Brian was one of my best friends in high school and afterwards while I was living in Fort Wayne. We had a lot of good times camping and just hanging out. May God rest his soul.

Brian was a great friend of my brother John during high school years and early 20s. We all had so much fun and I always enjoyed Brian and his sense of humor. He will be remembered fondly and missed by many!

Brian was fun at work. He loved to talk about Cierra and his dogs. He showed me videos of him letting his dogs out of the car to get some exercise. It was hysterical. They were in the country and the dogs were so excited. They would take of running at full speed and he would follow behind in his car. When he stopped and gave the command they would run back and jump in the car. Once a lady called the sheriff. He saw the police lights come on and got the dogs back in the car. The sheriff said there was a complaint and Brian explained what he was doing. The sheriff was kind of surprised. He said, “Well the no law against that. Have a great day.” We both laughed over that one.

Brian was a grade school classmate. I remember in 6th grade our teacher, Mr. Werling, let Brian show and tell a rocket he made. It went off and drifted a 1/4 mile away! That didn't stop Brian from getting it back. He came back about an hour later. Mr. Werling was so thankful he returned and didn't have to call the police to find one of his students! We always had fun like that. Times were different back then. But I know Brian really never changed. He was stubborn and funny! My condolences and sympathy to your family. May Brian rest in God's arms forever.
