Brian was a traditional hard-working family man that was loved by many. He placed his mark on this world one place at a time with his work in concrete. His professionalism and quality of work is what made him the renown concrete finisher he was. Brian’s excellence in work was equally matched by his ability of being an outdoorsman; he was a remarkable hunter and fisherman. He had many noteworthy contributions to society, some including his time spent training service dogs and giving to those who needed more than him. He was a great son, brother, father, and uncle to his family.
