We had the pleasure of meeting Brian at a dinner with his daughter Nicole and her boyfriend, our son Alec. We immediately liked him; he was full of life, a deep happiness, and love of his family. His abiding love for them and his girlfriend shone out in everything he said. Our son had told us several stories and jokes that Brian had told; his sense of humor was wonderful but it never was hurtful. We are deeply saddened at his passing; we had so looked forward to him being a future part of our family. God bless and keep all of his family and friends. We will not forget him.

Brian is one of the most thoughtful human beings I have ever met. He has always put others before himself. Working with Ana, I met Brian. One day he texted her to come to the car. It was our lunch time. She went out to see him. The next thing we knew, he had made lunch for all of us! And boy can Brian cook. I told him he could cook for me anytime. He always was supplying Ana with extra things for her classroom and making sure we had stuff for ours too. He was just so supportive and giving. Thank you Brian for loving on us too. You were one of a kind!

There are so many stories to share...
Our first meeting, DQ in Tyler on E Front street. He met me after work. We had a sweet snack I had a blizzard and he had a dipped cone. We talked and he had me smiling and laughing the whole time. We always said “That blizzard and cone got us in trouble” It was the beginning of a beautiful relationship... That was 10 years ago this past September. Neither of us knew then that we would become something special. And special he was. I love you babe.

I never knew Brian personally, only thru Ana’s Facebook as she shared their life adventures. I could tell he was a very special man. Praying for comfort for his loved ones.
