Brian was always a kind soul. I first met him in Mrs Godinss Chefs class at Guilford. We were in the same kitchen group. We would always get recipe assignments of foods we had never heard of before and Brian brought us many laughs from that. Later on in life, Brian and I crossed many paths in grocery store backrooms as he worked for Frito Lay and I worked for Kraft Pizza. Brian and I often caught up about old high school classmates, and the life of being a vendor. One thing we always have are memories and laughs, and Brian touched many with both. He will be missed.
