Will always remember Brian for his Smile and Laughter. Knew he was looking forward to a Family Event this summer and am saddened for Family this wish of Brian’s did not come to fruition. Just learned of his passing yesterday as I moved away in the 80’s yet ran into Brian the odd time and conversed from afar. Played Baseball with him and watched with sheer joy as he played Hockey quite a talent and even a better person.

May you Rest in Peace Brian and condolences to Family.

It’s with a broken heart I write this. I spent my entire childhood going to school with Brian. Holy Rosary, St. Charles and A T Clancy. Brian was always a competive spirit. We actually had a school yard scuffle at St. Charles as kids. Played house league hockey together. And always joked with each other later in life. Called me Handsandwich, Handbag and I referred to him as Pecker. Redhead as a kid. Even though later in life we were kit close friends. Whenever we did cross paths. Always talked about our childhood days. Unfortunately I will be away at the time if his memorial. He will be missed. RIP Brian.
