Brian is preceded in death by his loving mother, Judith Arlene Garrett.
He had a lot of talent and many skills. During his time in the United States Marine Corp., Brian got to travel the world. Visiting over 40 countries, he took those memories and shared them with everyone. His love for woodworking kept him pretty busy as well. He worked for many years with an exceptional work ethic as a printing press operator for TriLakes Container Company. Above all of this, his true passion was being an exceptional father and grandfather. They made many memories playing different basketball games, puzzles of any kind and building things with Legos. A big kid at heart, Brian will truly be missed by all who loved him.
