He attended and graduated from Wells-Easton High School in 1968 and then attended South Central Vocational School. He held many jobs as a salesman in agriculture and it came very natural to him. He was a great storyteller and was always able to get and keep people’s attention with his wit and sense of humor. Brian was also a giver, he supported his community by serving on the Freeborn and Gibbon Fire Dept. as a fireman and EMT, but it also went beyond that as he was always willing to help those in need on and off the “clock”. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church serving on the council and administration committee. He also enjoyed riding motorcycle, hunting and fishing.
