He was born in Anchorage and returned to his home state after leaving the Marines. He was a free spirit and very independent man. Brian never shied away from a fight but was smart enough to pick and choose his battles. He would defend his family, loved ones, and those unable to defend themselves. Brian was a loving and caring son, brother, and father. He will be deeply missed.”
