Someone once said the meaning of life is love. Brian was the epitome of love. He loved life, family, friends and even those he hadn't met but heard about from others. A great honor and privilege to have known and loved him. Made me feel as if I was another brother, an uncle to my son and the brother to my wife she never had growing up. We will always remember him as family. He will truly be missed.

Oh where do I begin... I was a part of a group of friends that included Brian we shared many a good time all over the place.. whoever we were whatever we were doing he gave us his words of wisdom.
I think I only got to cut Brian's hair once I was the cutter of the group... or should I say trim... He laughed saying not much there.
He was a remarkable person fun and very smart. He will be missed he loved his brothers and everyone around him.
