Brian was born in Windsor, Vermont in 1945. He grew up spending most of his time outdoors, and loved to explore the trails and woods of Mount Ascutney; more than he loved the outdoors, he loved his family, and his mom's homemade cookies. Brian lived a very eventful and adventurous life. After graduating high school in 1963, Brian enlisted in the Air Force to defend the country he loved so much, working as an electrician on bases both home and overseas. Following his discharge from the military, Brian was introduced to computer technology, and fell in love with programming; until his retirement, he worked as a programmer for several companies, including his own business. He retired from Tarrant County, spending his days programming the lawn mower. When he wasn't programming, Brian spent his free time outside building various projects for the family he loved so much. Brian was a combination of just the right amount of sarcasm and heart, and could make you laugh at any moment and lighten any situation. He loved to reminisce and tell stories of his childhood, even writing a book called, “Would that we knew how to listen” inspired by his mother and his home town, and was working on a sequel. Brian will be greatly missed, but he will live on in our hearts and stories forever. The service of remembrance, will be held at Clayton Kay Vaughan Funeral Home in Alvarado, Texas, on Friday, July 17th, at 3:30 PM
