Bryan was born on a farm north of Ogema, to Frank and Ruby Cook. He finished his schooling and went to Moose Jaw SIAST and became an electrician, working for Coghill Electric and later at IMC (Mosaic) until his retirement in 1995.
He married Barbara Robertson on November 14, 1959 and together they raised 4 children. They had many adventures together, with highlights including a Cabin at Clear Lake and a bus trip to the Grand Ole Opry as well as many camping trips with family and close friends. Some of his hobbies included golf, boating, water skiing, downhill skiing, wood working, playing cards and sledding. He enjoyed and excelled at being a Jack of all Trades (plumber, carpenter, electrician and anything mechanical). He was a big contributor to the building of the Scout Hall and the Museum, where he showcased his lathe work. He was known to his family and friends as Mr. Fix It, there was rarely a problem that he couldn't fix. If he didn't know how to fix it before, he would learn.
He was predeceased by his loving wife of 55 years, Barbara, his sons Michael and Murray and daughter Mary.
Surviving Bryan are his daughters Ciaandra (Neil) and Laurie (Ernie) and daughter in law Sharon. 5 Grandchildren Trevor (Wendy), Megan (Kyle), Ryan (Michael), Zac (Sara) and Spencer. 8 great Grandchildren Ethan, Nathanial and Grace, Ayla, Easton and Rolston, Jason, and SJ.
