Brian Edward Koscher

1960 - 2015 SIMSBURY, CT Brian Edward Koscher died unexpectedly on Friday, August 28, 2015. Brian was born on September 5, 1960 in Pittsfield, MA to Sheila (Kelly) and Edward Koscher. During his youth his family moved several times but returned to Pittsfield for Brian's teen years. He graduated from Pittsfield High School in 1978. He went on to attend Boston College where he formed lifetime friendships and met his best friend and future wife, Christine Boswell. They graduated in 1982 and were married in 1985, having their first child, daughter, Michaela in 1990, followed by son, Brendan in 1993. Brian began his 33-year career in 1982 with Dexter, which later became Ahlstrom. He held a variety of sales, marketing, operations, and management positions over the years. His job required him to travel extensively to destinations around the world for many years, which Brian thoroughly enjoyed, but as his children became active in sports and other activities, Brian chose to transition into the operations side of the business so he could be home to coach soccer and baseball teams, and participate in their other activities. Brian enjoyed sports both as a player and spectator. One of his most cherished memories was watching his son, Brendan, get to say "Play Ball" to open a Red Sox game at Fenway Park on Father's Day 2003. Brian was known for his wittiness and one-liners, his love and knowledge of music, and his Trivial Pursuit prowess but most importantly, he was known as a loving family man. He was the consummate gentleman, dependable and supportive, and convivial in every setting. Dearest to him were his wife, Chris, daughter, Michaela, and son, Brendan. Brian loved spending time with his extensive network of family and friends. Brian is also lovingly survived by his mother, Sheila Koscher of Pittsfield, father, Edward Koscher of Vero Beach, FL, sisters, Nancy Koscher of Oakland, CA, Susan Lacey and husband, Joseph of Charlestown, MA, and Karen Jones and husband, Nicholas of Alpharetta, GA.
