Our sincerest condolences to Marie, Walt and family.
Please remember that no one is truly lost when they remain in the hearts and minds of those who love them.
Our shock and sorrow upon hearing of Brian's passing cannot be described.
Brian was a big man with a big heart and a big smile.
Never would he miss the opportunity to say hello and talk awhile; even if he had to shout across a parking lot to do so.
A prankster from childhood to manhood, Brian loved a good joke. Over the years, he played many on us.
We'll miss his pranks and surprise visits.
Those memories will always bring a smile.
To quote the Scottish poet, Thomas Campbell:
"To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die."
Brian lives on in the hearts of many.
Cousins are friends who will love you forever.

We would like to send our sincere condolences to Marie, Walter and family. Brian was a special friend and we will really miss him. We especially enjoyed his visits to the shop at the yard, where he almost never came with out coffees for us.

My deepest sympathy to the Schwoob family.
Our Camping Buddy Brian. Always came with Tim Horton's coffee and the Biggest Smile and Heart with him. Memories are left with us from camp with him bringing skids and wood for our fire pit (Timber), we even got him to go swimming once. The thought of you not being at camp will be hard for all who knew you, but we all will have Sminoff Ice in your memory. Rest Peacefully Friend You were the Biggest Heart Smiling Person we knew

To Marie and family. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
Brian was a very good friend to my dad. Marie and him would visit and play cards with dad before he passed. R.I.P. Brian
Brain was a saint he was the nicest person I ever had the pressure of meeting when I moved to smithville I met him in town when I first moved here he made me feel so welcome from his smile on his face to his kind words I was in shock to hear what happened tohim he was always so nice to me would always take time out of his day to talk to me if he saw me and would always offer a helping hand he always smiled made me laugh and would always tell me the country song he enjoyed hearing that day and we would always talk about the music one thing we had in common and always get into a battle about who was better singer that and we would always say before one of left your ways after catching up and a tims coffee later would alway say at the same time its draw they are both good until next time he told me all the good spots in town I am forever grateful for meeting him and calling him a friend of many to the family I am sorry for your lostand I will miss him everyone needs someone like him in their lifes we could all learn from him
Although Brian's size was deceiving, he was the gentlest giant you'd ever want to meet. He also, never had a bad thing to say about anyone.
He had been a friend of my entire family and extended family, for as long as I can remember and we were lucky for it. He was happiest running the roads in his pickup truck, doing small favours for several friends, listening to country music, smiling all the way.
We would like to extend our deepest condolences to Marie, Walter, Cathy(and Family)for their tragic loss of a wonderful son, brother & uncle.
Please lean on friends & family for strength, comfort & support. Also remember that you are all thought of often and loved a bunch.
Wishing you peace & courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. He will never be forgotten.
Love always, Norm & Julie Groff
Randy and I send our thoughts and prayers to Marie and Walter during this shocking and sad time. I will always remember Brian stopping by to just say Hi let us know that one of the dogs were on the road, he always had a coffee but hmmm would forget us lol. His smile, friendly face and willingness to help no matter what will be greatly missed. Rest easy friend till we meet again.
