Brian was born in Raymond, Alberta on February 7, 1950, where he lived with his family until they moved to Picture Butte, Alberta when Brian was 13 years old.

Brian worked at the GM dealership, the Rimbey Seniors Lodge, and was employed with Rimbey Ford at the time of his passing. In 2000, Brian became a grandfather for the first time when his granddaughter, Jada Lynn Stephenson was born, and in 2012 he welcomed his grandson, Brian Carter Restall into the world.
