Brian was a loving father, brother, uncle, son and friend to many and was always extremely proud of all his children's accomplishments. No matter the day or time, when his children called with a problem, questions about cooking or a home project, Brian would be there to provide his insight and help. Brian helped to guide and shape his kids by teaching them to ride bikes, drive trucks, play golf and cards, while teaching them invaluable life lessons at the same time. Those that knew Brian can attest to how kind and generous he was. He would always lend a helping hand to anyone in need, no matter the task. His hilariously unfiltered attitude and infectious smile could often brighten any room, whether during a card night with friends or a family gathering. At any event you could often find Brian playing with the animals or children; he loved both dearly including the newest light of his life, Claire, and family dog, Titan. The companionship between Brian and Titan was exactly what you see in movies, a man’s best friend. Although Brian had his struggles, he fought strongly and was helped through life by many family members and friends; especially his mother and dear friend, Jeff.
