Brian passed away on January 2nd closely surrounded by his family. He was survived as a beloved Brother, Husband, Father and Grandfather. He had many passions in life but nothing meant more to him than his family. He would always be quick to sacrifice his own happiness and time to make sure the family was okay and taken care of. He shared a deep everlasting love with his wife Cathy of 47 years. Both felt truly lucky to have one another in their lives and were inseparable at all times. He would always say his greatest accomplishment was “His Boys”, Brian and Sean. He loved and cherished any time spent with them and was immensely proud of the men they have become. Later in life he was given the gift of a Granddaughter. His “Madaroo” brought him so much laughter and happiness, they had a special loving bond. He was a great man who left a positive stain on everyone he encountered with his kindness and generosity. While his passing brings immense sadness, in his last days he said, “Don’t be sad for me, I lived a great life.” Please remember him with loving thoughts, cherished memories and a warm spot in your heart. He will be deeply missed.
Brian was laid to rest at Gilbert Memorial Park in a private family ceremony. You are welcome to visit and pay your respects at any time.
