Brian had a passion for life and never met a stranger. Whether it be spending time at the Moose Lodge or sitting around a fire with friends, he always had a great time. On any given day, he could tell you the number of days until Christmas. Brian was an avid sports fan who enjoyed golf with his best partner Donna and cheering for his favorite teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penn State Nittany Lions. He loved to travel with Donna and road trip to Jasper to visit his Children and Grand Darlings. Brian always said his children and grandchildren were his greatest accomplishments and was ready at a moment’s notice to show you their most recent pictures. His joy and laughter will live on and always be remembered.
