      Brian and Bob were friends of mine from Westwood in Simpsonville, SC. We went to school together starting at Morton Elementary (which no longer exists) up to Hillcrest High school. My deepest condolences to the family.

        One of the nicest, funniest friends I’ve ever known.
        Went all through school with him and Bob. I used to go over and spend the night with them as a kid.
        This really tore at my heart when I heard about it. I am and will be praying for your family at this time. God blessed Brian in many ways and I know that he will be missed here but he will be welcomed there✝️

    For the past 24 years, I could not have asked for a better best friend or coworker than I had in Brian! The world has lost one of the most talented, compassionate and hard-working nurses I have ever had the pleasure to work alongside. I will forever treasure the belly laughs, the long talks, the camaraderie he and I shared! I was always amazed at what a way Brian had with people- he would break upon them like sunshine after a cloudy rainy day, unbelievable how fast he could make them smile and laugh! He’s truly going to leave a huge rip in the fabric of our lives that will slowly close but never fully mend. That’s how much he touched the people in his life. I miss you SO very much dog!
    Sending positive thoughts and praying so hard for Cherie, Brendan and Garrett.

    I grew up with Brian and Bob, living just down the street from them. Though not always close to them, both Brian and Bob flow thru my early memories from Morton and up to graduation from Hillcrest.

    We were all children of the MTV generation and 80s excesses. We survived those times into our adulthood in various ways.

    Brian will continue to shine in the memories of those he touched throughout his life, and the sons he left to continue his lineage. May his memory grow in the hearts of his friends and family.

    Y’all are a great family! Keep strong!
