    Sending my sincerest condolences to Brian’s family and loved ones. Brian, you were a great co-worker and thank you for being patient and kind while I was a trainee. You were always approachable, smart, funny, and helpful. I also appreciated you trying to practice some Spanish with me when you could to help our customers. That was really thoughtful. Rest in peace Brian.

    Rest your soul in peace Brim. I will miss hearing you rap on your way in and on your way out of the office! I loved that you bought me noodles and smoothies all the time, and I will miss our “banking & bananas” moments! Thanks for always sharing your hidden milk in the fridge with me 🙂 You will be greatly missed and I am praying for comfort, strength and peace for all of your loved ones.

  • Nathan Schmidt says:

    Brian was my friend for many years as he grew up with my cousin in Toledo and then went to Ohio Wesleyan with us for a bit before transferring to OSU. Even after he transferred to Ohio State we stayed close & remained in touch. Brim was always a good friend and we had many good times. I will remember those good times like our trip to New York City and our Ohio State vs. Michigan gameday parties. I will miss my buddy Brimmer and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

  • Ann Myers (Fuhrman) says:

    I can still see your face when you got off the plane in Savannah 10 years ago. My heart is breaking right now. I drove past your apartment while in Columbus the weekend before you left this world too soon. I’m sorry I did not stop. I can’t believe we’ve known each other ten years and I still feel like it was not enough. I am so sorry to hear you’re not with us in person. I’m glad your heart and mind are at peace but wish it was not like this. My love always my dear friend. Me xoxo
