Brian and I (along with his wife Maureen) got to be friends through playing together each week as a part of a local trivia team.

I was deeply saddened when I learned of Brian's passing because in just a short five year period, he became a very good friend of mine. The kind you don't make very often in life.

I know that I'm going to spend a long time missing my friend.

Rest In Peace Good Sir.
