I worked for Brian at the Central Library back in 2007-2008. I was so sad when I heard of his passing. He was a good boss and a truly decent person - not many like him in the world. Please accept my condolences.

I will plant a fruit tree in his honor at the Stein Family Farm, a nonprofit where I teach a pruning class every January.

We are so sorry for your loss. Brian was a great classmate to be around. We missed him at our 50th reunion a few weeks back and he was so kind to send us a photo & a little write up about his life that will be in our mini yearbook. Carol, we will send one to you when we get it done.
