Our dear sweet Brian lived and breathed for his family, friends, coworkers and the game of basketball. From the endless games of basketball in the driveway to working on his handles in the house, his love for the game goes unmatched. He was always quick on his feet and thinking of others effortlessly passing the ball to elevate the team no matter the scenario. 


He brought a humble, selfless and goofy personality that truly touched many lives. One could see the pride he carried for his family beam ear to ear. He had an uncanny ability to get people to open up and used this listening power to comfort and uplift. He carried those he encountered on his shoulders supporting however he could. We will miss his unconventional thinking, silly antics to make us smile and his mastery of spreadsheets/programming.
