I am so sorry to hear of Brian's passing. We worked together in NC and reconnected again after I moved back to WV. Sadly, I have not heard from or seen him in a couple years. I'll always remember him as a great RT, good friend and someone with an amazingly big heart.

I meet Brian through dog sitting his dog Biscuit, which was his Dads pup I think. He was so caring for his pup and such a friendly person who loved his church and singing in the choir I was so happy when he moved closer to his sister and his family nieces and nephews in North Carolina he would look so forward to going to see them and I would watch Biscuit for him he will be missed I’m sure I pray for his family for strength as we know we have comfort to know he went home to see his Mom and Dad what a reunion they are having! God Bless this family during this time and lots of love, Beth Small

I will never forget the days of Brian, Jack Haddad, and I riding bikes and swimming as kids. Playing whiffle ball. The 3 of us had wonderful times and they are times I will always cherish. I will miss you, my friend. I know one day we will meet again on God's golden shore. And we will laugh and talk of the days of our innocence. Until then know you will live in my heart and my memories.

Rest easy my friend. I was just thinking of Brian. We went through school together from kindergarten until we graduated high school. Then on to Marshall. I have many great memories of him.

I went to school with Brian, and we graduated together. He was a dear friend, he was so kind, funny and smart. I was just thinking about him a few weeks ago, as well as others I graduated with. And I realized I had not seen him since. And then I get the sad news about him. I am so sorry for you all, I pray God will comfort you, and let you find peace today, and the days to come. My sincere condolences. May you rest in peace my dear friend. 😥💔🙏
