I've never seen such a proud and active dad, picking you up every day from school and making time out to eat lunch with you every week.

  • Although I didn't know Brian very well, he was always cheerful when I saw him, and he wanted to make our neighborhood a better place in which to live by helping "patrol" the neighborhood pool to make sure everyone was behaving properly. He even cleaned up the bathrooms that had been horribly vandalized. I've heard from so many people what a loving, devoted father he was. He will be greatly missed.

  • My husband,Claude, and I remember Brian from our neighborhood. He always had a smile on his face. Brian would get such a kick out of our Halloween costumes we wear each year. Once, when Claude lost his wallet, it was Brian who returned him. Our thoughts and prayers are with Brian's family at this difficult time. He will be deeply missed by all.

  • Brian, as an older brother who looked after you in your younger years and then some, took up for you OFTEN, drove you and your friends around at times, took you to places like six flags, even told you to get lost a few times as older brothers tend to do at times, I did my best to lead by example and it was times like those that I will always remember and cherish and be thankful that the good Lord blessed me with that opportunity. Now I can only pray that you are in a better place to where you can now return the favor as an angel for and over not only me but also my family, Morgan and Hunter and your mother and sisters. PS Tell Dad I said hello.. I love you and will miss you. Your Brother always...

  • We lost touch after we moved from Mckinney. Our son and daughter were friends with Morgan and Hunter and grew up together. Brian was the most awesome, sweet and big hearted person I have ever meet. We loved him ,Morgan and Hunter so much. We have missed you all and you are always in our thoughts and prayers. I am deeply saddened and wish that we would have known much sooner. I am so sorry.. You are in our hearts and prayers always and forever.
