So sad to hear the news today. I was a patient and had developed a close connection with Brian. He seemed to understand me well. I was excited to meet with him again and share with him some recent successes including reading a book (the gifts of imperfection) that he had recommended to me. It was a brilliant recommendation that was incredibly poignant. I have almost finished reading it a second time. My conversations with him were a big help and I’m devastated I won’t be able to have more conversations with him. Big hugs to those that also knew Brian. We lost a great one.

Oh no, I can hardly believe it! I'll miss you and all of the great conversations and jokes we shared during many years of training runs. I'll remember you every time I run the Mississippi River Road in the Twin Cities. May your spirit climb to new heights, my friend!

Brain- What a joy you were! Your passion and dedication in continually coming back to our stair climbs over the years was inspirational. You will be greatly missed by many. Prayers for peace will be going up for your family during this time. May God bless you guys.

Brian you were an absolute inspiration to other Climbers and American Lung Association supporters - across the country. It was an honor and privilege to work with you leading up to and during the Fight For Air Climb Detroit event. You can see your passion for climbing and our mission in these pictures. You will be dearly missed.

I had the privilege of meeting Brian when he participated in the Fight For Air Climb, in Columbus. Brian was taking on two Ohio (vertical mile!) climbs that weekend. I remember being so impressed by his amazing attitude and bright smile. He was so encouraging to the other climbers, thankful to the staff and volunteers, and determined to tackle the stairs. You could tell that he truly enjoyed every step he took! It was my pleasure to see Brian at many other climbs, across Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio. He became part of the American Lung Association Family, and we all feel so honored to have known him. May your memories and love, for Brian, comfort you in this time. I will remember Brian always, and keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

I met Brian in Columbus at the Rhodes Tower. After hours together in the stairwell doing a Vertical Mile, we both traveled to Cincinnati to do another one the next day. Our paths crossed at many subsequent stair races. Brian was my step sibling (the competitive stair climbing community is like a big family; we call it our step family).

Brian was a gifted athlete and truly enjoyed the events. He gave it his all every time. Equally he was a wonderful, friendly, caring person. My heart sank when I learned of his untimely passing.

Brian entered the next world while doing something he loved and surrounded by friends. May light perpetual shine upon you, my friend! My heartfelt condolences go out to Brian's family, as well as to his friends, patients, students, and all the other people he touched. Thank you for the privilege of having a chance to know you and for making the world a better place!

My thoughts and sympathy are with Brian's family, having known the Zamboni family from their years at Prospect Valley Elementary. I have fond memories of the Zamboni "kids", and I'm very sorry for your loss. Brian touched the lives of many.

I was a running friend of Brian’s in Minneapolis. He was a fellow member in a running group and I had many mornings in the last few years running at 7am on a Saturday morning. Only crazy people get that early to run and I always enjoyed his conversation— I know Brian did a little “guide running” as well that is helping a person who is blind run outside and being “their” eyes. My prayers are with the entire Zamboni family. God bless!

14 years ago Brian moved into the condo across the hallway about a week after I had. I enjoyed our talks as we passed each other when getting the mail or heading down to the garage and sharing day to day activities. He was a wonderful person and I treasured him as a good friend. RIP my friend
