Brian lived life to the fullest and enjoyed every moment. His untimely passing was a shock to all and our thoughts and sympathy are with JoAnne and the family. Thank God he lived long enough to see his two beloved grandchildren and the South Course.

Just a note to say you will be sincerely missed by all your family and friends. You checked out so suddenly without giving us a chance to say good-by. Apparently the Lord needed your teaching skills and technical knowledge so he called for you.
Though we were not close throughout the years, we did meet at least once a year when Bobbie and I would visit Jamie, Bob and Claire. The last visit was on Thanksgiving Day when we met at

My sympathy, thoughts and prayers to JoAnne and all of the family. I know this is a very difficult time for family and friends. Brian accomplished so much during his lifetime; military leader and educator. He was a professional, an excellent teacher, and always held high standards for his students as well as himself. As a colleague, he was always dependable and encouraging. Brian's accomplishments will be remembered and he will be missed by all who knew him.

I am not sure what happened but mommy and daddy say you are now in heaven with our doggy Daisy. I will miss you Papa. I will miss the trips to McDonalds and you getting me Happy meals that sometimes were not happy or the trips to Sams and the hotdog I would get for being a good girl. I will miss the trips to Busch Gardens and you taking me on my favorite ride the 'frume' or weekend

Shock. Sadness. Dismay.......Words that come to mind when hearing of the passing of Brian. We know this is very difficult time for the family that loved him, and that he loved so much and bragged about. You are, and have been, in our thoughts and prayers.
Brian loved technology. I can remember online chats at night with Brian and other teachers on Ideas. Those were the days! Brian, along with others, was instrumental in bringing NW into the technology age

Dear Family of Brian's, My sympathy to you during this sad time. I am saddened for the loss of a friend and for his family who I know he loved. I have wonderful memories of a man who loved life and lived it too. Brian always had a smile for his friends and he had a way of making people feel special. He was just fun to be around.
May God's love bring peace and serenity to your heart.
Peace and Grace, Joyce
