Brian Jeffrey McCoy, 53, passed away on February 28, 2021, in Lafayette, California.  He was born in Stockton to parents Sheila and Roger McCoy.
    Brian grew up in Manteca, attended New Haven Elementary School and graduated in 1985 from East Union High School.  After graduation, Brian pursued a career working for PG&E.  He met and married, Pamela, and after 13 years, they welcomed their son, Trent.
   Brian was a man of many talents.  He started his 35 year career with PG&E in Electric Operations.  He was gifted in welding which shifted his focus to the Gas Department where he was a welding instructor for many years and then a leader over plastic fusion testing for the entire PG&E service territory.  He owned his own mobile welding business fabricating and installing custom metal gates and fences.  His home and a recently built cabin in the mountains are a showcase for his metal artistry and crafts.
   Brian's love of the outdoors started as a youth accompanying parents Sheila and Roger and sister Debbie on various camping and hiking trips along the coast of Northern California.  As a family, he enjoyed RV traveling with Pamela, Trent, and their beagle, Daisy, as they visited many National Parks.  He loved spending his weekends at the family's mountain property.  He enjoyed fishing, hiking, ATV and motorcycle riding, and family campfires.  Brian also loved to watch Trent play golf and was an avid supporter of his son's involvement in The First Tee of Contra Costa.
   Brian is survived by his loving wife of 30 years, Pamela and their son, Trent.   He also is survived by Roger and Sheila McCoy (parents), Debbie Doyle (sister), Anna McCoy (grandmother), Gary McCoy (uncle),  McKenna and Kaleigh Doyle (nieces), Rick and Lynne Rickenbacher (in-laws), Estelle Palmer (grand mother), Ricky Rickenbacher (brother-in-law), and Austin and Brooke Rickenbacher (nephew and niece), cousins and numerous friends.  Brian was  a dedicated family man who dearly loved his wife, son and family members. He was always there to help family and friends in their time of need.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
