This is such a bummer! Brian has been a friend and confidant for nearly 40 years. We’ll truly miss his sense of humor (on many emails!), his love of cats, and kindness to all! Our thoughts are with Patricia and all the family.

Uncle Brian,

Thanks for being a great guy. I will never forget all of the great memories of spending time up north with you. I remember you and Aunt Patricia letting me drive your van when I was learning to drive. I have missed not seeing or talking with you both. We are all thinking of Aunt Patricia, Shaun and Wendy. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Love Jason, Erica, Isabella and Ryan

we all remember with love and fondness Brian’s sweetness and the beauty of the love displayed in his marriage and with his friends. He will be missed as we continue to share memories and support Patricia at this sad time. We are together in this loss. Much love. Tracy Cercone

I always enjoyed your jokes and funnies. I didn’t know you that well but You were everything to Patricia and that made you a wonderful husband and special person. Give her a sign once in awhile it will give her comfort.

Sincerely, Sandi Reck

I am heartbroken. I just told Barb last week that I wanted to go over and see Brian. I am sad that I will never see, email, or talk to Brian again in this lifetime, hopefully in the next though. Brian was a dear friend and confidant for over 40 years and I loved him like a brother. My thoughts and prayers go out to Patricia as she gets through this sad time. Gone way to soon, but he isn’t suffering anymore.
