Obituary Condolences

Brian Gene CONLIN Oct 10, 1966 ~ Feb 1, 2011 Brian was taken suddenly and much too young on February 1st, leaving heartbroken family and many grieving friends. We remember what he did and who he leaves behind, but passionately we honor who he was. Brian was a husband who truly loved his wife, a father smitten with and devoted to his girls. A faithful son and brother. Brian was a trusted friend who inspired and supported, a colleague who mentored and encouraged. Brian believed in you even when you didn't believe in yourself. Brian was the bright future and the good times ahead, and at his core believed in that for all of us. Brian was win win (followed by the crack 'that means I win, and I win again'). Brian was dawn when all was dark, and when dawn was late, he was unfailing confidence. Brian was the guy you hoped to see at the party, whether it was the Union Michigan Hog Roast, the pitch meeting, the family card game or 'Drinking Liberally' with the county Democrats. Brian was the quip, the laugh, the juicy steak when the rest of the world was hamburger. Brian was 'how do you like me now?' - 'the kid' - the cool uncle. Brian's night came too soon, but his light shines through all of us touched by him. We can't believe he's gone. Rest in peace. Rest now. Brian is survived by: His wife: Kim Hutchinson. Daughters: Skylar & McKenna; Siblings: Ken, Sean, Kelsey, Kyle & Ryan; Mother: Marigene Lutz; Father & Step-Mother: Ken & Denise Conlin; Brother-in-Arms: Doug Davis. And other assorted relatives, in-laws, friends and colleagues too numerous to list. Services info: Washington.
