Brian was a prostate cancer survivor for 11 years and leaves his loving and cherished mother Alice (Ear Falls, ON) and dearest sister Elaine (Grande Cache, AB). Predeceased by his Father Norris “Curly” Mclellan, Brian will be greatly missed by John Zuefle and family, many wonderful friends, incredible nieces and nephews, many much-loved uncles and aunts. Brian will always be remembered for being a genuine and caring person who had a great sense of humour and quick wit. He touched many hearts with his faith and love of life.
