Uncle Brian was a great man, always kind and cool. I have wonderful memories of Brian playing with baby Natalie. He was a man filled with love. I came across this picture from the first Christmas we celebrated together. He will live on in spirit and in our memories.

Uncle Brian was a great role model. He had a positive outlook on life and was fun to be around. I will always remember him as a sailer and someone to share movie lines with. He is a very special soul. And I know he will be with us throughout the years...watching over us.

Brian was a a great friend and business associate of many at 3M. I valued his business perspectives in AAD, Marine, and IB Key Accounts. I enjoyed working with him but most of all having an ice cold beer with him after work or a industry trade show. He always had your back, his loyalty unparalleled! I’m sure his persona has enriched so many lives and will be enriching many souls in heaven!

I golfed with Brian a handful of times and to say that I struggle with the game of golf is putting it lightly. He was always offering encouragement and tips which will always be appreciated.

I have known Brian for many years having worked together in the 3M Industrial business. I have always seen Brian as a respectful, inclusive leader and someone that everyone enjoyed having on the team. He was known for that great big smile and his creativity when managing key accounts. Each year he would come up with new programs to engage our channel partners sales teams. Wearing funny outfits, making creative videos and communicating as a true professional. I also recall taking trips with Brian and was impressed with his sense of confidence and "ease" around others . I also recall running a few 5K's with him at ISA and how energized he was at the starting line, with his BIG smile shining as bright as the SUN. He loved life! Brian we will all miss you and our company and this world is a better place with you having been in it! God Bless my friend! Dan

I am grateful to have worked with Brian at 3M. Brian was a true professional who instantly earned the respect and trust of customers and 3Mers.

Brian was both a great help and example to me, and many others at 3M. Brian was always a joy to be around both during and after the workday was done.

We will miss you Brian!
