Brian was a vital part of the Dover Township Volunteer Fire Department. He joined the fire department in 2006 and quickly became an irreplaceable asset.

He loved the adventure that came with traveling and was always up for a road trip. Recently he spent a lot of time customizing his Slingshot and would be riding every opportunity he got. Brian was a true people person, he loved being around and hanging out with family and friends.

We are giving thanks and miss our good neighbor, Brian. Brian, was always helping his neighbors. When my 80 year old aunt needed a car, my mother suggested Brian. He went out of his way to help her and treat her fairly. When Mother was killed by trump's covid and I was stranded for four months in a pandemic, walking hours for groceries, I thought of Brian. He went out of his way to help me and my 80 year old father. Result: I did not have to walk for groceries this winter and could deliver to my father. God sends us angels to meet the needs of His children. James 2:16- He was there for us when we needed help and helped us with what we needed. Our prayers and gratitude are with his family. Our community will miss Brian- there is no greater tribute to the value of a man's life. Prayers for safety for his colleagues with the Dover Fire Department. What greater love than to give up your life for a brother? Thank You all.
