Brian was a resident of Manteca and French Camp, attending Nile Garden Elementary School and going on to graduate from East Union High School in 1993. Brian grew up with a passion for music and played the guitar like a true “rock star” He enjoyed weight training and mixed martial arts. He would never say no to an afternoon windsurfing with his dad. Brian was the apple of his mother’s eye; she said that “Brian had a smile that would light up a room”. He loved his sister dearly and thought of his brother-in-law as the brother he never had. Brian was an unconditional friend, he was always there for anyone who needed him. Brian leaves behind many broken hearts and many memories of love and laughs that will continue forever. He will be missed.
