    I grew up with Brian in Nfld for all 12 years of school. We never had cross words, and he was always an amazing athlete. I’m sorry for all his family and ashamed I’ve been in Denver and didn’t know he was here. He was taken too soon.

    Best to all celebrating his life and memory,

    Jon Shepard

    Shelby I’m shocked at this news, I’m so terribly sorry. Brian was one of the kindest, most generous young man that I’ve known. It’s been years since we’ve seen each other but it seems like yesterday we where all together sharing laughs, good times and a true friendship. Time does not lessen the shock, Brian and you will be in my prayers. Peace to you and his family, Bob McGuire
