Prayers for Haylee, family and friends. Brian was a "bridge builder" at work, often instrumental in doing the right thing for the plant and the people, even when higher powers were often directing him otherwise. He always found the extra time and energy to complete important projects, and strived to support all. Most of all, he enjoyed talking with people and telling us about his daughters latest adventures. God speed my friend. You will be missed.

Brian was a true example of a respectable and devoted man. We saw these qualities many times at Haley’s sporting events and the many times he came to our rescue when we had HVCA problems. The world needs more men like Brian.

I worked at Mayflower Mill in the late 80's/early 90's and I remember Brian being one of the nicest boys I had the pleasure of interacting with. I also remember running into him as a young man and having a nice conversation with him. I am always honored when the "kids" I saw at the school remember me years later. I am sorry for your loss.

My heartfelt condolences to all his family and friends. Anyone that knew Brian knew that his daughter was the apple of his eye, he loved her so. Any of his friends would tell you what a great father he was. I've known Brian for a long time and I can still see him when he was young in his baseball attire. He was such a hard worker and I don't think he ever knew a stranger. He was a great friend to me and I shall miss him so! Peace to you my friend, you fought the fight!! just as you said you would.
