Brian was born in Edmonton, Alberta, on January 12, 1962, and had been a resident of Revelstoke since 1995. He graduated from the University of Alberta as a Professional Engineer and was employed by the City of Revelstoke as Director of Engineering and Public Works. Brian enjoyed doing pottery, renovating his home, outdoor pursuits and, in his younger years, playing rugby. He was a very tech savvy man who loved anything to do with computers. Brian was a self-accomplished wine connoisseur, enjoyed wine tasting and helping out in his friend’s winery. The joys of Brian’s life were his wife and boys; he was very proud of them and all of their accomplishments.
Brian is survived by his wife Colleen and two sons Mackenzie and Hayden, all of Revelstoke; mother Gladys Mallet of Edmonton; two brothers: Gordon (Trish) Mallett of St. Albert and Ken (Debbie) Mallett of Edmonton; father-in-law Les Wall (Fay Cumberland) of Millet, Alberta; mother-in-law Norma Wall of Drayton Valley, Alberta; brothers-in-law Cal (Cherryl) Wall of Edson, Alberta and Larry (Donna) Wall of Sherwood Park, Alberta; nieces and nephews: Tim, Joanne, Rob, Dan, Jeff, Karey, Trevor (Lisa) and Jarret (Jessie).
