I also worked with Brian at GE Railcar for many years until he left in the early 2000s. He was a great guy and fun to work with. We were all young and worked long hours together and became family. I ran into him last year after many years of not seeing Brian and in true fashion we caught up with a 30min chat in the grocery store. I left with a smile on my face and good feeling of reconnecting. My condolences go out to all those friends and family of Brian's as he will be sadly missed.

It has been years since I worked with Brian aka "Chicken" at G.E. Railcar.
My memories of him all involve high energy, crazy humor, and honesty.
Even after so long ago; his loss is a loss to us all.
Our lives are a collection of personal memories and experiences and our legacy is in the memories and experiences that we leave with others.
His legacy is significant.
My deepest condolences go out to all that had the good fortune to have known him.
The world is a lesser place without him in it; but a much better place because of his presence, no matter how fleeting it may have been.
