August 29, 1970 – July 10, 2012
Brian was born at the foothills hospital in Calgary on August 29, 1970 and bounced into the world weighing just over 9 pounds. He was dedicated at First Assembly Church in Calgary and Baptized at Gospel Centre Church in Edmonton after his family moved to St. Albert in 1978. Brian always had a million questions and absorbed information like a sponge. He loved and fiercely defended his two brothers, Blair and Bob and his faith. BMX biking, basketball, weight-lifting video games and wrestling with any puzzle he could get his hands on were his favorite activities. He loved to read form age 4 and was never far from a book. Brian graduated with Honors from Meadowlark Christian School in 1988 and was already dating the love of his life, Sandra Weigl, whom he joyfully married August 4, 1991. Choosing a career in Computer Programming he graduated from NAIT in the spring of 1992. His last job, with Fekete, was by far his favorite. Brian was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia in February 2011 and spent the last 4 months in Unit 57 at the Foothills hospital where he was so thankful and appreciative of the professional yet personal care he received.
Brian is survived by his wife Sandra; four children Brayden, Brianna, Coleman and Corwin; his Father and Mother Neil and Bev; two brothers and sister-in-law Blair, Bob and Sheri; niece Emmi; Grandmother Myrtle and Grandfather Girven.
