Brian was one of the kindest souls that I ever had the privilege of knowing. Brian brought joy and laughter to all that knew him and he had a way of lighting up any room that he entered. Brian will be dearly missed and this world will not be the same place without his jolly personality and presence. Rest in Peace my friend.

My dear sweet Brian is now in the arms of our loving Lord. He was one of a kind even as a kid. He played little league with my sons and usually played left field, where he would sit down and try to tie his shoes when he should have been chasing the ball. He lived at my house during the summer and after school for many years playing with my sons. I loved him like one of my own. God bless each and every one of his family. Peace be with you.
