Danielle, It is with great sadness that we learned of Brian´s passing. My partner Andrew really enjoyed the time they trained together and I enjoyed getting to know your family while Lucas was in Hebrew school with me. We can hope that you and boys are wrapped in the comfort of your family and Beth Am community. We add our deepest sympathy. May his memory be a blessing.

Brian was a wonderful man. I met him at the Chase bank. He told me that he wanted to take his sons to Israel. I will miss him.

I had the pleasure to meet Brian at Chase he was such a kind and giving person. He always to the time to say hello and talk with me. I told Brian I went to school with his mother and he couldn’t believe it I truly am going to miss his smile and greeting when I go to Chase. Lesley not sure you remember me but I think you do my prayers are with you and your family.

We are so very sorry to hear about Brian and would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the entire family. We have known Brian from Chase Bank for many years. We also would see Brian and his boys sometimes at The Continental Restaurant. Brian was ALWAYS a wonderful man with a warm smile and friendly conversation. He spoke often of his family whom he loved very much and was very proud of them. He will be missed by all who knew him. Lonny and Barb Fleischer
