Brian’s greatest joys were demo derbys and spending time with his brothers William and Michael; he taught them since they were 2 and 3 years old. Brian also enjoyed hunting and fishing trips with his family, but most of all he loved playing with and teaching his boys, they were his pride and joy. One of Brian’s greatest gifts was his ability to fix just about anything. He passed on his love of Mopar’s to his younger brothers and was so proud of them.
