A recent week in Minnesota relaxing and enjoying nature was a highlight.  Chicago was also a destination that was enjoyed and he and his wife looked forward to exploring new places.


Brian was an avid fan of Oklahoma Football and he could be found many Saturdays at Memorial Stadium cheering on his beloved Sooners.


Family was important to Brian and he greatly looked forward to spending time with his loving family and friends. Being a dad was a highlight of Brian’s life and spending time with his kids and keeping up on their lives was important to him.

  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. May God Bless you and give you peace. RIP Brian, cheer for those Sooners in heaven.

  2. Brian wasn’t just my little brother, he was my best friend. He loved his friends, his family, and OU. I believe that the 1st thing Dad taught us to say was “Sooner born, Sooner bred, when I die I’ll be SOONER dead.” Brian left us wearing his OU colors and now he’ll be watching OU games in the ONLY football field built in Heaven at “the Palace on the Prairie” aka GAYLORD Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. BOOMER SOONER LITTLE BROTHER, I love you and will miss you my man.

  3. So sorry to hear about this ? Brian was such a great guy! He’ll be missed by many! Prayers for his children and his family.

  4. I am so shocked to see/hear of this loss. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Brian was a Maize friend and I will always remember him fondly.
