Wade, Laura and family…
It’s hard to believe that Brian is gone from this world. We send our sincere condolences to y’all at this time of great sorrow and sadness. May the good Lord bless you and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you, not only now, but for years to come. It comforts my heart just knowing that he is with the Lord in a place I can only imagine to be everything this world is not. Go rest high on the mountain Brian, soar like an eagle.

Brian spent some time with me in 2018, when he worked on the winter road. I really enjoyed his company, and have good memories of our time spent together. We all love him and will never forget him. Granny Gracie ❤️

Brian and I worked together for about 5 years. He always had a big smile and was the first one to jump in and do what needed to be done, no matter what the task. I quit pipelining in 2017 and haven’t see him since, so when I texted him a couple months ago to see how he was doing I was shocked to hear what he was going through. Brian was a great man and friend to me and out whole crew and would often talk of his family and nephews at home while we were at work. I hope the family can take comfort knowing how much he loved them and that his suffering is over. Brian definitely did not deserve this fate but I know I will see him again one day with that big smile and a laugh crashing away at the demo derby in the sky. God bless your family through this time and I thank you for raising such a good man.
