Brian and I were very good friends for a while before I moved to Georgia. Even after I moved to Georgia, we spoke on the phone a lot, and I saw him when I would come back home to visit my sister. But slowly, we drifted apart. Every now and then, I'll see something or hear something that reminds me of Brian, and he'll pop into my memory and I'll think about how much he used to make me laugh and the good times we had together.

Recently, he popped into my mind once again when I read a story about the few remaining Blockbusters in the country. We used to work together there, that is how we met. I don't know what made me Google his name tonight, but I was shocked to see that he had passed.

I'm not sure what happened, but he was way too young to leave. I am very sad to hear of his passing.

I have only fond memories of Brian. As Rob Hammond mentioned, he genuinely cared for people and he wasn't afraid to show it.

Before I moved to Georgia, Brian was my best friend. We could talk on the phone for hours. He never turned down a trip to the movies or a good burrito. I have missed you the past 16 years, and now I will miss you even more.

Rest in peace, dear friend.

I was so sad to hear about the passing of Brian. I did not know he had passed away until June 24, 2018. I thought it was odd I hadn't heard the latest gossip about Star Trek and other science fiction for a few months, and doing some research and talking to his father, I heard the awful news. Brian was a unique person. Kind, thoughtful, caring..the list is endless. I worked with him for several years at Blockbuster in Darien, IL and he went on to work at Pisco Corporation, but we always kept in touch. Occasionally having dinner or seeing the latest Sci-Fi movie together. I will treasure the time I spent with him, and I will try to live up to the human qualities he possessed. In a nutshell, to actually give a damn about other people that mean something to you and keep them close. Rest in peace Brian. Perhaps one day we can resume our conservation about what a character William Shatner really is.
