Remembering Uncle Brian


Brian's niece Julie sent this picture of her dad and Uncle Don with her Uncle Brian. It was taken at her sister's engagement party. What a great shot of the three of them.

Remembering Brian from Germany

In Oct 1993 I came from Germany to Atlanta to work as an intern at SKWChemicals. The former secretary of SKW introduced me to some of theirbest friends to which Brian belonged. I was a complete strangerknowing nobody and nothing about this big city. These days Brianhelped me a lot to get along in my new surroundings. Though we nevermet before he made me feel to be a part of his local life. We met withfriends to go out, we were at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, at Helloweenparties and of course at Yellow Jacket-games. Brian did what I thoughtwas impossible: He made a German guy understand the rules of AmericanFootball and enjoy drinking American beer out of cans while laughingabout Beavis and Butthead. These few months I spent in Atlanta truelyenriched my life and I will never forget them. Thank you Brian, mythoughts are with you whereever you are now.
