023
