Brian was born on August 8, 1951, to Rodney and Lorraine (nee Therres) McMillan, in Humboldt, SK. He grew up on their farm east of Pilger and attended Colorado/Pilger School. Brian worked at various occupations throughout his life, with the most recent at CNH New Holland in Saskatoon, until his retirement. Brian will be best remembered for his love of animals and the outdoors. Growing up on the farm, Brian spent much of his time outside. He was well-known to return home after a long day of exploring, with his dogs in tow and usually some sort of stray animal, from foxes, birds, and mice to even skunks. Brian will also be remembered for the love of his family, inquisitive mind, and his love of sports, especially his lifelong passion of the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Montreal Canadians. Brian was known as a trickster and loved to play practical jokes on everyone he met. He enjoyed watching old western and war movies, and lis- tening to music, especially country, his favourites being Elvis and Johnny Cash.
