Brian H. Brothers was born in San Diego, California, on Nov. 14, 1964. He fought a long, drawn battle with lymphoma. After a year and a half dispute with cancer, his exasperated physical body gave way to all of his worldly affairs in Bozeman on June 10, 2014.
The Guest Book is expired.
Brian graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in industrial design, as well as graduating from Montana State University in architecture. He worked as an architect with Big Timber Works. He was a volunteer fireman, served a mission in Chicago Korean speaking, a bishop in Utah, served presently as the 1st counselor in the ward bishopric, as well as alongside Andrea as a wonderful parent.
He spent every waking moment teaching his children through example of the beauty in the outdoors through boating, hunting and skiing. Music was the essence of Brian's soul as he sang in the Bozeman Symphony as well as in the LDS choir as his booming base tone vibrated the pews in the chapel.
He is survived by his parents, William S. Brothers and Ella (Haynie) Brothers, who are residents of Provo, Utah; his wife, Andrea Lynn Bruce Brothers (married Aug. 12, 1988); his three children, AndeeLyn Brothers Wardell (Ryan Kent Wardell), Qwinton William Brothers and EllaDiana Brothers; and his loyal furry friend, his dog, Smokie.
