Deepest condolences to the family. My heart and mind are still trying to come to terms that my friend is gone. Brian was so intelligent, kind and creative. I’ll always remember the times coming home from work and he’d be outside his shop tinkering on something, smiling and waving. Thank you Brian for the four wheeler rides, the dinners, music n movies we shared and the times we’d sit on your porch and watch the world go by. Thank you for all the fun times and the memories. You’ll always be in my heart. Rest In Peace my friend.
