I was shocked and saddened to hear of Brian’s passing. I have such good memories from many years ago when Brian was still living with his mom & dad which was just around the corner from where we lived. We shared many good times, lots of laughs and of course I heard a million stories, he sure had the gift of the gab. I know you will all have many wonderful memories and hope that those memories will keep him close forever. Sending my condolences and deepest sympathy.
My sincere sympathy Marcia – losing loved ones is always difficult.
My condolences to you Marcia and family. Brian was a good man and I had a lot of respect for him, he will be missed!
I’m sorry to hear of Brian’s passing, I hadn’t seen Brian since we were kids, we were cousins, we lost track of him over the years as our branch of the Stevenson’s lived in BC, but always remember what a happy kid he was and always full of mischief when we’d be on vacation or trips to Ontario. I’m sure he was full of good times his whole life. My condolence to his family.

We were cousins and great friends when we were young.
We shared the same middle name Edward after our great grandfather Edward Stevenson
Our sincere condolences to the family.
I am one of Brian’s younger cousins. My mom, Helen Stevenson, was Fred Stevenson’s youngest sister.
When I was a kid I always looked forward to visiting Barbara and Brian. Brian was a super cool older cousin and I thought he was really, as we said back then, groovy.
I last saw him at his mothers funeral.
I am sad that he has passed away and I hope that you find comfort with good memories of him.
Gone far to soon
I’m still having a hard time wrapping my head around his passing
He is sorely missed
Our sincere condolences to Marcia and the Stevenson family.
Nick and I spent many years in Sylvan Lake when Brian ran the golf course. So much fun and laughs, too many to mention. Brian was way too young to leave us, but maybe now he’s golfing in heaven. (ha ha) don’t know about that one. RIP dear friend.
Our sympathy to you Marcia and family. We understand your loss.
