It is with great sadness that we, his family, announce the passing of Brian, at the age of 72 years. He passed away peacefully July 25th, 2022, with family by his side.

Brian is survived by his wife of 24 years, Ann; children, Jason (Denise); granddaughters, Jenica and Sydney Roberts; Stephanie (Simon); grandson, Jack Bourne; Natasha (Wayne); grandchildren, Keiryn, Kamryn and James Straub; and Christopher Acton-Browne. He was also pre-deceased by his son, Ian Roberts in 2000.

Brian was born and raised in Vancouver, the only child of Bud & Margaret. Following his high school graduation, Brian went on and received his BA in History and then joined the Canadian military where his 35-year career as a police officer began and finally finished in 2000 when he retired from the Medicine Hat Police Service.

During his service with MHPS he was partnered with a fellow police officer, Mark Fenterman, and this led to a lifelong friendship even after Brian retired. Brian cherished his friendship and time spent with Mark during these years whether it be their pizza and movie nights or just catching up over coffee and for this we thank you, Mark.

Following retirement, Brian loved to read and watch movies especially anything to do with military history. He also spent many an hour on his computer.

As per Brian’s final request, no formal funeral service will be held.

He will be remembered quietly by his family and friends.

We, his family, would also like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the staff at AgeCare Riverview LTC who cared for Brian during the last few months of his life.

Arrangements are made by


Grace Memorial Affordable Burial & Cremation

    I just heard of Brians passing and was shocked and saddened. I had know Brian for many years and I was his brother in law through his first wife. I had kept in touch for several years and had seen him a few times when he worked with MHPS and had coffee with him . As time went on we lost touch with each other but he will be missed but not forgotten. Rest in peace Brian.
