    Brian displayed his faith in dramatic fashion in a church play at All Saints Parish in Puyallup in 2004. He played the pastor who gave advice to the frustrated mother struggling to put on a church play in spite of many obstacles. Brian brought calmness and wisdom to his role. He did a great job in what was the first of many stage productions at All Saints. May his family, relatives and friends find comfort in the memories of experiences they shared with him. Rest in peace, Brian.

    He was a fantastic uncle, always kind hearted and went out of his way to visit us. I will never forget his heart of gold, or how much love he showed for my brother and I. He will be sorely missed and I take comfort in the fact that he's with grandpa now and that is truly wonderful. Brian, I love you and I look forward to seeing you again in the future. May you truly rest in the peace that you rightly deserve. Your loving nephew
