Brain and I were close friends when we were 5 and 6 years old in Jersey City, my family moved to Secaucus and I didn't see Brain till 30 years later. I ran into Brian in Segros deli and it was like old time. It turned out we lived on the same street in Secaucus. Brain and I would run into each other and always have a good conversation. Brain Rest in Peace and god bless your family

Rest In Peace Brian. You will be missed so much. Thank you so much for being so welcoming and generous to me for so many years. I am so thankful all the good times I had with you and your family. We always had great times at the barbecues, swimming in the pool, going out to dinner and more. Thank you for being so kind to me and my family. Kathy, Kelly, and Colleen now have you, Katlin, and Kristin looking over them.🤍

Brian was a most kind and generous man. He showed love in all that he did. I will never forget his extraordinary kindness to me when I was going through a very difficult time. I will genuinely miss his family facebook posts...his fatherly love was evident in all of them. Thank you Brian for all you did.

The first time we met was at your brother Jacks funeral and we immediately connected. We continued to keep in touch with our many phone conversations.Though it has been awhile I will always cherish those moments and the memories of what a great person and Dad you were to your children. This is really a shock and I am at a loss for words . Fly high with the Angels and have a cold one with Jack when he greets you at the Pearly Gates. RIP
My Deepest Sympathy to Kathy,Kelly and Colleen &family
This is truly a great loss for everyone. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers Jack &Mary Ann Farrington (FDJC)

First off I all deeply sorry for your loss. I’m soo sad. Brian was such a nice guy. I just saw him with Marley on Thursday at the Millridge dog park. I told him to meet the spin crew for the Friday morning class. Brian and the group would stay after class and talk to Pete (who just passed during covid lock down from cancer). We were both in shock over that. He was the counselor. Brian surely will be missed. I’m just so sorry for your loss God Bess your family. 🙏
