I met Brian right before he got married to Michelle I was married to Laura, Michelle’s Aunt! He was always a great man who was always happy and smiling. When he moved to the new house in Center Grove area he was so proud of it and the improvements he made! The times I was around him he was very nice and funny. He loved his wife and his daughter Morgan and his 2 step sons. My condolences to the family and he will be missed. Even though I was not apart of the family after 2011, I was still saddened by his loss and the pain of his wife and children. Rest in peace Brian😥

Photo shows same BIG SMILE I remember. Smile was signature of Brian and part of his life. Brian always seemed happy, positive and fun to share the day with. I have couple of group photos from Lilly that includes Brian, happy to share. Photos show little more hair and yes, smile. I worked with Brian for few years before retirement, 12 hour shift. Sadden to read of Brian's passing, hope good memories remain in your heart. Keep the faith, remember the Smile. jeff beck
