Brian was a great friend. We grew up together, playing outside as little kids, enjoying sports, going through school, and enjoying the days we spent together. He had a great sense of humor. We all miss him and can only hope he is in a better place and watched the Eagles win the Super Bowl.

I would like Brian's children to know what a wonderful person their father was. He was a great friend, always quick to lend a hand or a smile. He always made me feel welcome in his home. I will forever think of Brian with that grin on his face. Please know that Brian will not be forgotten.

Brian was always a bundle of energy in school and a lot of fun. I had the pleasure of seeing him a few years ago and he had not changed a bit. A genuinely nice, nice guy. He will be greatly missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

I went to high school with Brian. He was always energetic and smiling and such fun to have in class. My first Phila. Flyer Ice Hockey game was with Brian and Sue Bond. It was such fun - they threw raw meat on the ice to get the players pumped. I'm very sorry for your loss.

Brian was the funniest person I knew growing up. He was always entertaining us and, I must admit, I have stolen some of his material to entertain my children (Betty Botter bought some butter....). He was from a whole wonderful family and I know they miss him. RIP, buddy.

I have distinct memories of Brian as a happy smiling guy from first grade through high school. We were frequently in the same class; he could always be counted on for some fun insight. I'm thankful for the happiness and good cheer he always had with him.

Brian was a brilliant kid and a lot of fun to grow up with. Like Steve Johnson, I too have a lot of memories and regret not keeping up with him through the years.

Brian was a great friend and neighbor. I enjoyed growing up together, sharing birthday parties, going to school, playing ice hockey and going to Flyer's games. Time passes too fast and even though we lost touch, he will always be in my heart.

As chairperson of the Upper Dublin Class of 1973, we wish Brian's family our deepest condolences. Our class just had their "36th" Reunion on March 28, 2009 and Brian's smile was missed at the party.
