When visiting Park Place for my monthly car wash I often thought of Brian and wanted to visit with him to see how he was doing in his new position, but regrettably never did. I asked about Brian today while at Park Place and was shocked and saddened to be told that he had departed this earth months earlier ...... I knew Brian for 7 years as he was my service advisor. He was always so kind and caring, and most proud of his children. I would often tease him that he needed to wear skates because he was always up and running about. He provide superior customer service, rarely seen today and I was do greatful for that. I know how much he loved his children and my heart is heavy for them and other family members. My thoughts and prayers for the family, that they find comfort and peace. Rest peacefully dear friend in the arms of our Lord.

Brian was always a true friend of mine since high school in Colorado. After he moved to Texas, he still would call every month, or so to keep in touch. I had drive down to Possum Kindom to camp with Brian at his favorite spot three times over the years, and always remember the joy he and I had when we could see each other again. Brian loved to cook while camping, and I can still remember the smell of the smoker burning most of the day while we were fishing near by. So many plans we had that were put off for reasons of work, time, or money, are now not possible sad to say! Brian you deserved better, and you are a true friend who will be missed for a lifetime! Good bye for now my friend!

I had the pleasure of working with Brian for almost 13 years. And I just thought I would share a memory with you. I would see Brian most every morning, and he would always greet me the same way, and I always responded the same way. I never asked why he greeted me in the manner that he did, I just assumed it because of my last name, Savage. Brian would walk by reach out his hand to shake mine and simply say "How" and I would reply with "and How"(my 3 stooges respone). No questions were ever asked, but it always made us both smile a little bigger. I will miss Brian. My love and prayers go out to all his family and friends. Thank you for sharing him with me.

I only knew Brian for a short time at Park Place, but he always made a point to say hello and was one of the "guys" that welcomed me into the Park Place family with open arms. It's something I will never forget and he really made an impression on me for that. He will be greatly missed as a co-worker and friend. Many prayers from my family to his.
