Brian Barrett Aug 1, 1943 – Dec 25, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the passing of Brian Barrett. Brian joined Steed and Evans in 1973 as a General Manager. His passion and vision for the heavy construction industry led Roy Steed and Denis Evans to choose Brian as their successor, appointing him as President and later majority shareholder. Over his 33-year tenure, Brian’s team-focused leadership style of mutual respect and hard work guided the company to be a leader in the industry. He was proud to continue the tradition of employee ownership which today is in its fourth generation.

Brian’s commitment to the industry extended beyond the walls of Steed and Evans. He was one of the founders of the Conestoga Heavy Construction Association and served as their first President. An active member of the Ontario Road Builders Association, he served on the board of directors and was President in 1995.

After retiring Brian regularly returned to the Steed and Evans family picnic, Christmas lunch, and the 25 Year Club dinner. Brian’s wife Mary and his entire family will be in our thoughts. A celebration of life will occur on April 30th at Westmount Golf & Country Club.
