Brian was a true farmer at heart and loved being outdoors whether he was farming, custom trucking,
gardening, working around the yard, taking his grandchildren for walks and to play in the park or just
out for a drive with Brenda often looking at the fields or checking on his cattle. He was a hard worker
who took tremendous pride in everything he did including working, gardening, cooking, playing the lottery
and spending time with his family and many friends.
Brian was a strong yet kind hearted and genuine man who made friends wherever he went. He was always
willing to help those in need any way that he could and loved talking to people, telling them stories and
coming up with nicknames for those he met. He was blessed with very loving family and friends; rich in
every way that mattered.
