Brian enjoyed spending time with his family and provided many fun and happy moments for them to be together. He served as an ordinance worker for over 18 years in the Jordan River Temple and considered it a great honor. In 2001 he and his wife started their own business; building and managing surgical centers for pediatric dentists. They ran it together, successfully, for many years. He was a hard worker whose dedication and service were an example to all who knew him. He loved adventure and enjoyed camping, jeeping, and white-water rafting. He had a creative mind and used it to build, design and create many projects around his home. His greatest project being, a family retreat in Huntsville, Utah, where many happy weekends and holidays were spent with family and friends making precious memories that will be treasured forever.
