  1. Net, Megan, and all of you boys….we are heartbroken at Brian’s passing and wish so that we could be there with you! I will always remember “big city cousin Brian” coming to visit in the summers in Iowa – great memories! He will live on in our heart and memories! Take care and we send lots of hugs your way. Sincerely, Sharon

  2. I met Brian for first time on Saturday, July 21 when I dropped off my car through recommendation of a friend. He was so pleasant to deal with and showed the love of Jesus in his personality and talk. Praying for the family.

  3. “Mooser” left a mark on all of us. He was one of “Demko’s boys” when we wrestled together at USL (I think he was always coach’s favorite). At that time we all were figuring out where we “belonged” in the world. Brian was usually the responsible one of our group who seemed to know where he was heading but that never stopped him from searching. There were moments, however, when we brought him down to “our level”. It was then that the “little boy” that existed inside of him came out. Whatever side of Brian that was showing, he was always someone to respect.

    Net and Meg, you had the opportunity to share a life with a great father and husband. When the sadness of your loss seems to be overtaking you,try to remember the good times and laughter you shared together doing “silly stuff”. He would want you to celebrate those moments and the love you shared together.

    To my former roommate and friend whom I haven’t seen very often in recent years, we’ll miss you. Keep a spot in heaven saved for the rest of us.

  4. “Mooser” was as solid a person as I’ve ever met. He always seemed to have a better idea of his future than any of the rest of us on the USL wrestling team and, despite our best efforts, that focus occasionally helped bring us around to reality too. After Brian & Net moved to TX we only saw them a few times but we knew he was going to be successful both in business and as a father & husband. We know that he could “let loose” when he wanted to and we are sure that happened often when it came to family and those will be the lasting memories you will cherish forever. Our deepest sympathies and prayers during this time of sadness. Denis & Margie
