He was born on March 2, 1975, in Henrico County, Virginia and grew up in Leeds, Alabama. Brian was an amazing father, brother, and friend. Brian never met a stranger and would take the shirt off his back to help someone. He will be remembered for his funny personality and his empathetic caring heart.

Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2023, at Leeds First Baptist Church. Visitation with family will take place at 10:00 am, followed by the service at 11:00 am.

Brian will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. His memory will forever be cherished, and his legacy of love and kindness will continue to inspire those who were touched by his life.
