Uncle Brian. I am so sad to say goodbye. I will always think of you fondly and the way you always called me "Chrissy". I know you had your struggles but you had a heart of gold. My wish is that you have peace now. Although...I am picturing you and dad arguing about politics and sports.:) I will keep you in my heart until we meet again. Thank you to those who have posted. It warms my heart to read your stories about Brian.

So Sorry to Brian's family. Brian was a good friend for many years. I first met Brian in the square in 1974. He was a solid guy with a heart of gold. I will miss you buddy. RIP

To Brian's family and friends,Muscle was a unique guy.His friendship meant a lot to me. Sun, snow or rain he was always up for a run during which we could talk about concerns we had, or just run like the blazes. There were many of us, on Brian's running team,he was the club President. I will miss his sense of humor. RIP Brian, till we run again.

Hey Brian, I remember well our days at GHS. There were ups and downs but I'll remember the 'good times'. Rest in peace my friend.
