BRIAN MAC DONALD LOURIE August 5, 1969 - October 2, 2008 Watch out heaven, here comes Brian A graduate of Centennial College of Business Administration, Brian first put his business skills to work as a teenager selling snacks at Maple Leaf Gardens. Brian became a fixture on the french fry scene for over 20 years selling his wares from Bozo's Roadhouse Fry Truck at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. His loud metal music and his off-colour sense of humour earned him high praise from customers old and new. In 1986 Brian joined the metal band Slaughter as a drummer. His tales of his adventures with the influential band were legendary. Brian is predeceased by his parents Donald and Elsie Lourie. He leaves behind his dear fiancée Andrea Leotaud and her daughter Jasmine. Cherished by his dear brothers Brad (Lorraine) and Dan (Charlene). Brian was a proud uncle of Taryn, Maya, Ryan, Richard, Christine, Erin and Michael. Great-uncle of Alexandra, Alisha, Hazel, Jacob, Mia-Rae and Logan. He also leaves behind his best friend Mutley. Friends will be received at Jerrett Funeral Home, 660 Kennedy Road, Scarborough (between Eglinton and St. Clair Aves. E.) on Monday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A funeral service will be held in the chapel Tuesday, October 7, 2008 at 11 a.m. Cremation to follow.

I met Brian only a few times at his french fry truck. A good looking, happy guy, young and full of life. He will be missed. My deep condolences to the Lourie family for such a loss.

My deepest sympathy to your family at this very difficult time. I have known Brian for a long time and enjoyed his chip truck at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. He was always upbeat and friendly and will be greatly missed by all of us! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

"Buff", you are one of the most stand-up guys I've ever known! Always honest, always cheerful, always with a story about his recent adventures, ALWAYS offering food at his fry truck "BOZO's" and rejecting any money offered.
You will be dearly missed my friend. Even after 20 years after graduating High School, you always said "hello" whenever we were in the area. You made Fort Lauderdale one of the best trips in High School after you had EVERYONE at the hotel yelling "Lauderdale '88!" whenever people passed our group! The rugby games, hanging out at the Alpine (good ole Piner), Zack's, Sports Cafe, you always made the evening interesting. You never missed a beat man!
We'll see each other again one day my friend, in the meanwhile, keep the CC and Coke ready for me as we'll rejoice in the memories you've created for all.

RIP buddy...
