Brian was a loving father and husband to his daughter Kelsey and wife Sharon. He was a true friend to everyone he met and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He never met a stranger. When you saw him‚ he always had a big smile on his face. When times were stressful‚ he would always make you laugh and would not leave you alone until you had a smile on your face. Brian was a proud and dedicated firefighter. He was most proud of making Lieutenant only three days before his death. The part he loved most about the fire service was helping others in their time of need. Brian you are loved and missed by your family and fire family‚ but we all know that you are in a better place. Brother‚ until we see you again‚ remember that you are our hero.
