Lisa and Family:

I was so sorry to see in the GAWDA news letter the announcement of Brian's passing. I was with AIRCO/BOC for may years and had great memories of Brian and working with him over the years, I joined the Airco family in 1969 and served as Brian's distributor rep along with my departed Brother (George Vondran) out of Phila Welders Supply

Prayers go out to you and the family

My condolences to my sister in law Lisa and all the Maloney family. Brian was a great guy and I always enjoyed his company. I will always remember our family Thanksgivings with him and Lisa on Hilton Head, and the hospitality and generosity he showed us. Brian knew what was important in life, and as the tribute video shows, no one lived a fuller life. We will all miss him, but he will certainly not be forgotten.
