Brian became a very dear friend to Betty and myself. He was a down home type of friend that allowed the two of us to discuss some interesting topics of which we had experienced in our journeys of life. I thank the Lord for the opportunity to have shared a great friendship with my buddy, Brian. PTL, Gene Daugherty

Chris, I am so sorry to hear of Brian's passing. He was a man among men, our "silver fox". I enjoyed him as a Manager and more for the warm, kind man he was. God Bless.

So sorry to hear of Brian’s passing. He always had a smile and conversation when anyone would walk by his house.
