I didn't know Brian and his father, aunts and uncles as adults but I was shocked to see that he had passed away.
I lived across the street from Betty and Gene Vigneault in 1954/55. Betty and I and our 6( total) kids had such a good time together. We didn't stay in touch much after we moved from Bayville Park but I have pictures of Little Gene, Ronnie and my sons Kit and Scott. When I finally tracked Betty down ,by Google,I found out she had passed.
I'm so sorry for your loss Ronnie and family.

Everyday you sat next to me on the school bus and we made a place in our hearts for each other over the next 20 years. You were a big brother to me and greatly loved as family.

My condolences go out to all of Brian's family. Words cant express the shock I am still in about this devastating news. Brian and I knew each other many years; he was a great friend and his goofy personality always made me laugh. Although we lost touch over the last couple years, Brian was a part of my life for a long time. I am grateful I had the opportunity to know him and for the memories I have of my old friend.

RIP Brian, Gerta loves you!

Brian's voice was the one voice that accompanied me on my countless sleepless University nights.
Brian's loving heart was the heart that confirmed to me that not all heroes wear capes and not all angels have wings.
Brian's openness and charitability were and will be eternal reminders of how amazing creatures we humans really can be when we want to.
Brian, I will dearly miss you and remember you for your outstanding qualities till the end of my own days.
One day we will reunite in heaven and share with each other the vast amount of yet untold stories.

Sincere condolences and love from Prague, Czech Republic.

I would like to first give my deepest condolences to you and your family. May God bless your soul and grant you access to heaven for it heaven you will spend eternity in. Thy father guide him for he is a great man to many many people. Brian was a man I barely knew but highly respected. A great streamer with a adult humor that made others smile and want to be apart of his channel. His community is one big family and it is truly amazing to so many people come there and be so supportive to you. I for one heavily support you and it was a honor to watch you stream. It is noted that before you passed away you did something so admirable and unselfish that your probably already a angel looking down on your friends family community and mods. You raised $2000 for the childrens hospital on your last stream. Your family beautiful and so are your kids. Family and god will watch over them. See you later space cowboy.. -BeardedTy

I only knew Brian (Poshy) through his tank gaming streams. But after a few years you feel you get to know the man. He entertained and was loved and admired by thousands of tankers and there's not many you can say that about. He shared aspects of his life and gave great value to his viewers. He will be sadly missed by thousands of us, worldwide. His charity streams were legendary. My condolences to his family. A great guy is lost. Love and peace.

Hello, here are my condolences from the Netherlands.

You were a loved streamer for all around the world. Just a few weeks ago you joined the best Europian clan. You had alot of friends in the EU community also and always very entertaining live streams. You will always be remembered as a fantastic twitch streamer!

Streaming just doesn't feel right with out seeing you live. Remember not the sad times, but the positive times - The 13k you raised for Chairty, the endless hours of support and advice to people.

Thanks Brian/Poshy for all the priceless memories we've shared the past two years on twitch/World of tanks and endless conversations on teamspeak.

I were really looking forward to meet you at Tankfest in England this summer but I guess we'll save that one for later. You will be sorely missed.
Sincerely Alex. /DMminion
